Brant County, Ont. — Tulsar Canada, an engineer and manufacturer of water and wastewater pump control panels, is eyeing aggressive and ambitious expansion in its new facilities in Brant County.
Recently settled into a 135,000-square-foot facility in Cainsville in the industrial area just east of Brantford, Ont., Tulsar Canada is hoping to quadruple both its production and its workforce, adding up to 150 new jobs to the area. There are currently 50 people working in engineering, customer service, marketing, administration, manufacturing and quality control at Tulsar, the company said in a news release.
“We are excited about our future in this community,” George Micevski, president of Tulsar Canada, said at the ribbon cutting ceremony that officially opened the new location. “It is in a great location between Buffalo, Toronto and Detroit, has an economy that is growing and a healthy industrial sector – a quick drive along Highway 403 to see some of the brands with a Brant address is testament to that.”
Tulsar Canada, a division of the Louisville, Ky.,-based Zoeller Corporation, is an engineer and manufacturer of water and wastewater pump control panels that are custom designed and built in Canada to the specifications of its clients.
Micevski was joined at the ribbon-cutting by Zoeller Corporation chief executive John Zoeller, Brant MPP and Speaker of the House Dave Levac, Brant MP Phil McColeman and Brant County Mayor Ron Eddy.
“We are very optimistic coming to this community and opportunities we have,” said Zoeller. “We have some big growth plans for this operation. We appreciate all of the work our employees have done to get us to where we are here today.”
Founded more than 36 years ago in Kitchener, Ont., Tulsar’s products range from the Sentry – a Wi-Fi-enabled residential high water alarm – to engineered custom water and wastewater control panels for industrial, commercial, recreational and municipal clients.
Former owner Bob Erwin, who built up the company over 30 years, was present for the handover. “It’s good to see the company grow,” Erwin told Ground Water Canada after the ceremony.
Zoeller Canada, the distribution arm of Zoeller Corporation, will also be housed under the same roof in Brant. Zoeller Canada supports its pump customers with engineered water solutions for the same customers and industries.
