Canon Canada, a maker of copiers, printers and other equipment, recently moved nearly 40 employees from its office in Burlington, Ontario, to nearby Hamilton, according to The Hamilton Spectator.
Hamilton, located just south of Toronto, has been making an effort to attract businesses, but in this case the move wasn't planned by the city. Canon didn't notify anybody they were moving until the switch was nearly completed.
"We knew nothing about it," Glen Norton, chief of Hamilton's downtown development, told the development. "They didn’t come to us for any incentives or advice or anything. This was a quiet move. They made the decision that Hamilton was where they wanted to go and then gave a broker the mandate to find them the right space. This is sign that we’re really making some progress. They just went ahead and made their decision based on the business case for Hamilton."
Businesses that are considering moving should use a self storage facility in order to house their equipment as they get settled. There are many self storage facilities in Toronto and other major Canadian cities that offer small business storage and workplace storage for those moving companies.
Jiffy offers businesses plenty of options for Toronto storage, whether it's filing cabinets or office supplies. What's more, the company is currently holding a contest for a new iPad 3, which is a device that just about every businessman could use to help improve productivity.
