Canadian Electrical Wholesaler

HubbellDecember 1, 2017

The final phase of the stepped plan to bring Hubbell Canada LP and Burndy Canada Inc. together as one legal entity is complete. The merged legal entity will be known as Hubbell Canada ULC. The plan is to market the merged organization as simply Hubbell Canada.

In a significant parallel initiative, the two organizations have successfully merged their SAP operating systems into one common SAP enterprise system for Canada thanks to a very strong collaborative effort by a committed local team and skilled Hubbell employees from across the organization over the last 11 months.

These two accomplishments are significant in that the unified organization is now well positioned to offer customers an ease of doing business across many brands, many markets and many products. Hubbell Canada partners may now enjoy the benefits of reduced transaction cost with an ability to place any product on a single order, receive one shipment and one invoice.

The Burndy Canada Inc. organization was welcomed into the Hubbell Canada facility in Pickering ON in late 2015. Together, these premier businesses are organized internally to assure that the high level of service that customers have enjoyed in the past continues to be a competitive advantage. “The combined businesses and our most valuable asset, our people, are under one roof, operating under one system and one set of policies and procedures to make dealing with the new Hubbell Canada easier than ever.” Says Kevin Mallory, Vice President and General Manager, Hubbell Canada. Manufacturing locations in Montreal QC and Orillia ON will continue to operate as they have in the past.

Mallory adds “This investment is a strong affirmation of our domestic commitment to serve our Canadian partners with dedicated resources, people and infrastructure. Additionally, we are now in a strong position to service all of the premier brands in our product portfolio through one organization.”

Q4 GDPGrowth in real gross domestic product (GDP) slowed to 0.1% in the fourth quarter, owing to a decrease in business investment and weak international trade. These declines were offset by increased household spending. Final domestic demand edged up 0.2%, after rising 0.8% in the third quarter.

The annual growth rate of Canada's real GDP was 1.6% for 2019, a deceleration from the 2.0% growth in 2018. By comparison, real GDP in the United States increased 2.3%.

Éric DeschênesLine Goyette

A new figure at the head of the electrification business unit and ABB Canada, Éric Deschênes is not a newcomer to the electrical industry. A long journey that we have already highlighted by emphasizing his passion for finding practical solutions that optimize the adoption of technologies. We met with him recently to discuss his new leadership role at ABB Canada and his projects. First, he would like to point out that recent changes to ABB Canada’s structure, as elsewhere in the world, have been made to decomplex the customer relationship. “The corporate matrix has been lightened to get closer to the customer,” says Éric.
