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.
