WILMINGTON, Mass. (Jan. 2, 2017)—Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) announced the opening of a new Canadian sales and support hub, Watson-Marlow Canada Inc. in Concord, Ontario, according to a statement from the company.

The new office was established to deliver Canadian customers full local sales support for customer service, engineering and supply of all WMFTG products, the company said.

The new Canadian office and warehouse are staffed by a team of specialists who will provide the complete range of WMFTG solutions, including Watson-Marlow peristaltic pumps and precision tubing; Bredel rugged, high-flow hose pumps; low-shear MasoSine sinusoidal pump technology; Flexicon aseptic filling and capping systems; ASEPCO aseptic valves; BioPure single-use connector systems; FlowSmart high-purity sanitary products; and Alitea OEM peristaltic pump solutions, according to the company.

The company said existing Canadian customers in regulated industries should know that there is no change in previously secured product validations, even though the WMFTG product will now be supplied through the new Canadian hub rather than from the U.S.

Steve Lavargna, Sales and Marketing Director - Americas, said, “At WMFTG, we take great pride in innovating problem-solving pump and fluid path technologies that meet the critical needs of our customers. Our investment in Canada underpins our commitment to customer focus, delivering our customers the confidence and convenience of local expertise and support. Now operating from our Canadian hub, we look forward to enhancing our service to existing Canadian customers while reaching new markets and customers throughout the country.”
