Polaris Motion is a local company and our love is engineering, science and software development. We were founded in January 1994 by two brothers Tom and Mile Erlic, and we are now into our 24th year of business. We have clients all over the world and our home is Victoria B.C. This is where we conduct R&D, product development, assembly, final test, marketing and sales. We are experiencing steady growth and we have recently opened a branch office in Taiwan.
Our main market areas are ultra-precision optics and ultra-fast laser-based manufacturing, including ablation and 3D printing. We've developed unique motion control technologies and we continue to develop hardware and software that put us ahead of our international competition. It is because of our talented staff of engineers, scientists and software programmers that we're able to beat out our competitors for success in many high-end design-ins.
The mood of the company is casual but determined. We love our barbecues and company events, including dinners and movies (usually sci-fi), but we're also very serious about making our latest software release rock solid.
Our company values include commitment, integrity, truth, and respect (CITR). We value a culture that is innovative, creative, and competitive; one that fosters a climate of high team spirit, fun and accomplishment; and one that promotes personal growth and development. We strive to empower our employees to achieve their full potential.
