Toronto, ON — Sept. 3, 2002 — V.J. Pamensky Canada Inc. of Toronto, the exclusive Canadian importer of WEG electric motors, has moved into a new head office and warehouse located at 64 Samor Road in Toronto, not far from its previous premises on Orfus Road.

The move coincides with the 25th anniversary of Victor Pamensky’s founding of the Pamensky company. The original location in 1977 consisted of 600 sq ft of space in a suburb of Toronto, and a staff of two.

Demand for the motors created a series of moves into successively larger premises and expansion across the country. The recent move has increased the warehouse and head office space from approximately 40,000 sq ft to 62,000 sq ft and increased efficiency by having one Toronto warehouse location instead of two.

Today, the inventory of WEG electric motors in Canada is one of the largest electric motor inventories in the country, through warehouses in Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.

“WEG’s 25 years of growth in Canada has come from a combination of a great product and a lasting partnership of dedicated people in Canada working with wonderful people in Brazil,” says founder Victor Pamensky.
