Festo Canada is pleased to announce Electrozad, the largest independently owned electrical distributor in southwestern Ontario, as its full-line exclusive sales, support and service partner covering the region from London to Windsor and Sarnia. 

Electrozad is featuring Festo’s pneumatic, electrical and process automation products, including the always-in-stock Core Product Range of drives, cylinders, valves, tubing, fittings and much more.

"The Festo line of products fills an important need for Electrozad in further extending our ability to provide complete automation solutions for our customers,” says William Smith, President, Electrozad. “Festo is a Rockwell Automation encompass partner which compliments the latter’s flagship Allen-Bradley brand in Electrozad’s trading area. We look forward to the value this Festo partnership will bring to our customers when combined with the service and technical expertise they expect from Electrozad.”

“By leveraging Festo expertise, Electrozad is better equipped to deliver end to end client solutions, positioning customers towards the future of manufacturing.”

All five Electrozad offices will have full-line stock of Festo components for overnight or even same-day delivery, which is key for supporting automation systems in the region’s growth markets, like automotive parts manufacturing, greenhouse production as well as local process industries like petrochemical and pharmaceuticals.

Electrozad has 65 years of experience in the area, and like Festo, has a wealth of customer relationships there that both sides can leverage. It prides itself on employing specialists with expertise in controls and HMI, power and motion, sensors and more.

“With their advanced knowledge of the southwestern Ontario market and go-to-market strategy, we regard Electrozad and Festo working together as a great partnership with enormous potential,” says Jack Cabral, Festo Canada’s sales manager for Central Canada. “There is a solid foundation in the region on which to build – including great customer familiarity with the Festo brand. We are really looking forward to growing together with Electrozad in the coming years!”

A Smoother Way to Manage Part Programs in the Digital Age

From the first computers’ punch cards to today’s programming languages, a single, minor error can mean the difference between a functional program and a crashed computer. And when a buggy program is run on a CNC machine tool, it likely won’t just be the computer that crashes.

In the decades since manufacturing entered the digital age, OEMs like Mazak continue to develop a comprehensive range of solutions to simplify programming, including MAZATROL conversational programming.
