We are thrilled to announce a company expansion in Eastern Canada with the opening of a new corporate location in Ontario. Situated at 4390 Corporate Drive in Burlington, our new location includes a 28,000 sq. ft. facility complete with offices and stockyard that is easy to get to from all major highways in the area.
To support this expansion, we are growing the Titan team and are pleased to have welcomed local industry leaders, Wes Anderson and Fraser Robinson, who have joined our existing Ontario team made up of industry veterans John Mooney, Sam Bhat, and Manoj Amuzuri, to head this new operation. Both long-time residents of Burlington, Wes and Fraser are no strangers to geosynthetics and Ontario’s civil construction industry bringing over 40 years of combined experience and a depth of product expertise. Also joining the new Ontario team is Janelle Hébert, who has temporarily relocated to support customer service and day-to-day business operations from our Head Office.
“This is certainly an exciting step for Titan”, says Titan CEO & Co-Founder, Brett Burkard. “We’ve had a client base in Ontario for a few years now in both our Supply Division, supplying material for civil construction projects, and our Construction Division, installing geomembrane for specific lining projects. The decision to shift from a satellite office in Ontario to a boots-on-the-ground, full-service location was made to strengthen our relationships in the region, and better serve our existing clients in Ontario and Eastern Canada as a whole. Wes and Fraser are excellent additions to our solid team, and I look forward to seeing things develop to our full potential in the East.”
The two (Anderson and Robinson) have worked together for over 20 years as colleagues, and as business partners. After years of working in the construction industry, in 2009 their entrepreneurial spirit led them to start A & R Geosynthetics, which they grew from a backyard business to a successful customer-focused company that was acquired by the Hanes Group in 2013. They continued to operate A & R Geosynthetics until late 2016 when Hanes acquired a larger Ontario-based geosynthetics competitor. A & R Geosynthetics was then absorbed by that company, its operations ceased, and the duo joined the newly acquired company in sales roles.
“Titan’s positive and ambitious company culture was clear to us right away. Everyone has been incredibly friendly, helpful, welcoming, and knowledgeable which speaks volumes about the company’s direction,” says Fraser Robinson, Titan’s new Regional Operations Manager in Ontario. “Our client-first attitude, our strong work ethic, and our understanding of the local market complement Titan’s already proven track record. We’re confident that existing and new Titan clients in the East will truly benefit from this new presence in Ontario.”
Our new Regional Manager for Ontario, Wes Anderson, echoes Robinson’s comments and adds, “We have product stock that is consistent with other Titan locations, in addition to some drainage products more common to the Eastern market to meet local needs. We’re open for business and ready to serve!”
