Beckhoff Automation has opened a new office in Laval, Quebec in an effort to increase its direct sales and support presence in Canada.
“As the second Beckhoff Automation Ltd. office in Canada, the 2,223-square-foot facility…establishes an automation solution centre for Beckhoff customers in Quebec, located conveniently within driving distance from downtown Montreal and Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport,” Beckhoff said in a statement.
As the regional sales manager for Quebec and eastern Canada, Ted Sarazin will lead the day-to-day operations at the Laval facilities.
On top of increasing regional customer support, the new Beckhoff facility will offer a collaborative space for Beckhoff employees and customers to work on and develop automation and control projects. According to a press release the space will also provide a training area where customers can become more acquainted with Beckhoff PC-based control solutions, while also learning about a variety of hot industry topics such as IIoT connectivity.
“We are excited about all the new opportunities that the Laval office now makes possible,” Sarazin said. “Customers across Canada, and regionally here in Quebec, have recognized the benefits of control systems that feature PC-based hardware, EtherCAT networking and TwinCAT software technology. This office location makes direct interactions with customers more efficient as we provide local product support and application engineering to help their business operations grow,” he said.
Beckhoff maintains its Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario.
