SGS Multi-lab in Vancouver has Moved into New 68,000 Square Foot Premises
SGS Canada Inc. is pleased to announce the expansion and integration of its services for the minerals, agriculture and environmental client groups in Vancouver with our move to a new, state-of-the-art facility located in Burnaby, a city in the greater Vancouver area. The multilab facility will provide the increased capability and capacity required to meet our customers’ growing needs. The lab is well situated to serve both the vibrant industrial growth that arises in Vancouver, a key city in the mineral exploration market and the Port of Vancouver, which is a major entrance point for imported food from Asia to Canada.
This move will enhance SGS’ competitive advantage through cross business initiatives. Our experts can now easily discuss any crossover requirements your projects may have between the business areas. The new facility will also play a critical role in supporting our 2014 growth targets.
Our current offices, located at Kent Avenue, Sherbrooke Street, Byrne Road and Antrim Avenue, will be fully operational at our new location, 3260 Production Way, by the end of Dec 2012. SGS’ Powell Street, 76th Street and Eastlake Drive locations will not be moving.
The new laboratory in Vancouver functions as a central hub in SGS’ global network of facilities. It offers a comprehensive suite of integrated services that carry the reputation for excellence that SGS in Vancouver has achieved through the knowledge and technical developments implemented by the local teams. SGS has made further advancement possible by investing $12 million in the construction of leading edge infrastructure and the expertise necessary to conduct our testing, inspection and verification business as well as to increase our processing volumes.
The new facility covers 68,000 square feet in area, has more than 170 employees, including engineers, chemists, technicians and inspectors and will produce hundreds of thousands of determinations annually. This new platform will enable us to achieve the growth and productivity needed to meet the requirements of our customers, further streamline routine analysis and to gain from the benefits of having a team of specialists from a variety of disciplines working together to progress your project efficiently.
SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. SGS is recognised as the global benchmark for quality and integrity. With more than 70'000 employees, SGS operates a network of over 1'350 offices and laboratories around the world.
