Roarockit is a small company with many friends and associates. Over the past 16 years, people have been closely associated in many different ways. We have always surrounded ourselves with supportive friends, family, professionals and entrepreneurs. The creative spirit is a huge part of our Roarockit team, and every person involved has made their mark in some way, and we are grateful for their contribution.
Headquarters in Toronto
Ted and Norah (co-founders)
