Payments to farmers survived in the latest extension of the farm bill. But not all of the groups that argued for the end of the subsidies see this as a loss. They've just been given nine more months to make their case to Congress.
Siemens Canada, the subsidiary of Germany-based Siemens AG, has been building up its presence in this country since 1912. It received its federal charter to operate 100 years ago, the same year the first Calgary Stampede was held. The company maintains a diverse portfolio ranging from energy to health care, but has been particularly active in Canada’s clean technology sector over the past year, led by its $440-million takeover of Vaughan, Ont.-based success story RuggedCom.
Robert Hardt, chief executive of Siemens Canada, said the company is constantly monitoring developments on the domestic cleantech scene. “It’s vital for us to have this network in place where we have an ongoing dialogue with these fast-growing companies to stay constantly informed of their activities,” he told Corporate Knights in an interview. “We can then decide the optimal time to enter into a partnership or, to take it a step further, an acquisition.”
Siemens sees smaller start-ups as especially valuable because of their ability to quickly bring new, innovative products to market. With its established global distribution network, it can harness these products and introduce them to a broader audience.
Always looking to stay competitive with GE and other large corporations that are leading the market for smart grid technology, Siemens had been keeping a watchful eye as RuggedCom grew to be the world leader in rugged communications networking technology.
