Invensys Invests In Western Canada

Automation supplier Invensys Process Systems (www.invensys.com), a unit of London-based Invensys plc, says it is making a larger investment in Western Canada, with significant expansion of its overall customer sales, engineering, and support capabilities.

“As one element of our expanded footprint in Western Canada, we’ve recently broken ground for a brand new, 15,500 square foot regional headquarters facility in southeast Calgary. This will be twice as large as our present Calgary facility and will have three times the staging area to accommodate staging, testing, and verification of our customers’ automation systems,” says Patrick Doyle, Western Canada Regional Director at Invensys Process Systems.

The new facility, scheduled for completion next fall, will also include a state-of-the art customer center, complete with meeting spaces, a training facility, and a fully equipped demonstration area, Invensys says. Over the last 18 months, Invensys says it has also doubled its local sales force in the region, as well as more than doubled its local engineering capacity.

In recent months, Invensys says it has successfully implemented the company’s InFusion enterprise control system technology at the Kemess Mine in Smithers, British Columbia, Canada. The company also announced that, in addition to its Foxboro distributed control system already installed at the Husky ethanol refinery in Lloydminster, it is also providing a state-of-the-art Foxboro system for Husky’s new ethanol refinery under construction in Minnedosa, Manitoba, Canada.
