“Moving to Mississauga aligns with our business strategy to invest in more Sales and Marketing personnel to take advantage of the market opportunities and to accelerate the growth and success in Canada,” says Bill Gray, general manager, Uponor Ltd. “Mississauga is a business and technology hub — with neighbors such as Microsoft, Siemens and DuPont. And the greater Toronto area provides a desirable location for recruiting and retaining employees as well as a diverse and exciting environment for profitable business development.”
Located 35 minutes from downtown Toronto, Mississauga has a population of 700,000, making it Canada’s sixth largest city. Its close proximity to the Toronto business district as well as the Toronto Pearson International Airport makes it an ideal location for future sales and marketing strategies.
The Regina office will remain the center for Uponor Ltd. Technical and Design Services in addition to Sales and distribution for western Canada. The Brampton, Ont., facility will remain the distribution center for eastern Canada, and the Laval site will remain the sales hub for Quebec. The current toll-free phone number will allow access to all Uponor Ltd. Canadian offices for an easy, single point of reference.
“We’re continuing to make positive changes to streamline our business and marketing strategies in Canada and throughout the entire Uponor organization,” comments Gray. “This move is just one of several key factors that will help us better position ourselves for success in the future.”
