Burlington, ON — Hagglunds Drives (Canada) Inc., a unit of Hagglunds Drives Inc., North America, Columbus, Ohio, has opened a new Canadian headquarters facility in Burlington, Ont.
The new location houses sales offices, technical product support and repair facilities, and a warehouse for the company’s industrial hydraulic motors and drive systems. The company was previously in a smaller facillity in nearby Stoney Creek, Ont.
Hagglunds supplies products to the pulp and paper, off-highway, marine and offshore, mining, recycling and other industries.
“Our company has made this commitment to relocate and expand our Canadian operations in order to provide superior sales and support to the ever-increasing customer base we are experiencing, primarily in the pulp and paper, mining, building and construction, and rubber and plastics segments of the Canadian marketplace,” said John Duncan, president of North American operations.
“After 25 years of operation as a tenant in our Stoney Creek location, our own new, dedicated company space now offers customers a larger, centrally located facility with greater inventory capacity, additional modern test facilities, and the capability of greater product repair and refurbishment throughput,” said Mal Robertson, business unit manager for the new operation.
The new facility is located at 5040 Mainway, Unit #7, Burlington, Ont. Hagglunds also has branches in Vancouver and Montreal. The firm’s parent, Hagglunds Drives AB, is headquartered in Mellansel, Sweden.
