As demand for food safety increases globally, Detectamet is now expanding into Canada.
“After four successful years in the US, operating out of Richmond, VA, we have identified Canada as the next phase in our global expansion plan,” says Helen Morrison, group managing director.
“Canadian sales have grown to account for a significant contribution of the US turnover, and with a heavy food manufacturing presence in Canada, it makes sense to open a site there, so we can service the market more effectively.
“This will also allow our US side to concentrate on growth in their core market, allowing for a more efficient sales and supply chain for the rest of the North, Central and Southern American continents.”
Leo Wild is Detectamet Canada’s sales manager and having previously worked at their head office in the UK he has plenty of experience in the food safety industry.
“Food safety is of global paramount importance and we continue to educate the food industry in how to avoid unnecessary foreign body contamination risks,” says Leo.
“All our products are developed with this in mind, and we offer a wide range of detectable products for use in food processing environments, from stationery through to handling equipment, knives, PPE and engineering products. Our customers know we are the one-stop shop for detectable products.”
Detectamet’s sales and distribution centre, based in Ottawa, will open its doors on 1st April and you’ll be able to meet up with Detectamet Inc at Food Safety Toronto on 2nd and 3rd April, and SIAL Canada, in Toronto, 30th April – 2nd May.
