AMES, IOWA, US — Todd & Sargent, a design-build provider to the agriculture industry, recently announced the expansion of its Canadian operations with the opening of an office in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The office will serve as the company’s Canadian headquarters.

As part of the expansion, the company has named Rori Bouchard as the new president of Todd & Sargent Canada, replacing Jon Sargent, who will remain on as the company’s chief executive officer. Bouchard brings 15 years of industry experience and joins Lesley Whitten, operations manager, to head up the company’s Winnipeg-based leadership team.

Founded in 1933 in Ames, Iowa, Todd & Sargent began serving clients in Canada in 1968 and formally established Todd & Sargent Canada in 1985 to serve the growing Canadian agriculture industry. The company’s Canadian team has served clients by designing and building grain handling facilities across western Canada.

Todd & Sargent said the expansion will allow the company to bring its breadth of industry experience into Canada to serve clients in a wider array of industries.

“After more than 50 years of serving Canadian clients, we’re excited to take this important step of increasing our presence in the prairie provinces to better support our Canadian team and clients,” Jon Sargent said. “We’re building a talented team focused on the future and we look forward to continuing our support of the Canadian ag industry in the decades to come. With extensive experience in the grain, feed, flour, petfood, malting, and oilseed industries, we are well positioned to help develop Canada’s growing ag infrastructure.”
