About Fx Bricks
Fx Bricks is a specialized company combining the creative wonder of LEGO® bricks and electronics engineering expertise. This potent combination injects life into LEGO® creations with the magic of light, sound, animation, and automation. We have extensive experience building models of all sizes, themes, and complexity. This includes everything from desktop kinetic sculptures to fully automated model train layouts.
Fx Bricks is based in Ottawa, Canada and is federally incorporated. Fx Bricks has comprehensive in-house engineering design and software development resources. All design and development activity is performed in-house. Our laboratory facilities include ESD-safe surface-mount electronic assembly and rework stations, electrical test equipment such as power supplies, oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, spectrum analyzers, and signal generators, and machine-shop tools for mechanical work. Lastly, we have sizeable LEGO® brick collections that are sorted and organized! This allows us to rapidly make models to complement our design and development activities.
We aim to provide the highest standards of quality and value to our customers. We value engineering discipline coupled with the principles of creative design and attention to detail. Pride in one's work and respect for craftsmanship are among the values we hold in the highest esteem. This commitment includes our choice of materials, choice of suppliers, adherence to industry standards and best practices, and continuous product improvement.
We are committed to protecting our environment through our policies on manufacturing and choice of industry partners. We exclusively manufacturer our electronics in accordance with the European Union RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC which restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electronic equipment, in particular, the use of Lead-free solder and certified Lead-free electronics. We try to use local suppliers wherever possible in order to contribute to our local economy and to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation. We host the Fx Bricks website using web hosting services which are committed to using 100% renewable energy to power its data centres.
