Our History

In-House Solutions was incorporated in 1988 as a one-man home-based operation. The business was based on solving customer problems by using microcomputer-based CAD/CAM technology. The company aimed to partner and collaborate with customers (machine shops and manufacturers) to solve their internal design, CNC machining and CNC programming production problems. At the time, this technology was new and the market was non-existent.

Today, we have an international network of customers in the CNC and Quality Control markets. We represent a wide variety of software solutions including Mastercam, CIMCO, and Verisurf, while also proudly offering our training materials, custom-developed post processors, consulting, services, and training. As we grow and as the industry evolves, we continue to expand our expertise and solution offerings to reflect our purpose.

Our Team

At In-House Solutions, our team of 50+ people comes from various backgrounds that include Manufacturing Engineering Specialists, Applications Engineers, Software Developers, and Technical Business Specialists. We have built our company by carefully selecting the people that not only bring superior technical knowledge, but also passionately subscribe to our purpose and goals. Our four core values of Teamwork, Agility, Excellence, and Integrity are embodied by every member of our team in everything we do.

We pride ourselves on being experienced technology enablers. We are a driven group of talented individuals passionate about solving complex technology problems and pursuing innovative improvements. We are proud of the network of customers and partners we’ve established, and value these relationships above all else. We have a deep understanding of the manufacturing industry, and we enthusiastically welcome all new challenges and changes that it provides.

Our Partners

In-House Solutions has a vast network of partners that includes CNC machine tool OEMs, tooling OEMs and measurement solution providers. While we are traditionally known for our experience in the industrial sector, we are also proud of the many relationships we have cultivated with educational partners worldwide, ranging from high schools to colleges and universities. This can be seen through our involvement with Skills Canada events, in the work of our dedicated educational support staff, and in the many personal partnerships we have developed with individual instructors and teachers.

We work closely with other Mastercam Resellers in the United States and distribute Mastercam Post Processors and Mastercam training materials to support this channel.

We are an active member of CMTDA (Canadian Machine Tool Distributors Association), and Communitech whose mission is to help technology companies in the Waterloo region launch, grow, and succeed. We are also members of several industry associations including the CTMA (Canadian Tooling & Machining Association) and more.
