Beckhoff Automation has moved its Canadian headquarters from Mississauga to Cambridge, Ont. to increase its warehousing space.
The 11,000-square-foot office offers space for customer training, seminars, sales activities and technical support.
The “Innovation Lab” can be used for application testing and proof-of-concepts with the latest Beckhoff technologies, including the XPlanar “Flying Motion” system and the eXtended Transport System (XTS).
The new facility also offers the subsidiary a larger central warehouse, ensuring more on-hand stock and fast deliveries to Canadian customers.
Beckhoff says it moved to Cambridge to be connected to the Waterloo region, which houses Canada’s largest cluster of robotics and automation companies and a preeminent engineering school and research centre focused on robotics, automation and artificial intelligence.
The new office sits right off Highway 401, Canada’s largest superhighway, making it convenient for local visitors and those arriving from Toronto Pearson International Airport.
“The new Cambridge headquarters has increased not only our corporate footprint but also our capabilities to serve Beckhoff customers. We are excited to be located in the technology-rich Waterloo Region, which puts our team closer to key customers and partners in the automation industry,” says Calvin Wallace, managing director of Beckhoff Automation Ltd.
Beckhoff Canada also operates regional offices in Laval, Que., and Burnaby, B.C.
The company maintains numerous regional offices in cities across North America, including U.S. headquarters in the Minneapolis area and Beckhoff Mexico, established in 2019, in Mexico City.
