Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence Building New Canadian Headquarters

New facility in Toronto area will showcase multiple Hexagon product lines

Published: Thursday, November 7, 2019 - 23:11

(Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence: North Kingstown, RI) -- Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division recently announced the selection of the greater Toronto area for the site of its new Canadian headquarters. The interior of the new 15,000 sq ft facility is currently under construction and will house up to 100 employees. The project is slated for completion before the end of 2019.

The workplace configuration accommodates a state-of-the-art training center, multiple meeting rooms, and offices for Hexagon teams in product development, quality assurance, sales, engineering, customer support, and administration. The facility will also include a product showroom serving as a focal point for Hexagon’s most innovative metrology and manufacturing technologies. The location of the new headquarters will allow Hexagon to better serve its Canadian customer base, expand into new markets, and attract world-class talent in the Toronto area, which is the second-largest financial center in North America and home to 40 percent of Canada’s business headquarters.

Hexagon’s investment in the new Center of Excellence confirms its strong commitment to advanced manufacturing in Canada. Hexagon will consolidate all its Manufacturing Intelligence businesses in eastern Canada into this central location, which includes headquarters for Forming Technologies’ development, sales and engineering, MSC Software, and teams from Hexagon’s production software and metrology solutions portfolios. In 2018, the company also opened a large regional office called the Hexagon Calgary Campus in Calgary, Alberta, which serves as the head office for multiple Hexagon divisions in western Canada.

The Ontario office area will feature 18 ft ceilings, glass walls, and windows with exceptional views of key areas, all designed in Hexagon’s style themes, colors, and company design elements. The floor plan is focused on the employee experience with contemporary design essentials such as common open spaces, huddle areas, and various employee amenities such as tea, coffee, healthy snacks, kitchen, games area, and proximity to shopping, restaurants, and theaters. The office architecture and furniture will foster an environment that empowers teamwork, problem solving, and a high level of productivity among formerly separate areas of the business.

“We are excited to announce our new headquarters in Canada, which solidifies our strong commitment to Canadian manufacturers from coast to coast,” states Michael Gallagher, president and CEO, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Canada Limited. “We will offer world-class support for our design and engineering, production, and metrology product portfolios, including FTI, PC-DMIS, EDGECAM, and Simufact. We will also continue to offer expert-level support and training courses for a variety of in-demand technologies such as scanning and integrated solutions for the Smart Factory, along with FTI’s industry-standard stamping courses. We have also incorporated a large showroom to feature metrology scanners as well as an Autonomous Driving Simulation workstation.”
