Sudbury-based Norguard Industries, a supplier of fall protection equipment for the mining industry, has partnered with Pacesetter Sales & Associates, a safety and industrial specialist, to expand its Canadian sales.
Norguard said it has experienced double-digit growth in the last year.
Its partnership with Pacesetter will help grow those sales even more, it said.
“I am extremely pleased to partner with Pacesetter Sales & Associates,” said Norguard president Phil Williams. “The addition of this highly respected and knowledgeable firm to the Norguard/Guardian family is an important step in furthering our mission of offering innovative fall protection solutions to the Canadian community in order to help save lives.”
Norguard Industries was founded in 1989.
In 2013, the company expanded its Sudbury operation, increasing manufacturing capacity, and employment. Around 70 per cent of Norguard's fall protection products are manufactured in Canada.
