The Gastronomous advantage
Every Gastronomous project starts with the voice of the customer. We need the customer's input to design the right solution for you.
Once we understand your needs, our engineers will collaborate with your team to design the ideal solution.
Our team has the expertise to take designs from a prototype to a certified product.
This story begins in 2015..
Kitchen innovations inspired by automotive engineers
In 2015, Gastronomous formed with the vision of combining 'Gastronomy' with 'Automation.' Its founders, having spent more than 20 years in the automotive industry, are experienced in building automated production lines. This background allowed them to identify opportunities to apply modern automation technologies to the commercial kitchen.
Gastronomous was born in Oakville, Ontario. We set up a laboratory in a garage and started to prototype our ideas.
Collaborated with the University of Waterloo RoboHub Department, a global leader in robotics research.
We moved into our current showroom/technology center and developed Canada's first fully autonomous kitchen.
Developing state of the art technology with industry leaders.
FANUC is the world’s largest industrial robot manufacturer, with over 600,000 robots installed worldwide. Gastronomous is an exclusive Authorized System Integrator (ASI) of FANUC Robots for the Kitchen Automation space in North America. Our founders have had a longstanding relationship with FANUC since 2007.”
The MMRI (McMaster Manufacturing Research Institute) is a Department of McMaster University, a leading Canadian engineering institution. The MMRI provides world-class expertise to help streamline advanced manufacturing processes and has a team of engineers dedicated to designing solutions for Gastronomous.
University of Waterloo RoboHub
In 2017, we launched a research collaboration with the University of Waterloo RoboHub Department, an international leader in robotics research. We assembled a group of Ph.D.'s and Master's Students specializing in Robotics Engineering, to develop algorithms that would enable multiple six-axis robots to perform real-time tasks within a kitchen environment.
SONAMI’s (Southern Ontario Network for Advanced Manufacturing Innovation) advanced equipment and innovation centers help us turn ideas into commercialized products. Gastronomous’ very own Andrew Skrepnek is considered one of SONAMI’s largest success stories, with their joint projects helping bring multi-million dollar contracts to Canada.
