The entire 92,000 sq. ft. Walter Surface Technologies International campus (Montreal, Pointe-Claire, Qc), which houses its new Bio-Circle facility, is now complete. More than 300 guests, including some of Montreal's top business leaders and key metalworking industry executives, were on hand for the official inauguration of the campus. Tours were conducted by members of the Walter team, which provided close-up views of products at work.

The campus serves as the overall international headquarters for the Walter Company, encompassing corporate management, R&D, laboratories, product management, test centers, marketing, sales, warehousing, distribution and after sales service. Construction of this campus represents an investment over $30 million.

The new Bio-Circle complex contains a high-tech bottling plant where production capabilities are increased 10 fold and quality control is enhanced. According to the company, key components of this new facility include automated bottling systems, large mixing and storage tanks, and sophisticated pumping and packaging systems.

"We really are about performance, safety and sustainability," said Pierre Somers, Chairman and CEO of Walter Surface Technologies International. "We are dedicated to helping our clients work better by providing the best possible Walter products and by making Green Work with our Bio-Circle Environmental Solutions line of products. The new campus is a major asset for our future growth. Now, we have the automation, the processes and the facility to help us execute our core value of delivering products and solutions that help our customers work better. Today, this focus on 'making green work' is leading to the development of environmentally helpful initiatives that are increasingly welcome in our industry."

Recently LEED Gold Certified, new Walter campus features include: optimized storage facilities with carefully managed humidity for sensitive products to ensure quality; energy efficiency with 49 wells running 500' deep to capture geo-thermal energy that keeps the entire facility comfortable year round; windows that contribute to overall temperature control; controlled water temperature in all rooms, including washrooms and the cafeteria; air filtering systems that clean the air before it is released into the atmosphere; and neutralization of chemical effluents before they enter the municipal sewage system.

Walter uses its own Bio-Circle cleaning system for parts and equipment, contributing to the elimination of toxic solvents. Walter's employees recycle more than just paper and aluminum cans - they follow a comprehensive recycling program covering virtually every aspect of daily operations, from cafeteria services to individual work spaces.
