Rheem Canada’s new headquarters building in Brampton, Ontario, is a 220,000-square-foot, two-story facility housing three business units and a new training center.

BRAMPTON, Ontario - Rheem Canada recently consolidated the physical operations of its three business units - Heating and Cooling, Water Heating, and Swimming Pool Heaters and Boilers marketed under the Rheem, Ruud, Raypak, and WeatherKing labels - into a single headquarters and distribution center in Brampton, Ontario, a Toronto suburb. According to the company, the relocation to the new 220,000-square-foot, two-story facility in the Churchill Business Park is designed to drive higher levels of customer service as well as operational efficiency.

With over 60 employees, Rheem Canada is now responsible for all operations and distribution under the leadership of Dave McPherson, general manager. In addition, the restructuring will set the stage for an enlargement of the HVAC unit, according to Paul Gharghoury, Rheem Canada market manager.

“The HVAC expansion opportunity enables Rheem Canada to hire new employees and help stimulate the local job market,” he said. “The creation of more streamlined business operations enables Rheem Canada to better leverage all three product lines, accelerating order processing and fulfillment, resulting in even greater reliability than ever before. By moving all of our business units under one roof, Rheem customers truly enjoy the unique benefit that only Rheem can provide as the sole manufacturer of heating, cooling, water heating, pool heating, and boiler products.”

Besides having more space for office and warehousing operations, the new building will also feature a 10,000-square-foot training facility. Designed for use by virtually the entire supply chain - wholesalers, contractors, builders, and engineers - the facility will include a 60-person training room, a showroom to display current products, and an engineering lab for hands-on product training and testing.
