Affiliated Business Ventures
The Matrixflo Group of Companies includes a variety of different businesses, that span several industries. Matrixflo Inc. is the central hub for all Affiliated Business Ventures (ABVs), which will vary in the type of ownership and operational structure.
Matrixflo seeks businesses that align with our competencies, providing synergies with existing ABVs and will provides both cashflow and future growth potential. Most commonly, target acquisitions will offer products and/or services with a growing demand, be innovative, and provide strong return on equity.
Matrixflo is well connected and often works collectively and collaboratively with other organizations to achieve its sales goals. Of those working relationships, in some cases a joint venture arrangement, either in a co-operative manner or establishing a separate business, can be advantageous. Matrixflo has strategic alliances and consortiums with key manufacturers, allowing its ABVs to be competitive in their markets.
Similar to joint ventures, partnerships can realize the benefit in creating a more structured working arrangement between parties, thereby agreeing to cooperate to advance their mutual interests.
Formation of New Subsidiary Entities
Acquisitions can be wholly owned or majority owned subsidiaries, but in some cases it will be appropriate to create new subsidiary businesses to fill a market need.
Creating affiliations with other entities is another way for Matrixflo to leverage and strengthen synergistic relationships.
Investment in Technology
Matrixflo contributes to the industrial innovation space by investing in the development of marketable novel technology.
Matrixflo is currently working with the University of Alberta Power Electronics Lab to develop intellectual property related to micro grid solar power generation, which will eventually be widely licensed in industry.
Matrixflo is working on a collaborative project with the University of Alberta in developing a portable microchip-based medical diagnostic technology. This project is a co-operative program between the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta.
