About REM Technology

REM Technology Inc. is a technology development company specializing in providing solid, proven optimization technology for reciprocating machinery. Our technology usually comes in the form of a packaged control system with our application software and application-specific engine/compressor modifications, sensors and end devices to deliver customer expected results. This technology can also be offered as components or stand-alone applications that can easily interface to existing customer control and monitoring systems.

REM Technology Inc. (RTI) goes to market via a representative channel system. Each representative is carefully chosen to have the right technical, sales, service and marketing skills and customer relationships to support our target customer base. RTI provides its products and application support and expertise to the representative, who, in turn, supplies RTI products and services as needed by the customer.

RTI and its representatives have sold more than 400 systems to companies such as Chevron, BP, Exxon, EnCana, Petro-Canada and Conoco, to name a few.

RTI will continue to focus on providing cost-effective control and monitoring solutions for compression equipment owners that enable their reciprocating assets to run safer while being environmentally compliant with increased efficiency.

Our before and after machinery efficiency and emissions audits enable us to document the mechanical condition, performance and emission rates before and after the installation of the REMVue®. This provides our customers with quantitative business results of their new REMVue® engine performance system. We have numerous documented examples of where significant reductions in energy consumption and emissions as well as substantial increases in reliability have resulted from applying REMVue® technology to existing engine and compressor operations.

We are working with a number of institutions and industry associations to investigate new innovations on ways to further reduce the environmental impact of reciprocating equipment. Innovative applications of technology to industrial processes are sure to continue yielding environmental benefits. As responsible members of society, the REM Technology team is proud of its continuous environmental contributions.

REM Technology Inc. came into being as a result of Spartan Control's 1998 acquisition of CARMA Systems Ltd. The name "REM" was chosen as an abbreviation for Reciprocating Equipment Management, signaling that the new company would utilize a combination of CARMA's technical and manufacturing expertise in diagnostic equipment with Spartan's knowledge and experience of compression applications and service capability. The CARMA technology originated in 1986 when a project was commissioned to acquire field data from engines and compressors. The resulting products represented an innovating advance in technology.

Spartan Controls Ltd. was launched in January 1963 with its appointment as the Alberta representative for Fisher Governor Co. Spartan's compression business unit evolved in 1967 with the addition of representation for AMOT Controls.

Spartan Controls has established itself in more than 45 years of operation as a premier organization selling high-quality process control equipment and instrumentation from leading manufacturers, while maintaining the highest degree of customer service, efficiency and competitiveness. Since its inception, Spartan has steadily evolved as numerous changes and growth occurred.

Spartan has steadily increased its repertoire of representation for companies including Emerson Process Management, Rosemount Instruments, REM Technology and Farris Pressure Management. The head office is in a 100,000 square-foot facility in Calgary, Alberta, with a 107,000 square-foot facility (sales, training centre and warehouse) based out of Edmonton, and regional service centres across western Canada.

Spartan and its 1,000 employees is pleased to have been named as one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Private Companies, and has achieved Platinum level, indicating it has been a “Best Managed Company” for six or more consecutive years.

Spartan is a privately-held, employee owned company. REM Technology is wholly owned by Spartan.
