Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has selected the Greater Toronto Area for the site of its new Canadian headquarters. The interior of the new 15,000-square-foot facility is currently under construction and will house up to 100 employees. The project is slated for completion in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The location of the new headquarters will allow Hexagon to better serve its Canadian customer base, expand into new markets and attract talent in the Toronto area — the second largest financial center in North America and home to 40% of Canada's business headquarters.

Hexagon will consolidate all its Manufacturing Intelligence businesses in eastern Canada into this central location, which includes headquarters for Forming Technologies’ development, sales and engineering, MSC Software, and teams from Hexagon’s production software and metrology solutions portfolios. 

“We are excited to announce our new headquarters in Canada which solidifies our strong commitment to Canadian manufacturers from coast to coast,” says Michael Gallagher, president and CEO of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Canada Ltd. “We have incorporated a large showroom to feature metrology scanners as well as an Autonomous Driving Simulation workstation.”
