Tulsar aims for expansion at its new Brantford facility
By HPAC MagazineControls Management
Tulsar Canada is hoping to quadruple both its production and its workforce, adding up to 150 new jobs at its 135,000 square foot facility in Cainsville in the industrial area east of Brantford, ON. There are currently 50 people working in engineering, customer service, marketing, administration, manufacturing and quality control.
“We are excited about our future in this community,” George Micevski, president of Tulsar Canada, said at the ribbon cutting ceremony that officially opened the new location. “It is in a great location between Buffalo, Toronto and Detroit, has an economy that is growing and a healthy industrial sector — a quick drive along Highway 403 to see some of the brands with a Brant address is testament to that.”
Tulsar Canada, a division of the Louisville, KY,-based Zoeller Corporation, is an engineer and manufacturer of water and wastewater pump control panels, each custom designed and built in Canada to the unique requirements and specifications of its clients.
“We are very optimistic coming to this community and opportunities we have,” said Zoeller Corp. CEO, John Zoeller. “We have some big growth plans for this operation. We appreciate all of the work our employees have done to get us to where we are here today.”
Founded more than 36 years ago in Kitchener, ON, Tulsar’s products range from the Sentry — a Wi-Fi-enabled residential high water alarm — to engineered custom water and wastewater control panels for industrial, commercial, recreational and municipal clients.
Zoeller Canada, the distribution arm of Zoeller Corporation, will also be housed under the same roof in Brantford. Zoeller Canada supports its pump customers with engineered water solutions for the same customers and industries.
