Beckhoff Automation has moved its Canadian headquarters from Mississauga to Cambridge, Ont. to increase warehousing space.

“The new Cambridge headquarters has increased not only our corporate footprint but also our capabilities to serve Beckhoff customers. We are excited to be located in the technology-rich Waterloo Region, which puts our team closer to key customers and partners in the automation industry,” says Calvin Wallace, managing director of Beckhoff Automation Ltd.

The 11,000-square-foot office offers space for customer training, seminars, sales activities and technical support, and the “Innovation Lab” can be used for application testing and proof-of-concepts with the latest Beckhoff technologies, including the XPlanar “Flying Motion” system and the eXtended Transport System (XTS).

The new facility also offers the subsidiary a larger central warehouse, ensuring more on-hand stock and fast deliveries to Canadian customers.

Beckhoff says it moved to Cambridge to be connected to the Waterloo region, which houses Canada’s largest cluster of robotics and automation companies and a pre-eminent engineering school and research centre focused on robotics, automation and artificial intelligence.

Beckhoff Canada also operates regional offices in Laval, Que., and Burnaby, B.C., and maintains numerous regional offices in cities across North America, including U.S. headquarters in the Minneapolis area and Beckhoff Mexico, established in 2019, in Mexico City.
