MISSISSAUGA, Ont.—Energy management and automation products maker Schneider Electric has added a new 6,317.4-square-metre production centre to its existing facility in Brossard, Que.
The company said in a release that its Brossard Campus will allow the company to build and assemble end-to-end digitized electrical distribution solutions, provide better order flexibility and reduce lead times.
The building, called 4150 Brossard, encompasses production facilities for eight product lines including station breakers, switchboards, medium voltage and low voltage switchgear. The building also houses local copper and sheet metal fabrication, assembly and testing areas, allowing local customers to test their assembled solutions on-site.
In total, Schneider Electric’s Brossard Campus now covers 15979.3 square metres in three buildings.
“The facility is the only one in North America to house not only manufacturing and testing facilities, but project management, engineering and sales teams,” said Juan Macias, President of Schneider Electric Canada. “It is a truly integrated site, staffed by a highly skilled, multi-lingual workforce, capable of supporting our Canadian customers all the way from the initial quote through to assembly and testing.”
Schneider Electric began operating at its Brossard site in 2010. Products that are now manufactured, assembled, tested and validated at the Brossard Campus include:
- Air-insulated metal-clad switchgear
- Gas-insulated switchgear
- Power-Zone 4 Low Voltage switchgear
- Station breakers
- Securupt Fuses
- Energy Automation Solutions
- MasterClad Arc Resistant (production begins September 2016)
