Westinghouse says expanded office space in Burlington will contribute to job creation supporting Canada’s nuclear sector.

The American manufacturing giant says the new space will allow several departments to operate under one roof and allow workers flexible hours while providing a collaborative environment for ongoing services provided for CANDU nuclear reactors and other projects.

Located at Norjohn Court, the new space will be used to work on and test products used for existing and future reactors.

Radioactive material is not handled at the Burlington site.

“We are excited to advance Westinghouse’s growth in Canada across multiple fronts,” remarked Eddie Saab, President of Westinghouse Canada. “This is the first of two planned expansions in Canada this year as we look forward to our state-of-the-art engineering hub in Kitchener opening in May in support of our projects in Canada and globally.”

Westinghouse was established in 1886 and has been a major global producer of household appliances and electrical services that power industry. The company has since branched out to provide services to the nuclear industry and even the ownership of television networks.
