The Team at Gridpath Solutions Inc. is led by Rick Marshall.

Rick was principal in the development of the Food Program for Flow International and was instrumental in assembling the press technology from ABB and the pumping technology from Flow. From these roots the commercially viable UHP processing industry was born.


In order to satisfy the ultimate customer needs and fill in the production gaps Rick has assembled a team of associates from the automation, material handling, and high production environments.


In addition, relationships have been established with key UHP machinery and component suppliers, to ensure we have the best connection to hardware and component supply.


All of our activities are customer-driven, and our inventive group embraces the challenges of solving “opportunities” from design concept, and machine development, to the final production process. Gridpath constantly works to reduce the operating cost of the equipment, on a per-pound-processed basis, while ensuring that maximum uptime is achieved.


Gridpath’s Stoney Creek, Ontario facility houses state-of-the-art manufacturing and communication equipment, from CAD/CAM, to a largely CNC machine shop which includes water-jet cutting equipment. Gridpath knows and understands the most stringent of food industry specifications, and we meet or exceed all in our manufacturing processes.


Gridpath’s Stoney Creek location is ideally situated, as we are less than 1 kilometre [1/2 mile] from the main expressway, and are mid-way between the international airports of Toronto, Ontario, and Buffalo, New York. Further, it is only half an hour travel time to/from Hamilton International Airport.


Gridpath has a varied customer base, and we value each relationship. We have a huge respect for those who embrace our passion for this process, and the machines we support. Gridpath is totally dedicated to the success of our customers, as we fully understand that their success means our success. Your Gridpath partners are proud of what we do, proud of our customers, our products, and each other. Please let us show you what we have to offer.
