Delcam welcomes Canadian High Commissioner to Birmingham
Delcam hosted a visit to its Birmingham headquarters by the Canadian High Commissioner, Gordon Campbell, on 17th January. The visit was part of a tour of companies and local government offices in the West Midlands aimed at strengthening business links between the region and Canada.
Delcam was chosen to be part of the tour because of its long history of supplying its CADCAM software to manufacturing companies in Canada. After selling through resellers for a number of years, the company opened its first office in North America in Windsor, Ontario, the centre of the country’s toolmaking industry, in 1996. It now employs 16 staff in offices in Windsor and Toronto. Together with reseller, Les Technologies, that covers sales in the French-speaking region of Canada, Delcam Canada supports around 1,500 customers, ranging from internationally-known names to small subcontractors and toolmaking companies.
After the visit, High Commissioner Gordon Campbell said, "I’m delighted to be able to visit Delcam, a company that has operated in Canada for more than twenty years. The success that the company has experienced is a great example of the opportunities that exist for Canada-UK partnerships. Our countries have a strong commercial relationship, which has the potential to spur new growth, jobs and improved economic prosperity on both sides of the Atlantic.”
Delcam’s Chief Executive, Clive Martell, responded, "We were extremely pleased to welcome Mr Campbell to Delcam. The visit is particularly timely as we enjoyed a very successful year in Canada during 2012, with our sales increasing by more than 50% over 2011.”
