GF Machining Solutions, along with the group’s sister division GF Piping Systems, has begun construction of a new joint regional headquarters in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. The companies broke ground for the new 20,500 m2 (67,000 ft2) facility in late October 2019.
The new Canadian headquarters will feature a 1500 m2 (4,800 ft2) demonstration centre, along with full sales and service support staff. Also serving as a distribution centre, the facility will reportedly streamline the sales and acquisition process for customers, as well as help shorten delivery times.
“Investing domestically in Canada and improving upon our local services will further enhance both GF Machining Solutions’ and GF Piping Systems’ abilities to serve the Canadian market,” stated Philipp Hauser, President – Head of Market Region North and Central America for GF Machining Solutions. “Manufacturers in this region have come to know and understand the quality, strength and reliability of the GF brand, and this new facility will provide easy, localised access to our full range of manufacturing technologies.”
