Established Key Players

Success Story:

Global Engineering Company Chooses Burlington for $28 Million Dollar Customer Experience Centre

Endress+Hauser Canada first set up shop in Burlington thirty years ago with only a handful of people. The company now employs close to 100 team members, providing the latest in industrial process engineering solutions to companies in a variety of industries.    

The team at Endress+Hauser cited our city’s close proximity to world class educational institutions and markets as the prime benefits of operating here. 

 

They’ve noted that the BEDC and Burlington’s City Council are really invested in helping businesses achieve their desired growth.  As an added bonus, they like the fact that everybody here knows their neighbours, and that we exude a small town feel.   

When it came time to build a state-of-the-art $28 Million dollar Customer Experience Center, the company’s executive team reached out to us.  With the support they received, they felt there was no reason to go elsewhere, and now the 47,000 square foot facility, designed with bold sustainability goals in mind, is set to open soon.
