After several years of investments in sophisticated design and construction of the most recent extension phase housing its new Bio-Circle facility, Walter Surface Technologies says its international campus is now complete on its original Montreal site, and is poised to grow in all of its business segments.
The company says the 92,000 sq. ft. facility serves as the overall international headquarters for the Walter Company, encompassing corporate management, R&D, laboratories, product management, test centers, marketing, sales, warehousing, distribution and service. Construction of this campus represents an investment over $30 million, the company says.
The new Bio-Circle also complex contains a high-tech bottling plant where production capabilities are increased 10 fold while quality control guarantees a flawless end product. Key components of this new facility include automated bottling systems, massive mixing and storage tanks, sophisticated pumping and packaging systems, the company says.
“We really are about performance, safety, and sustainability. We’re dedicated to helping our clients work better by providing the best possible Walter products and by making Green Work with our Bio-Circle Environmental Solutions line of products. The new campus is a major asset for our future growth,” says Pierre Somers, chairman and CEO of Walter Surface Technologies.
“Now, we have the automation, the processes, and the facility to help us execute our core value of delivering products and solutions that help our customers work better. Today, this focus on ‘making green work’ is leading to the development of environmentally helpful initiatives which are increasingly welcome in our industry.”
Walter Surface Technologies had more than 300 guests at the campus opening, including some of Montreal’s top business leaders and key metalworking industry executives. Tours were conducted by members of the Walter team, which provided close-up views of products at work, the company says.
