KUKA Robotics Canada, a subsidiary of KUKA Roboter GmbH, one of the world’s leading suppliers of industrial robots, has officially opened its new facility in Mississauga, Ont.
The facility is home to KUKA Robotics Canada’s sales, applications, service and engineering staff to support customers in reviewing applications and applying robotics technologies to improve productivity and quality while reducing costs and ergonomic related injuries.
The fully equipped facility includes spare parts, training, and a demonstration area to provide customers with an opportunity for ‘hands on’ experiences with the latest technologies and products.
Located in one of the largest corporate and industrial sectors in Canada, there are five major highways within 10 kilometers and Toronto’s Pearson International Airport within minutes that ensures KUKA Robotics can provide quick access to its customers and major markets throughout Canada.
KUKA Robotics Canada’s president, Chris Claringbold, states, “The location is well-suited to KUKA’s needs, allowing our Canadian Team to offer greater support of products and services to KUKA’s growing customer base. We continue to expand our staff to provide sales, service and engineering support for our customers both in the English and French languages. Our focus is to make sure our customers, both machine integrators and end-users, are provided an opportunity to learn about the latest advances in robotic technology and show them how we can help improve manufacturing productivity. We want to help Canadian manufacturers remain competitive and profitable in Canada.”
