Effective September 1st, 2021, Everest Automation and Sylvan Automation Ltd have combined forces and will now form one unified company to better serve their mutual customer base through four offices in Ontario: Oakville, Sarnia, Sault Ste. Marie, and Sudbury.
This strategic investment allows a combined Everest and Sylvan to expand their ample suite of products and services to better face the challenges of market globalization, manpower scarcity, and the growing needs of our industries to have partners with more competencies, products, expertise, and services to support them.
Everest and Sylvan's mutual history began in early 2000 when they were given the opportunity to represent a leader in control and automated valves, Neles (Jamesbury). Both companies experienced notable growth over the years and have evolved into major players as complete instrumentation and control valve representatives serving their respective markets of Ontario (Sylvan), and Quebec along with Atlantic Canada (Everest).
Effective September 10th Everest Automation has been appointed as the exclusive ABB representative for its full instrumentation portfolio, covering industrial and municipal customers across all of Ontario. This offering is added to ABB's Process Analytical product line which Everest has proudly represented in this area since 2018.
The addition of ABB Instrumentation to our combined Ontario offering will enable Everest Automation to satisfy the majority of instrumentation and control requirements in the region. With this newly extended ABB relationship, customers will benefit from expanded coverage, stronger technical expertise, and deeper resources. We believe that this level of support and knowhow is unmatched today in the province of Ontario.
How does this acquisition benefit customers of both companies?
Management and staff of both organizations are thrilled about this new entity and the unification of experienced, competent individuals to create an undeniable team synergy. This very combination of strengthened knowledge and resources will leverage the best solutions of both companies to capitalize on delivering a higher level of service to the industrial automation market.
Sylvan's facilities in Oakville, Sarnia and Sault Ste. Marie each offer sales support, valve automation, local inventory, in-house and on-site services. When combined with Everest's office in Sudbury and 5 offices in Quebec and Atlantic Canada, this merged entity is in a unique position to locally serve their customers with a homogeneous offering, and certainly the most skilled technical group in the country.
For Sylvan Automation customers, their experience regarding quality, service, expertise and strong product offering will continue with enhancements, while gaining access to added automation products now available from a single source. For Everest Automation customers, the benefits will be identical.
Rest assured, we will continue to serve you, our customers, in a combined spirit of partnership and long-term relationships, which are values shared by both Everest and Sylvan. These fundamental values are what led us to success at the onset and will also ensure our continued success well into the future.
Until further notice, you can continue to work through Sylvan Automation Ltd. or Everest Automation Inc. The migration to Everest Automation will take place gradually to ensure a smooth transition for customers. We will keep you informed of the exciting changes to come.
