Attendees were given the opportunity to meet with experts in these fields to discuss their unique applications one on one.
First established in 1991 and representing one of six locations in North America for Schleuniger today, the Oakville facility is focused on providing high-quality service to its Canadian and northern New York State customers, according to Harry Coates, Canadian regional sales manager.
“We sell innovative solutions for all wire processing applications, including machines that do everything from measure, cut and strip, to mark and connectorize,” says Coates, who was directly responsible for establishing the firm’s Canadian office. “Our main responsibility in the Canadian office is to service our customer’s directly with the delivery of parts and factory trained service.”
The new office features a showroom, designed to help demonstrate the firm’s cable stripping and crimping equipment. Schleuniger’s machines can process a wide range of cables, from 44-guage microwire up to 600mcm (1.5-inch). The firm’s machines deliver short setup times, high flexibility, networkable software and intuitive operation, complementing a wide range of accessories.
