On March 4, 2010, Festo inaugurated its new Customer Solutions Center at its Mississauga, ON, headquarters demonstrating how it will better help customers find the solution they need.

“With Festo continually expanding its range of electrical and pneumatic technologies for process control, we are determined to show our customers that we are more than a place to purchase their parts√¢‚Ǩ”we are a solutions provider,” said Casey Samaroo, Customer Solutions Manager, Festo Inc.

Along with showcasing Festo’s constantly evolving leading edge technologies, the new Customer Solutions Center will offer its customers a place to examine first-hand how Festo’s custom-tailored solution will work via a project simulation.

“Every day, Festo is asked for solutions for electrical and mechanical enquiries,” explained Samaroo. “Now with the Customer Solutions Center, Canadian customers can partner up directly with Festo engineers on-site to replicate situations to determine the best workable solution.
