Nortrax has announced the opening of their new state-of-the-art facility in Ottawa, Ontario just minutes away from the old store that has operated there for over 20 years. The construction, forestry and quarry industry in the greater Ottawa area will now be supported and serviced from the new dealership at190 David Manchester Road.

The new 30,000 square foot building with 12 bay service center was designed to easily accommodate the larger production-class and mining equipment offered by John Deere. There is a greatly expanded parts warehouse, product support and technology showroom. This new location will have easy access and make it ideal to deliver products to eastern Ontario and Western Quebec.

Newly appointed Vice President, Nortrax Ontario and Newfoundland, Michael J. Rugeroni said, “With branch locations across Eastern Canada, Nortrax covers a large geographic area and Ottawa is a critical part of our footprint. We're investing heavily in Ottawa to position ourselves to better meet the needs of our customers in this key market. While offering new products and technology to our customers, we believe it's also important to provide our employees with the tools, facilities and training to perform at their best. Our excellent team led by Ottawa Nortrax General Manager, Luke Sheppard, is laying the foundation for future growth and success.”

Chris Holmes, Nortrax VP Product Support states, “In order to become even more efficient and effective in supporting our customers, we've recently revised our technology roadmap at Nortrax. We identified specific needs that our customers demand and have reshaped our strategy to support them. The new Ottawa facility will highlight these changes with a more accommodating training center and showroom. We are excited to be the bridge between technological advances in our industry and our customers in the Ottawa area.”

Sheppard invites construction and forestry customers and the general public to stop in and meet his team, tour the new facility, as well as the product support and service offerings, and see the new John Deere equipment on display. Sheppard stated, “Our new home will bolster our already strong product support, sales and rental programs as we continue to provide the outstanding service our customers expect. Stay-tuned for more events and the grand opening scheduled for early spring 2016. Our entire Ottawa team has been waiting with anticipation to unveil our beautiful new facility to our customers and to the community.”
