CEO Message

We can finally see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel and the future looks bright. This year reminded me what an incredible team can achieve when adequately set up for success. The investments we have made over the past years—to build The Novanta Way, our culture which is based on collaboration, inclusion, and trust, and to refine the Novanta Growth System, our toolkit and set of practices to accelerate innovation—have paid dividends for the last two years. They have been the glue that kept us motivated and mobilized behind our vision: to deliver innovations that matter.

Our Chair and CEO, Matthijs Glastra
