Sales, service define MAG Canada's role.

MAG Industrial Automation Systems, Sterling Heights, MI, has formed MAG Canada, a sales and service organization that will expand the countrywide support of machine tools, systems, and services from MAG IAS companies, including MAG Boehringer, MAG Cincinnati, MAG Fadal, MAG Giddings & Lewis, MAG Hessapp, MAG Maintenance Technologies, MAG Powertrain, MAG Turmatic Systems, and MAG Cincinnati Automation.

MAG Canada combines a long-established Canadian machine tool firm, UBJ-Boehringer Inc., with an existing local factory-service organization.

UBJ-Boehringer brings 62 years of Canadian manufacturing experience and resources to the new organization. The move is seen as part of a long-term commitment by MAG-IAS to Canada's durable goods manufacturing sector. Headquarters for MAG Canada is a 13,000-sq-ft, full-service facility in Mississauga, Ont. In addition, a fully-staffed sales/service facility is located in St. Laurent, Quebec.

MAG Canada has been transitioning into responsibility for Boehringer, Cincinnati Machine (excluding FTV, CFV, VCNC, and HTC series machines), Fadal, Giddings & Lewis, Hessapp, MAG Powertrain, Turmatic Systems, and Cincinnati Automation products in Canada.

The size and scope of MAG Maintenance Technologies, the MAG-IAS service and support organization, is another asset to MAG Canada and its local professionals. Parts stocked in Canada are part of an $80 million global inventory maintained by Maintenance Technologies.

"We are now able to better serve the needs of key Canadian durable goods manufacturing sectors, including the aerospace, automotive, die/mold, recreational vehicle, conventional and alternative energy, and contract machining industries," says Juergen Moeglich, president, MAG Canada.

MAG-IAS has revenues of approximately $1.5 billion and employs nearly 4,500 worldwide. MAG-IAS, www.
