June 13, 2019 – Syntronic has just celebrated five-years in Canada. Syntronic celebrated this significant milestone with its customers, employees, and partners at its offices in Kanata, Ontario.
Syntronic is a global engineering design house founded in 1983 in Sweden. In Kanata, Syntronic has grown to almost 300 employees since opening in 2014.
Jimmy Kelland, Syntronic Business Development Manager and Master of Ceremonies at the celebration, re-introduced City of Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson whom he also had the pleasure of introducing at the grand opening 5 years earlier.
Watson and Kanata North City Councillor Jenna Sudds presented Hans Molin, President, Syntronic Canada, and Darrell Wellington, Senior Vice President with a certificate of achievement. Syntronic Global President and CEO Björn Jansson spoke to the reasons why Ottawa was the chosen site for Syntronic to set-up shop in North America – proximity to many existing global and potential customers and its strong tech talent pool. Urban Ahlin, Sweden’s Ambassador to Canada, delighted guests with a discussion on the very close relationship and synergies between the two countries, especially when it comes to its business communities and passion for technical knowledge and product development. Karen McCrimmon, MP for Kanata-Carleton was also on-hand to congratulate the team on the incredible growth and plans for the future.
The event focused on “Innovation and Partnership” with impressive displays by Syntronic and local/global partners, including BlackBerry QNX, SiLabs, Keysight Technologies, Intellisports, Logan Katz, Cresa, ProCorp Financial and Invest Ottawa.
