Endress+Hauser celebrates 30 years of serving Canadians
May 5, 2020, Burlington, Ont. – Endress+Hauser Canada is celebrating 30 years of serving the process automation needs of Canadians.
The company states in a press release that for three decades it has been building strong relationships with customers based on a singular premise: Their success is our success.
Endress+Hauser Canada was incorporated on May 1, 1990 and opened offices in Burlington, and Montreal, Que. two months later. Since then, offices have been added in Calgary and Edmonton, Alta. – the latter now part of a 20,000-square-foot sq customer support centre that opened in 2017.
Construction on a new 47,000-square-foot customer experience centre in Burlington designed to achieve LEED Gold certification will start as soon as able.
The two state-of-the-art facilities in Edmonton and Burlington, both of which include a world-class process training unit (PTU), are meant as examples of technology in motion where the company showcases the best-in-class technologies in the process automation world and provides customers with hands-on experiences and training to get the maximum benefit from their instrumentation investments.
“It’s been a memorable three decades, full of extraordinary achievements that have also put us in a position to do extraordinary things in the future,” says Anthony Varga, CEO and general manager, Endress+Hauser Canada. “We have an incredible portfolio of best-in-class products and solutions, capable of keeping our customers on the cutting edge for many years to come. Our ability to support our customers throughout a project timeline or product lifecycle is second to none and we believe we are quite unique in that respect.”
The Burlington facility will leverage those strengths. Besides a PTU, it will house a calibration laboratory, an expanded workshop and a large training centre. The PTU concept, featured in Endress+Hauser facilities globally, is essentially a pilot plant with a wide range of Endress+Hauser instrumentation installed. Customers can try out products before purchasing them or familiarize themselves with how they work before installing them in their operations.
