CANSTech Exhibitor Spotlight: Hilti Canada

“The construction industry is one that seems to be lagging in terms of technology adaption. With material costs, increased competition, shrinking margins and the fact that productivity levels have remained stagnate for many years, now is the time that businesses need to investigate adapting technology more than ever.

It can provide real-life experiences to those who are unable to get the opportunity to visit an active job-site.”
