Spectrodata moves to an Old Mill!!
May 26, 2017

Spectrodata has relocated its head office in Markham Ontario.  Our new home is located in a beautiful historic old mill at 4160 Nineteenth Ave, Markham, Ontario.  Our phone numbers remain the same. 

Everyday, our Spectrodata team come to work in the Almira Mill (Flour, Grist & Woolen) which was first built in 1844 by Benjamin Bowman.  The large, three story brick structure was divided in half from top to bottom by a heavy fire wall of brick, the west half being the feed and flour section and the east half the woolen mill.  In the flour mill, there was a large French burr-stone flour grinding complex, as well as two grain grinding machines and an oat roller.  The basement of the woolen mill held a large flume, three water turbines, and a scouring machine for washing blankets and fulling special heavy all-wool cloth such as horse blankets.  On the first floor were a heavy power picker for shredding the fleece, a complete set of carding machines and an auxiliary gasoline engine which was used when water levels were below normal.  The second floor held the large spinning machine, a yarn twister and reel and a large broad loom.  One of the machines was capable of turning out one complete blanket in an hour and there were two power knitters that could turn out five dozen pairs of socks a day.  The woolen mill was the only one of its kind in the province.
