Creating Motion Solutions to Help our Customers Make Positive Change in the World
Our vision is to enable our customers to create new value in their markets
We provide innovative precision motion solutions in the packaging, assembly, semiconductor and robotics market segments. Our team reimagines how to solve industry challenges; collaborates with our partners on new designs; or helps them improve their motion systems already in the field.
To ensure that we can deliver on our vision, we have developed, and continually improve our critical capabilities. Our people, partners, and culture are what help us bring our vision to life.
The support we receive from our parent company Koch Engineered Solutions, along with our contract manufacturers, distributors, drive partners, and systems integrators work together to make us a preferred partner. We want to be the partner to take your products to the next level.
Genesis began as a research and development company over a decade ago. Since then, we have added rapid prototyping and production capabilities, while maintaining a strong research and development team. Over 40% of our employees are engineers. Our headquarters are in BC, Canada and we have an experienced commercial team and partners across North America, Europe, and Asia.
Here to Stay
In 2018, Koch Engineered Solutions made a strategic investment and acquired a controlling interest in Genesis to commercialize its disruptive motion technologies. The investment solidifies Genesis’ long-term vision, ensuring future product innovation and ongoing client support.
