DESCH began as a German owner-operated family company more than 100 years ago and is now a global company specializing in advanced mechanical and plant engineering, serving the oil and gas, construction, mining, and marine industries. When looking to expand into North America, DESCH found a home in Waterloo, Canada.
Waterloo benefits from having three of Canada’s most highly-regarded post-secondary institutions – the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College. For tech companies looking to grow, these schools are an incredible resource with a multitude of tech-specific programs.
Last week, Waterloo-based cybersecurity firm eSentire announced a new $47 million investment to supercharge research and development and a relocation within the community to accommodate its rapid expansion.
