Weber MT opened an office in Laval, Quebec on September 24th to help support its growth and to serve Canadian customers more effectively. The new location will be managed by the Bangor office but will be operated by a new employee, Anne VanDenyssel, who is bilingual and from the Montreal area. The office will be taking care of customer service inquiries, spare parts orders and marketing for Canada.

The Laval office stocks a complete line OEM Weber and other parts and is open from 8 to 4 Monday through Friday. This expansion means that Weber MT customers will be able to avoid delivery delays due to customs and carrier handoffs which lead to downtime of machines. “By establishing an independent Canadian parts depot, Weber MT dealers and customers can receive urgent parts more quickly and minimize downtime,” said Angela Ellingwood, manager of customer service for Weber MT in North America.
