Waterloo Region Record, Article by Rose Simone
KITCHENER — A Netherlands-based private research institute that specializes in sensors and monitoring solutions for remote locations is setting up its Canadian development and manufacturing centre in Waterloo Region.
John van Pol, co-founder and chief executive officer of Ingu Solutions Inc. , says the company is a startup that spun out of Incas³, a non-profit research institute in the Netherlands that develops sensing and monitoring solutions that work in extreme temperatures or hard-to-reach places.
Ingu is operating out of a rented space in the Communitech Hub in Kitchener but is looking for its own offices as it starts to hire students in engineering-related disciplines out of the University of Waterloo and Conestoga College.
Van Pol says the office will start with five to 10 employees and grow to have about 40 staff. They will make high-tech sensing and monitoring equipment, and design and develop solutions for clients around the world.
