About IncreTech

Phone: 905-481-2228


IncreTech is a SR&ED consulting company with a focus on keeping customers, not getting them.  The business model is flat, with no marketing, sales, or admin departments that have to be paid out of the fees we charge our clients.  We believe in using seasoned engineers with real industrial experience.  We also believe our clients want to see the same face year after year.

Our chief consultant and owner is Mike Sherrard.

Mike is a Professional Engineer who graduated from Mechanical Engineering at University of Toronto in 1991.  He started preparing SR&ED claims full time in 2002 for SR&ED consulting firm Northbridge Consultants, where he became the most senior consultant.  I left Northbridge and established IncreTech in February 2008 with the aim of providing the same great service at a bargain price point.

IncreTech’s consultants have prepared over 400 successful claims for more than 100 companies in industries as diverse as tool & die, food & beverage, clothing, electronics, software, windows & building materials, machinery, automotive, biomedical, furniture, waste processing, chemicals, plating, finishing, printing, packaging, casting, and moulding.

Mike had 12 years of industrial experience in a number of industries prior to becoming an R&D consultant:

· Coop engineer-in-training at what is now Bombardier’s Dash 8 aircraft plant in 1988-89… learning the basics of practical structural engineering and assembly design.

· Plant engineer at a flex circuit board plant…learning troubleshooting techniques for equipment controls, presses, clean rooms, photoresist, CNC drills, acid and alkaline etch lines, electroless & electroplating, solder reflow, and waste management.

· Structural analyst in the Nuclear Group at heat exchanger maker BWXT...establishing a very solid foundation in static, dynamic, and thermal stress analysis.

· Designing and sled testing Rockwell automotive seat adjusters was a solid background in dynamic failure modes for assemblies.

· Designing advanced automotive engine vibration dampening equipment at Litens Automotive gave him a solid grasp of the challenges systems face when things are hot, corrosive, and vibrate.

· A year of special projects at aluminum die casting company Orlick Industries gave him a good grounding in liquid metal and heat flow, tool design and processing, automatic machining, fixture design, and leak testing.

Having a consultant with broad experience benefits the client in a number of ways.  Knowledge of structural analysis, vibration, wear, corrosion, electronics, automation, and control programming can aid in practical understanding across many industries, sometimes in ways that help the client with their industry specific problem.  Also, it allows IncreTech’s consultants to come up to speed quickly regarding the client’s technological challenges.  This results is less effort on the client’s part and stronger claims.
