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.
