Historical Stock Chart
1 Year : From May 2012 to May 2013
GE Energy’s (NYSE: GE) Industrial Solutions business celebrates the
five-year anniversary this month of its Canadian Assembly Centre,
exemplifying the company’s commitment to providing timelier,
cost-effective service to its customers operating in Canada. The centre,
which offers a wide range of electrical distribution product
panelboards—is centrally located in Mississauga, Ontario, and is
designed to meet the unique needs of Canada’s customers, particularly
those in the commercial construction industry.
For example, GE’s team at its Canadian Assembly Centre was integral to
the overall success of the $200 million redesign of the EPCOR
Tower in Edmonton, Alberta. EPCOR is a supplier of water and
wastewater services in Edmonton and other communities and also an
electrical-transmission and distribution utility. EPCOR’s 28-story tower
is the first high-rise office tower built in the Alberta capital in more
than two decades. With its strong commitment to sustainability, EPCOR
insisted that its new Edmonton headquarters should meet LEED (Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver accreditation standards. GE’s
Canadian Assembly Centre team partnered with MCL Power to design a
customized medium-voltage and low-voltage solution that provided
complete selectivity and reduced arc flash incident energy at the same
time. This solution enhanced the distribution system's performance and
“The Canadian Assembly Centre acts as the perfect conduit to quickly
transform customer product requirements and feedback into real-world
product solutions for the construction, commercial, institutional and
industrial markets in Canada,” said Rick Attwood, facility manager of
the Canadian Assembly Centre. “We’re committed to serving Canadian
customers with localized expertise and greater flexibility and will
continue to bring job creation and high-tech training opportunities to
the next generation of Canadians.”
Designed exclusively for the Canadian electrical customer, the Assembly
Centre offers key product and service benefits, including:
Faster product and service lead times.
Dedicated customer service.
Customized product and service solutions.
Solutions for all Canadian provinces and electrical markets.
