COVID-19 Status Update from our President/CEO to our Partners
To Our Valued Clients and Suppliers,
With concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic growing with each passing day, Wade Antenna/TACO Antenna’s top priority is to protect the health and well being of our employees, clients and community. We are monitoring events as they develop and will continue to follow the guidance of federal and provincial health officials.
Wade/TACO service and supply the very unique Telecommunications industry which services both Military and Civilian customers. This sector of business meets the requirements of Essential Services criteria as defined by the Canadian and US Governments. In keeping with this directive, Wade/TACO will continue manufacturing our products to ensure our orders are fulfilled for our customers throughout the time health related measures are imposed by the existing Covid-19 pandemic. To the best of our ability, based upon the requirements of Essential Services, Wade/TACO will strive to remain on schedule with all confirmed deliveries. To meet these expectations our suppliers have also committed to ensure the availability of raw materials as required by our production schedule.
In light of current health recommendations to best protect everyone, the following protocols have been put in place until Monday April 6th, at which time we will assess the continued need for these safety measures:
- To promote social distancing, our office will not accept visitors, although we remain open for business. In-person meetings have been halted, but we are happy to speak by phone or correspond over email.
- We will maintain staff in the office and on the manufacturing floor to support our business and service our customers.
Please be assured that we are working diligently to balance the needs of our clients with the welfare of all concerned. These are challenging and unchartered times, but we will continue to strive to provide exceptional products & services despite the necessary tweaks that have been made to our usual course of business.
Thank you for your partnership, please take good care.

We are very pleased to announce that Blake Dickson has accepted the position of President and CEO of Wade Antenna Inc. Blake is already quite familiar with the company operations as he has been serving as a member of the Board of Advisors.
Blake’s role at Wade will be the President/CEO responsible for all Employee and Financial objectives set out by the Board. His mandate will be working with the Wade management team and employees to grow the profitability of the company and to widen Wade’s product portfolio to better meet our customer’s needs.
Blake has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, major in Sales and Marketing from Wilfrid Laurier University. His background includes almost 30 years of industrial sales and management, beginning at Stelco in Hamilton in which he was fast tracked through many production and commercial functions. After Stelco Blake joined Ivaco Rolling Mills before becoming part of the ownership group for Rotalec, a Montreal based distribution company focused on sales, service and support of High Technology products. Blake progressed through several functions at Rotalec including Mill Products Specialist, Division Manager, VP and finishing his career at Rotalec as the President/COO. During Blake’s career at Rotalec the company has doubled in size and expanded to having divisions in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Blake’s wide range of experience will create growth in existing and new markets leading Wade to become a more diversified and steadily growing company. Blake is very excited about this new challenge and will be involved in Wade management meetings during the month of June as he finishes his current role at Rotalec and begins to take over his new responsibility.
We look forward to working with Blake and are very pleased he has taken on this important role at our company.
