Vykan: About Us
Who we are
What We Do
At Vykan we are a team of dedicated professionals that are looking to help you create and manufacture your project.
Born from a need for a customer friendly Watejet service in the Niagara region Vykan was created by three Niagara born and raised residents. Our shop that is located in the heart of the Niagara region (just over the St Catharines Skyway) provides fast quality cutting services to many different types of customers in and around the Niagara/GTA areas. Being a part of the Niagara Industrial community is a very important part of our company. We value the opportunity to be part of the Niagara Industrial Association and to take part in all of the great events that bring the manufacturing community together.
Our buisness model is built of supplying superior service and knowledge to the public about waterjet cutting and the amazing possibilities with this type of machining. We offer servcies in industrial metal fabrication, metal art projects, and parts production.
We cut parts and do projects from many different industries that include: Machine shops, architects, local artists, marine engineering, mechanical engineering, designers, jewelers, and many more!
