About Javelin

Your Canadian 3D Solution Provider

Javelin Essentials

Founded in 1997

More than 6,000 Canadian businesses use our 3D design applications and services to create amazing products that improve efficiency, safety, medical care, and the environment.

Javelin has been around since 1997. Our company had its beginnings in Oakville, Ontario with a partnership between Ted Lee and John Carlan — a classic Canadian start-up story that began over coffee meetings at a Tim Horton’s.

A Canadian Business

Javelin is firmly rooted in communities all across Canada, with seven offices operating in five time zones. And beyond our Canadian borders, we are known all over the world as one of the best in our industry.

Students & Educators

In recent years, we have focused heavily on our customers in education. At one time that focus was almost entirely on post-secondary classrooms.
