Almex Expands to New Corporate Facilities, Increases Production Capabilities.
Almex Group will officially open its new international headquarters and production facility in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, in early 2009. The addition of this Canadian location to the historic flagship Parry Sound factory was motivated primarily by the company's commitment to its customers to reduce lead times for new machines and improve the turnaround for spares. Strategically located close to Toronto, the newly renovated 26,000-square-foot building will also house the Almex Group international headquarters, the offices of Fusion Systems Canada, and the newly launched Almex Institute training facilities.
The newly acquired property just north of the Queen Elizabeth Way in Burlington, Ontario, is ideally suited to the multipurpose designation for the facility. With room for future expansion of both the production areas and offices, Almex Benson Drive boasts multiple loading docks, overhead cranes, and a cold storage room. Multiple office areas are strategically located throughout the building to facilitate the functionality of each division. Each year international Almex clients and personnel from the Almex offices and distributors from around the world trek to Canada for tours and training. A state-of-the-art media-equipped boardroom will welcome these frequent Almex visitors.
