We are 20 years old!!!

22 February 2021

While 2020 may have been a year most would rather forget — for us at Fidus, it was special.

Fidus is now 20 years old! And as we celebrate 20 years of success, despite the challenges of COVID-19, we are seeing growth, yet again.

When we went into lockdown last March, we made a commitment not to make any layoffs or pay cuts, or to force staff into a reduced work week. Now, nearly a year later, we’ve not only maintained our staff, we’ve actually grown — adding capable individuals to our teams, building our company strength. This has been our consistent pattern; in our 20 years we’ve completed over 3,000 projects with more than 400 customers. We’re grateful to our dedicated staff, loyal customers and world-class partners for helping us reach this milestone.

Where we started

Having started as a specialist design engineering partner in board design, we’ve succeeded in achieving consistent growth for the past 20 years. Every year we’ve challenged ourselves by setting, and meeting, impressive milestones. It’s how we’ve grown to become North America’s leading design partner in technologies as varied as PCB layout, to signal and power integrity, to FPGA. Our trusted team of some of the most experienced designers in the industry has granted us the reputation of constantly delivering the highest-quality designs on time and on budget. It’s also enabled us to be selected as strategic partners of some of the leading names in the industry, like Xilinx, Analog Devices, Lattice, and Synopsys to name just a few.

How we are doing

One of the highlights at Fidus is the culture we’ve nurtured. Despite being a well-established firm of 20 years, the daily buzz of the brightest minds working on the latest technologies makes it feel like a startup. We have a habit of taking good ideas from any employee and implementing them straight away. Why wait? It’s one of the reasons we’ve been able to attract the greatest talent in Canada and North America, nurturing local talent and doing our part to deliver amazing solutions to our customers.

We are thankful to our all of our Fidus families – staff, customers and partners — we couldn’t have come this far without you, and we can’t wait to see what we will do together in the next 20 years!
