Vard Electro Canada Expands into USA – Opening Vard Electro US Inc.

With Vard Electro Canada’s continuous growth, the company is pleased to announce the opening of new operations in US. Vard Electro US Inc. will be based in Houston, Texas, to serve the North American maritime industry, offering the same quality and expertise in marine electrical engineering, procurement solutions, and vessel system integration as Vard Electro is well known for world-wide.

Andrea Qualizza, General Manager for Vard Electro says; “Vard Electro has over decades served shipyards and shipowners all over the world. We have operated in the Canadian market since 2014, and we see there is a market for our services in the US. The establishment in Canada, and now in the United States, is important for us to be close to our customers.”

Andrea Qualizza, continues: “This has been a long time coming, and we at VARD and Fincantieri are very much looking forward to the opportunities with opening an office in the United States, that is aligned with our company vision to be the leading provider of sustainable system, by driving Fincantieri’s excellence in integration.” Vard Electro is a specialized subsidiary in the Vard Group majority owned by Fincantieri.

Working on expanding into the USA with Vard Electro over the past year, and for Vard Electro Canada to manage the US operations with their already North American presence and expertise in the market was a natural step for the company’s direction. The US location was chosen for centrality to better serve the US market, as well as others globally.

“Thanks to Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy, Vard Electro Canada was able to grow to a successful business in just over 4 years,” says Pierre Poulain, Managing Director for Vard Electro Canada. “We have been looking to continue to grow our business south of the border for some time now. It is very exciting to be finally making the leap and opening our first US office in Houston. Our team is ready for the new opportunities this brings us, and we will continue to provide our trusted electrical engineering services and integrated solutions to our US and global clients.”
