Mississauga, ON — Oct. 8, 2001 — Siemens Canada, Ltd. and Siemens Energy & Automation (USA) have formed a new Canadian-based sales, support and marketing services organization for Computer Numeric Control (CNC) products. It provides Canadian customers with local contacts for orders, service and technical assistance.

“The establishment of local marketing and sales resources reflects a growing CNC business in Canada. This market has previously been served by the Motion Control Systems Group of Siemens Energy & Automation located in Elk Grove Village, Ill., and South Lebanon, Ohio,” said Guenter Brecheis, senior vice-president, Siemens Canada.

A recent study by the ARC Advisory Group, a manufacturing technology consulting firm, has ranked Siemens AG as the top supplier in the global CNC market. “In Canada we plan to build on this position of leadership to expand the products and services we offer to the Canadian market even further,” added Brecheis.

“We will also benefit from being in close proximity to the worldwide centre of competence for PC-based CNC platforms that Siemens has created in the US. This expertise will continue to be available to the Canadian market,” said Brecheis.
