January 30, 2019 – Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, which specializes in metrology and manufacturing solutions, has expanded into western Canada with a new office in Calgary, Alberta.
The new 160,000 square-foot, silver LEED-rated facility location and its staff will serve the region’s range of manufacturing industries including aerospace, oil and gas, advanced composites, MRO, agriculture, bus and rail, machinery, wood products and more. The facility will accommodate business offices and a training room, with ample space to offer seminars covering Hexagon’s metrology and manufacturing technologies including laser trackers, articulating arms, scanners, CMMs, software and automated solutions.
Heading the regional office, Alberto Silva will serve as a sales engineer for west Canada, covering Manitoba through British Columbia. Silva’s background includes the oil and gas industry and the manufacture of rotating machinery. He applies over 20 years of technical sales and consulting expertise to finding solutions for complex problems and making processes work better for the customer.
“We are excited to now locally serve the growing manufacturing industries of western Canada,” says David Hill, commercial operations manager for Canada at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “The Smart Factory movement is opening people’s eyes to the benefits of dimensional measurement throughout the product development cycle.”
The regional office is located at the Hexagon Calgary Campus, which opened in September 2018, at 10921 – 14 Street NE.
