“We believe in the power of people. When you are as future-minded as we are, executive development is not just for the executive suite. We are investing in our people so they build the future of MDS.”
CAROLE MORRIS, Director of Human Resources
Founded in 1985, MDS started off as a construction company in Montreal, Quebec. MDS moved into the gas turbine engine testing business when they received an opportunity from Canada’s Department of National Defence. This made us the only Canadian company to establish themselves in this specialized sector of aerospace. With our roots in construction and specialization in engineering complex solutions, MDS boldly entered the international market. We designed and constructed a world class engine test facility for Morocco’s national airline, Royal Air Maroc, in 1990 ultimately putting MDS on the international map. Since then MDS has grown to be the distinguished supplier of gas turbine engine test facilities to the world’s most renowned engine manufacturers.
The owners of the company come to the office every day, meaning our workplace is also their workplace. Perhaps this is why we live, sleep, and breathe our corporate values: communicating for engagement, operating as one team, acting promptly and with purpose, owning every outcome, and playing the long game.
We are not only competitive in our industry, we believe we are also at the forefront of employee programs and benefits. This is a glimpse of what we have to offer:
Behind the scenes we’re powered by people. MDS’s success is directly attributed to our ability to attract and retain unrivaled expertise in fields from mechanical engineering to software development to aerodynamics and acoustics.
At MDS, our employees are provided with the tools, mentorship and training to ensure that they are successful and can achieve their professional and personal goals.
Our team members describe working at MDS as fulfilling, exhilarating and inclusive. They enjoy our unique projects; we never design the same thing twice! We build snowflakes.
“There’s passion here at MDS which is not always seen in other companies. The opportunity to travel worldwide, work with a variety of different companies and in different countries was certainly something that attracted me to MDS, and one of the main reasons I chose to come to here.”
“What I like best about MDS is working with a good team of people. We’re a very cohesive team and we all work really hard together in order to accomplish the tasks we’re given. Part of what’s interesting about working here at MDS is that a lot of your colleagues have similar interests as you do.”
“We do a lot of interesting technical things at MDS, and that brings a lot of personal satisfaction. Designing something on paper, witnessing it being built, and then seeing the scale of it in operation, that is very rewarding.”
At MDS, we care about the communities where we live and work. We are committed to supporting causes that matter to our people and our communities. And we aim to make a difference through corporate donations, sponsorships, and local annual fundraising events.
