About Us


RST was founded in 1977, when Robert Straghan Sr. built a better pneumatic piezometer. We’ve come a long way since then, but some things haven’t changed. Relentless curiosity and a drive to solve exciting problems still fuel us.

In our bustling lab, we’re continually devising original solutions to evolving engineering challenges. Our sensors enable the next generation of projects so you can go places you’ve never been before with confidence.

For over 40 years, RST’s pioneering technologies have enabled iconic infrastructure projects, including dams, tunnels, bridges, and more. From our base in Western Canada, we’ve grown a reputation for right-fit solutions that span the lifecycle of your project, from designing and building to training, installing, inspecting and updating monitoring systems.

That’s a legacy worth protecting.

I’m very happy with the quality of the instrumentation and technical support from RST, as always. They worked with us from the initial stages of the project to ensure that we were fully prepared and equipped to use the RSTAR network for the first time. They delivered everything within the tight project time frame to ensure that there were no delays on site, and the submersible tilt meters looked like new even after over twelve months of being submerged in Thames water!
