Reimagining Motion

PLYMOUTH, MI, 7 February 2023 – AVL is pleased to announce it is expanding its Canadian footprint beyond British Columbia and into the two R&D clusters of Montreal and the Toronto-Windsor corridor. As part of its expansion, AVL is dedicating technical support and business development expertise that will be based in Canada.

These resources will complement the existing research team that continues to develop and deliver cutting-edge fuel cell technology. Since 2018, AVL has operated in Burnaby, British Columbia, to advance fuel cell research, testing, and development. This region is home to AVL Fuel Cell Canada, and hydrogen fuel cell test system leader and AVL partner, Greenlight Innovation Corp.

“We’re excited to extend AVL’s existing offerings in the Canadian market. Now, customers will have the resources to leverage not only AVL’s fuel cell expertise, but also our emissions and electrification testing solutions,” commented Joseph Strelow, President of AVL Test Systems.

“Our goal is to stay close to our customers to support their efforts to develop sustainable mobility. We not only see Canada as a rapidly evolving mobility market, but also a rich source of top-notch engineering talent from Canadian Universities. Therefore, it is only fitting for AVL to increase its investment in the Canadian market and our growing customer base.”

Canada’s automotive industry has traditionally focused on vehicle production, with seven final assembly plants producing 1.4 million vehicles annually. Canada is also home to several Tier 1 global automotive suppliers.

In recent years, Canada’s automotive focus has expanded to include multiple R&D centers for battery electric vehicle and electrified powertrain development in industry and university settings. AVL projects this trend to continue and has directed additional resources and attention to support Canada’s R&D sector.
