TORONTO — UL officially marks its 100th anniversary in Canada this year.

“For the past 100 years, UL has helped advance the possibilities of today while safeguarding the unknowns of tomorrow,” said Joseph Hosey, country manager for UL in Canada, in a prepared statement. “As our customers have innovated to succeed in their own industries, we too have innovated our proven scientific processes and solutions to drive positive changes.”

Over the past year, facing challenges brought on by COVID-19, UL shifted key parts of its business to a virtual model, including remote inspections, audits and witness testing, to compensate for modified working arrangements in order to keep its employees as well as its customers safe.

“We swiftly mobilized our resources to support customers during this challenging time. It’s less invasive to our customers’ operations, and we can still deliver best-in-class services to our customers regardless where they are,” Hosey said.


As UL focuses on the next 100 years, the company said in a statement that it looks to continue to help support customer growth by partnering with innovators in Canada to discover new possibilities and deliver safety, security and sustainability.

“Canada has a lot to be proud of, now and in the future,” said Sajeev Jesudas, international president, UL. “UL is committed to its customers, and we’re here to help with challenges big or small. Whether it’s research and development, manufacturing automation or supply chain complexity, our customers can draw from the knowledge of our highly competent local teams.”
