Anderson Water Systems, a subsidiary of Degrémont Technologies, celebrated the opening of its new Ancaster, Ontario facility this morning.
Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Employment for Ontario, announced a $300,000 government grant to help Anderson create 50 new full-time jobs. The company, which specializes in industrial water treatment systems, has established a global technical competence centre for ion exchange. The new centre will be the design and manufacturing hub for the Degrémont ion exchange system.
The centre will also provide support for sales teams around the world and keep staff apprised of the latest technological and R&D developments to ensure global competitiveness.
Hamilton Mayor Bob Bratina said the new facility is part of the region’s renaissance. “This is not the old Hamilton,” he said.
