    Major office development continued into the third quarter of 2019 with Samuel, Son & Co.’s new Oakville head office location, the largest commercial project of the quarter.

    The company’s brand new 55,000 sq. ft. two-storey office building is located in Carttera’s Oakwoods Business Park and will target LEED principles. The new location is the company’s second investment in the community, the first being the opening of Burloak Technologies Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence which opened in 2018 and recently underwent an expansion.

    Invest in Ontario Spotlight: Pelmorex Corp.

    Tuesday, October 8, 2019

    “We work really hard to replicate everything from an algorithmic perspective, but the reality is – there is a human element, that goes beyond what the computer does today,” says Rory Capern, VP Partnerships for Pelmorex.

    Pelmorex’s human element consists of 40 meteorologists in its Oakville headquarters who study Canadian weather exclusively all day long. While industry giants like IBM and AccuWeather provide their services to locations all over the world, they don’t use local, on-the-ground talent to do it – something Capern believes distinguishes Pelmorex from its competitors.
