October 29, 2014 – Mersen (formerly Ferraz Shawmut) announced that its Mississauga, Ont. plant is registered with Canada’s Controlled Goods Program, while the Rochester, N.Y., plant is registered with International Traffic in Arms Regulations.

Registration in Canada’s CGP is required for all companies who possess or transfer controlled goods in Canada. The U.S. government, meantime, requires that all companies involved in the manufacture of goods for the military be ITAR-compliant. Compliance means that a company has registered with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) and follows the regulations.

Mersen’s Rochester plant manufactures laminated bus bar, while the Mississauga plant manufactures products for the cooling of power electronics.
