Canarm re-focuses on manufacturing of commercial/industrial ventilation products
By HPAC MagazineHPAC General HVAC Systems
Canarm Ltd., a global marketer and manufacturer of lighting, livestock stabling, air moving and related products supplying the residential, agricultural, commercial/industrial and HVAC markets, broke ground recently at its expanding Brockville, ON facility.
In recent years, Canarm has doubled its HVAC production area at this facility on Parkedale Avenue to 100,000 sq. ft. and invested in state of the art manufacturing technology and robotics to provide the speed, accuracy and quality required for today’s energy efficient ventilation products. The new expansion will add an additional 90,000 sq. ft. to its existing structure in two phases to be completed over the next several years. Phase one, which will begin by the end of August, will see the addition of approximately 57,000 sq. ft. Phase two allows for the addition of 32,000 sq. ft. as required.
This first addition will be used primarily for warehousing so existing space can re-focus on the manufacturing of the commercial/industrial ventilation products produced at the facility.
“Brockville is HVAC – we have great people and expertise that we need to put more building around to serve our customers better. We continue to re-invest in assets that are valuable to our customers!” says Canarm president and chief operating officer Jim Cooper.
Canarm is a privately-owned company that has been in business for over 80 years. It employs more than 300 people in North America, while owning the production in nearly 30 China factories.
