The Sudbury Branch is Aquatech’s third full service branch in Ontario; the head office in Concord and the Eastern Ontario branch in Ottawa.
The new branch is strategically located in close proximity to Northern Ontario’s surging mining sector which is demanding stronger and more specialized pumping and dewatering services.

The new facility, approximately 2,000 square feet of office space; 10,000 square feet of shop and two acres of outdoor equipment storage is prime to house the diverse portable pumping equipment fleet, large inventory of pipe, hose, fittings and monitoring equipment, as well as discharge filtration equipment to support local industry demands.
