Expert Speaker: Steve Ostrowski

Steve Ostrowski graduated from Centennial College in 1984 as an Engineering Technologist in Fluid Power and Robotics. He spent the first eight years of his career designing and selling automation equipment and control systems while at Festo Inc., a world leader in machine controls. In the 90’s, while at Arvin Industries, he concepted and pioneered an adjustable shock absorber that redirected the company from a commodity culture toward one of performance product development.

In 1996, he won the Arvin CEO Award in the fourteen thousand employee company for a manufacturing engineering idea that virtually eliminated quality defects at a key welding station. In 1999, Steve co-designed and patented a plastic folding structure, founding UniFold Shelters Ltd. The design is now used exclusively at every emergency department in the Province of Ontario, and by every Hazmat Team in the States of New York and Utah.

Steve sold the company to Strategix in 2004 and continued as a partner housing reconstruction workers in post Katrina Louisiana and Mississippi. During that time, he designed, patented, and manufactured the Paraslyde Patient Transporter, for Paramed of Utah, which was later purchased by Stryker Medical after settling a breach of contract suite with Steve and his US partner.

In 2007, Steve recognized the design benefits of the single-track canopy actuator and founded ShadeFX Canopies Inc. Since that time he commercialized the design and adapted it to higher value market needs with the creation of the ‘topside’ version. With the transfer of leadership to a management team, Steve continues to contribute in the role of Senior Product Specialist at ShadeFX.
