Oerlikon Balzers Opens New Facility in Canada
With the opening of its new facility in Guelph, near Toronto, Oerlikon Balzers Coating AG, Balzers, Liechtenstein, part of the Surface Solutions Segment of the Oerlikon Group, significantly strengthens its presence in the Canadian market.
The one-stop shop leverages the combined competencies of both Oerlikon Balzers and its sister brand Oerlikon Metco, bringing customers the benefits of a full set of surface solutions for the automotive and aerospace industries. The new service center will provide thin film coating (PVD) including nitriding and regrinding services – a complete solution for tool reconditioning. Additionally, it will offer the complete portfolio of thermal spray services.
The new center will play a key role in strengthening the Surface Solutions Segment’s position in the highly competitive Canadian market, especially in Ontario and Quebec in eastern Canada. “Guelph is the perfect location for our company,” says Steve Crowley, President of Oerlikon Balzers, North America and Director of Operations and Sales, Americas. The new center in Guelph currently employs almost 20 people. New services will be added in a second step, especially to serve customers in the aerospace industry.
