Canadian industrial gasket manufacturer readies for immediate expansion to enhance global services.
Belleville, Ontario Canada – January 25, 2016
Triangle Fluid Controls Ltd., Canada’s leading manufacturer of industrial PTFE and semi-metallic gasketing products announced it would be expanding manufacturing operations at their global headquarters. The company, which provides industrial sealing solutions under its Durlon® brand name to all major industries, has awarded the design-build contract to Belleville-based Bel-Con Design-Builders Ltd.
“We are proud to be expanding again after our original new-build in 2012”, says Vice President & General Manager, Mike Shorts. “We have realized completion of an eight year research and development project which allows us to better compete on a global scale, on price and quality, and expand our existing presence in Asia and other major international markets. Additional manufacturing and testing equipment, along with new factory space to house them, is immediately necessary to allow us to serve our client base more effectively while providing them with an improved ROI. This project will also add new permanent employment positions within the company.”
Triangle Fluid Controls Ltd. has been producing premium grade industrial gaskets and providing complete sealing solutions to its global customer base since inception in 2007. The company worked with Bel-Con Design-Builders in 2012 on a new construction project of their 21,000 square foot global headquarters in Belleville, Ontario. Significant domestic and global growth forced Triangle Fluid to move from their original 9,000 square foot facility to their new building and the same growth has forced another 60% footprint expansion.
Tom Gunsinger, Partner with Bel-Con Design-Builders had this to say, “We are delighted with our relationship with Triangle Fluid Controls and look forward to helping them achieve their global growth targets. We appreciate their confidence in our capabilities and in the building construction brands we represent. This project will be coordinated with several local contractors which is great for our community.”
