Winterthur-The Kistler Group, a global leader in dynamic measurement technology, is delighted to announce the opening of its new sales center in Mississauga, Canada, which took place February 19, 2019. The Kistler Canada office represents a significant expansion of the Company’s global presence, since it is its first official location, and solidifies the Company’s strong commitment to its customers in that region.

Kistler Canada, which was incorporated into the Kistler Group in September 2018, is located in Mississauga, Ontario. The new location serves to advise and support customers as well as manage sales in Canada.

Supporting Canada’s automotive and aerospace industries
The expansion reinforces Kistler’s commitment to grow operations with customers’ increasing demands.  Kistler will support the automotive sector, which is highly dependent on assembly, joining and forming processes, through in-depth expertise and introducing innovative products. The highly cost-effective NCFE, for example, which belongs to the family of electromechanical joining systems, helps customers boost productivity, while improving product quality and resource efficiency.

Global leaders in the aircraft manufacturing industry as well as in the Weigh In Motion businesses located in Canada have already partnered with Kistler. The measurement expert will provide valuable aircraft and space testing expertise and additional services. As a full measuring chain supplier, Kistler offers signal conditioning, data acquisition and engineering know-how to its wide portfolio of sensors.

Investing in the region
The investment will have long-term benefits, not only for Kistler to achieve increased business opportunities, but also for the economic development of the Mississauga region. “Mississauga welcomes Kistler Canada, a leading-edge technology company that will serve Mississauga’s robust advanced manufacturing sector, which includes automotive, aerospace and other technologies,” said Bonnie Brown, Director of Economic Development, City of Mississauga.  “Companies like Kistler are an essential part of Mississauga’s thriving innovation eco system that is well connected and supportive of emerging trends that require Industry 4.0 and other advanced technologies in the workplace.”
