Beckhoff joins REAI members

The Grouping of compagnies in Industrial Automation (REAI) is pleased to announce the arrival of Beckhoff Canada as a member. Offering products through its offices in  Toronto and Montreal, Beckhoff implements open automation systems based on PC Control technology.

As the second Beckhoff Automation Ltd. office in Canada, the 2,223-square-foot facility sits within the country’s second largest metropolitan area, boosting the ability for Beckhoff to supply and support manufacturers, machine builders and tech companies throughout the region.

The Laval office establishes an automation solution center for Beckhoff customers in Quebec, located conveniently within driving distance from downtown Montreal and Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. The facility boasts collaborative space for Beckhoff customers and employees to develop innovative automation and control projects. A dedicated training room is available for customers to increase their engineering knowledge of Beckhoff PC-based control solutions and to enhance programming expertise in areas such as PLC, motion control, safety technology, IoT connectivity and more.

Beckhoff’s “New Automation Technology” philosophy represents universal, open control and automation solutions used worldwide in a wide variety of applications ranging from CNC machine tools to intelligent building automation.

“Beckhoff strives to meet customers where they are to provide expert service on an individual level,” said Calvin Wallace, managing director of Beckhoff Canada Ltd. “The strong legacy of manufacturing in Greater Montreal, and Quebec in general, spans a number of industries that increasingly rely on PC- and EtherCAT-based control technologies. Flexible, high performance solutions from Beckhoff are perfectly suited for all manufacturers in the region, from machine building, to automotive assembly, consumer products and more.”

Ted Sarazin, regional sales manager for Quebec and eastern Canada, runs day-to-day activities at the Laval facility. “We are excited about all the new opportunities that the Laval office now makes possible,” said Sarazin. “Customers across Canada, and regionally here in Quebec, have recognized the benefits of control systems that feature PC-based hardware, EtherCAT networking and TwinCAT software technology. This office location makes direct interactions with customers more efficient as we provide local product support and application engineering to help their business operations grow.”
