February 20, 2013 – Lutron says it has chosen Canada for its first International Experience Centre, to be located in Markham, Ont., just outside of Toronto. The centre will showcase a variety of wireless lighting and shading control solutions for commercial spaces.

“We recognize the importance of Toronto as an international specification location and wanted to add the appropriate resources to best serve our Canadian customers,” said Tom Ike, VP of global sales at Lutron. “We look forward to growing our presence here and servicing this important market.”

Ground-breaking on the Canadian facility—a commercial experience centre and specification office—began this month. The 2800-sf space (certified as LEED Gold) will celebrate its grand opening this summer. Peter Saccomanno, VP and GM of Lutron Electronics Canada Inc. says the facility will include numerous Lutron control solutions.

Although the Canadian facility will be Lutron’s eighth Experience Centre in North America, it will be the first outside of the U.S.
