Jaye Robinson – Founder and C.E.O.
Australian born and bred, Jaye moved to Canada in 2009 initially for one year but has not looked back and has since made Canada his home. Jaye officially founded Austech Industries Ltd. on November 16, 2011. He solely built the business from the ground up; first as a Heavy-Duty Field Mechanic, operating his own service truck in the Canadian Oil Sands, to growing it into the large-scale entity it is today.
From the inception of Austech Industries Ltd. to the current rebranding of ATI Canada, Jaye has been a pivotal factor in the company’s stellar reputation which he earned first with his own two hands. Since then, he has since backed up this reputation by bringing aboard the best mechanics in the country.
Jaye is immensely involved with controlling, implementing, and overseeing the business’ growth through all stages of the Oil and Gas and Mining industry’s rapidly changing markets. With his vast dealership knowledge from Caterpillar & Sandvik, he has built this company into a leading competitor within the Canadian Mining Original Equipment Manufacturer’s (OEM) and has since expanded operations across Canada.

His professional career led him to Project Manager for Shovels in Western and Eastern Canada and then to more senior supervisory and management roles. With a focus on productivity and workforce execution, he has become a valuable member of our Executive Leadership team.
