September 15, 2022
In a new partnership taking effect this month, Groupe EP has entered a distribution agreement to sell and support Festo Canada’s complete portfolio of pneumatic, electric and process automation products throughout Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces.
Groupe EP is headquartered in Quebec City and has five locations. Over the years, it has diversified to serve a wide range of industries and provide design, installation, commissioning, repairs, upgrades and training services.
“We have long experience with pneumatics and it’s also exciting to expand our reach with Festo’s electric and process automation product families,” says Sylvain Coulombe, Groupe EP’s director of pneumatic. “With multiple technologies at our disposal, we can offer the one that best suits each customer’s applications.”
“With its focus on growth, strong technical bias for automation and reputation for providing value-added sales and support, Groupe EP is a particularly good representation of what we are looking for in a distributor,” says Chris Hemming, channel sales manager for Festo Canada. “Our customers can rely on Groupe EP for services such as vendor-managed inventory programs, air preparation assembly and valve configuration assembly programs.”
