ADS Opens New Office in Surrey, British Columbia

Canada’s design, engineering and certification experts ready for significant uptick in work

TORONTO — 22 March 2022 — ADS has opened a new office in Surrey, British Columbia.

The company, Canada’s premier design, engineering and certification experts, is preparing for a significant increase in work as the world’s aviation industry emerges from the 2-year-long COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are preparing to help commercial, business, and special mission aircraft operators transition out of the pandemic restrictions with their aircraft in top shape,” said Bob Gow, president of ADS.

“We’ve been busy over the past two years but anticipate a significant increase in engineering design and certification requirements. We are incredibly pleased to open our new office in Surrey. It will allow us to do two things: one, to ramp-up and renew our service levels, and two, to increase the number of support hours available to our current and prospective clients.”
