Harting’s Roadshow, a mini-tradeshow on wheels, will be visiting customer locations in Alberta and British Columbia next month. The truck will be in British Columbia from May 14-18, then cross over the Rockies to Alberta from May 22-25. Come the summer, the Roadshow also is scheduled to visit locations in Ontario and Quebec in July.
The Roadshow truck features the latest Harting innovations in industrial, small form factor and board-level connectivity, Ethernet switches and RFID. It also features some of the company’s Industry 4.0 innovations like the award-winning MICA edge computer and new smart connectivity modules for the Han-Modular series of industrial connectors.
“Something our customers in Western Canada can look forward to, the road show also will feature our new Han Ex connector series certified for NEC 500 Class 1, Div II environments and our new expanded beam fiber optic cable assemblies – both ideal for use in the oil and gas and mining sectors,” says Carl Maalouf, director of sales for HARTING Canada.
New territory sales manager for Ontario
Harting recently appointed Peter Hanna as its new territory sales manager for Ontario. Leveraging an extensive background in HVAC design and sales, Hanna will seek to help customers adopt the company’s industrial connectivity, edge computing and other advanced solutions. His appointment will be to enhance the firm’s efforts to provide personal support in the country’s largest market at a time when Harting is introducing new technologies for increasing productivity in both conventional and Industry 4.0/IoT production environments.
Hanna earned a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Engineering specializing in solar energy, both from McMaster University in Hamilton, ON., then worked in the HVAC business as a design engineer, direct salesperson, manager of a sales network and as a business development manager. “
