“With their advanced knowledge of the southwestern Ontario market and go-to-market strategy, we regard Electrozad and Festo working together as a great partnership with enormous potential,” says Jack Cabral, Festo Canada’s sales manager for Central Canada. “There is a solid foundation in the region on which to build – including great customer familiarity with the Festo brand. We are really looking forward to growing together with Electrozad in the coming years!”
