Metrology firm’s Manufacturing Intelligence division to build 15,000-sq.-ft. facility in Oakville.
Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division announced it has selected Oakville, Ontario for the site of its Canadian headquarters. Currently under construction, the 15,000-sq.-ft. GTA facility will house up to 100 employees after the project’s completion, scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2019.
The workplace configuration accommodates a training center, multiple meeting rooms and offices for Hexagon teams in product development, quality assurance, sales, engineering, customer support and administration. The facility will also include a product showroom for Hexagon’s metrology and manufacturing technologies.
Hexagon says it will consolidate all its Manufacturing Intelligence businesses in eastern Canada into this central location, which includes headquarters for Forming Technologies’ development, sales and engineering, MSC Software, and teams from Hexagon’s production software and metrology products. In 2018, the company also opened a large regional office called the Hexagon Calgary Campus in Calgary, Alberta, which serves as the head office for multiple Hexagon divisions in western Canada.
