by Canadian Shipper

Vaisala Group, an international technology group that develops and manufactures electronic measurement systems and equipment for the transportation sector,. has entered the Canadian market with the hire of a Canadian-based sales engineer and the installation of the first ever AWOS (automated weather observing system) in Canada.

The British Columbia city of 108 Mile Ranch, a destination resort town with approximately 4,000 weekly flights, has purchased an AWOS for its 108 South Cariboo Regional Airport.

"AWOS are a great opportunity for Canadian airports to increase their airspace safety," said Karl Boivin who was recently named sales engineer and is responsible for introducing and selling Vaisala’s surface weather products.
