The Harting Technology Group in North America has established Harting Canada, Inc. in Saint Laurent, QC.
By establishing this direct presence in the Canadian market, Harting recognizes the importance of its Canadian customers and assumes a larger role in helping them maximize their competitiveness.

The announcement coincides with the 25th anniversary of Harting in the U.S. As a pioneer in the industrial connectivity markets, the Germany-based, privately-owned Harting has historically focused on building strong relationships with its customers and while developing its connection technologies. 

“Now that we have boots on the ground (in Canada),” said Rolf Meyer, president and CEO of Harting, Inc. of North America, “we want to persuade the Canadian market to see Harting in a different light – not only as a leading innovator and brand, but also as a local partner that delivers the best value proposition: quality, price, reliability and longevity.”

Harting has also announced the appointment of industry veteran Claude Gravel as Canadian sales manager. In the past, Gravel has led sales efforts with AMP/Tyco, Molex and Edac.

The HARTING Technology Group, privately owned and based in Germany, employs over 3,300 people globally across its 36 subsidiaries. With production facilities in Europe, Asia and the United States, the HARTING portfolio of connectivity solutions focus on multiple levels from the machine to the device and into the communication infrastructure. The U.S. plant in Elgin, Illinois is of one of three HARTING locations that manufactures the HIS product line and custom cable assemblies. The company's core business is intelligent and high-performance connection technology. HARTING works in almost all industrial markets with a focus on requirements for robust, reliable connectivity solutions. HARTING has Market Application Managers for the following markets Automation and Machinery, Alternative Energy and Distribution, Transportation, Industrial Devices, Broadcast, Stage Automation, Medical, Embedded Computer Systems and Telecommunications.
