This year marks the 40th anniversary of Weidmuller’s operations in North America, which includes corporate headquarters in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Weidmuller’s North American headquarters, located in Richmond, Va., commemorated their anniversary year with a 20,000-square-foot expansion to their U.S. facility. The added space includes offices for the customer/technical support organization, product management and the value-added services group. It also features a new CustomerInnovationCenter ─ a training facility with high tech multi-media displays. The addition of 15,000 square feet for service and production gives Weidmuller the capacity to build customer solutions and provide value-added services to a growing customer base.

Weidmuller’s Canada location has grown over the past 40 years from a two-person operation to more than 45 direct employees and 25 field representatives. According to Weidmuller, this year, growth in Canada has continued with a 30% expansion in warehouse and assembly workstation space in the National Headquarters in Markham, Ontario.

“This expansion increased Weidmuller’s footprint of office space by over a third, allowing us to grow our employee base and accommodate the heightened business growth of the North America operation,” said Bruce Hofmann, director of marketing and business development. “The investments in both facilities will enable us to deliver better service to our channel partners and customers, both today and into the future.”
