Phoenix Contact celebrates 40 years in Canada at its Milton, ON, headquarters. The company is also marking its 100th anniversary globally.

Phoenix Contact has reached its 40th anniversary of operations in Canada. Over the years, the 100-year-old company has made advances in electrical connection technology, automation solutions, and networking solutions.

Since its establishment in 1983, when a small sales office was opened on Matheson Drive, Mississauga, Phoenix Contact has grown its presence in the Canadian market. It has now opened its official Canadian headquarters in Milton, ON, equipped with training, proof of concept showroom and value-add centre. The business has also opened an Eastern Region Technology Centre in Quebec, a Western Regional Technology Centre in Calgary, and a sales office in British Columbia.

“Our 40-year journey in Canada has been nothing short of extraordinary,” said Roger Hallett, president of Phoenix Contact Canada. “From humble beginnings as a small sales office to establishing our headquarters, we have continually strived to bring the best electrification, networking, and automation solutions to our Canadian customers.

“We owe our success to our talented team, valued customers, and supportive partners who have been integral to our growth.”

Today, Phoenix Contact employs around 22,000 people and generated revenues of €3.6 billion in 2022. “In recent years in particular, we have experienced especially dynamic growth, which shows us that we can provide answers to the key questions of our times with our solutions,” stated CEO Frank Stührenberg as he assessed the revenue growth.

Worldwide, Phoenix Contact manufactures in a production network spanning 11 countries in which the level of vertical integration varies. More than 50 international subsidiaries are part of the Phoenix Contact Group. In this way, the company is always close to the markets and customers.

Together with customers and partners, Phoenix Contact develops solutions for the world of tomorrow using pioneering connection and automation technology, the company says. The integrated concepts, which include engineering and services, are applied in transportation infrastructure, e-mobility, for clean water, renewable energy, and intelligent supply networks, and in energy-efficient machine building and systems manufacturing.
