Farsound has signed a lease on a close to 20,000sq ft facility in Toronto, Canada.

    It means the MRO company will upgrade its presence in the city and in the Americas as it moves on from its existing, smaller facility.

    The lease will start in the fourth quarter of 2021. Farsound said the new facility was nearer to the airport, has more public transport accessibility, is closer access to ancillary operations, and is better purposed to meet the company’s corporate and environmental objectives.

    “After spending close to thirty years in our current facility with expansions that were not really fit for purpose, this new facility is a much better fit for us, both in terms of layout and scale,” said Farsound president Curtis Pump.

    “It will help provide a breath of fresh air and invigorate our team, which is an added bonus given the current global landscape. Even during the pandemic however, we have been growing our customer base and this new facility will set us up to better serve our customers.”

    Farsound’s group sales director Lee Kelsey commented: “This is another step change for Farsound, as we look forward to the future and the growth within our business.  We have always believed in the aerospace industry, even during the pandemic, so have decided to carry on with our initial plans and invest in this new facility, which will enable us the ability to better serve our customers across the Americas.”

    Farsound said it was seeing continued growth across America for its MRO customers “on all platforms” heading into the summer.
