Danfoss hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for its new Canadian office and training center in Oakville, Ontario.
The office officially opened in December 2020; the event was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The office employs 36 people in the three business segments: Danfoss Climate Solutions, Danfoss Drives and Danfoss Power Solutions. In addition to the offices, the office houses a training center as well as meeting and event space for customers and distributors.
Hosted by John Galyen, President, Danfoss North America, and Randy Ross, Director of Human Resources and Site Manager, special guests included Hanne Fugl Eskjær, Ambassador of Denmark; Jeppe Fredslund, Consul General Toronto; Frank Hansen, Chicago Consul General (and former Danfoss employee); Mae Scatliff, from the office of MPP Stephen Crawford; Mayor of Oakville, Rob Burton, clients and employees.
“Around the world,” said John Galyen, president of Danfoss North America, “Our sustainable and smart technologies power industries and cities, ensure a reliable food supply and create healthier and more comfortable indoor climates. At the same time, we are developing solutions integrating renewable energies into the smart energy systems of tomorrow. This office provides a home for all three business segments, allowing our colleagues greater interaction with each other and facilitating an open and collaborative environment that can strengthen our leadership position in the green transition.
