Ocean Sonics Opens New Headquarters in Truro Heights

The new Ocean Sonics headquarters boasts ample room for increased production and ability to accommodate growing staff

May 27, 2019

Truro, NS, Canada

Ocean Sonics, producers of the icListen Smart Hydrophone, has relocated its headquarters from Great Village, NS, to Truro Heights. “Ocean Sonics has experienced tremendous growth in 2017 and 2018,” says co-owner and Operations Manager, Desiree Stockermans. “The new building will help accommodate growing staff numbers and the increased demand for Ocean Sonics products.”

The design for the new building was chosen carefully, to encourage Ocean Sonics company values. Ocean Sonics is a Certified B Corporation. B Corp companies provide positive impacts for their employees, communities and the environment while growing and maintaining profitable businesses. The new building was designed to have a very low impact on the environment, with potential for a living green roof, and all materials and labour either sustainably or locally sourced.

Ocean Sonics worked with partners from Business Development Bank of Canada, Architects Omar Gandhi and Eric Stotts, and Lindsay Construction to bring the new building from a dream into a reality.

The Government of Canada also supported the project.

“Ocean Sonics is ready to scale up, and our government’s support will help the company take advantage of continued growth opportunities in the ocean sector,” said Bill Casey, Member of Parliament for Cumberland – Colchester, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for ACOA. “Supporting and developing Atlantic Canada’s world-class ocean-based business activity, research capacity, and proven technology expertise, is critical to growing the region’s ocean economy.”

Ocean Sonics will officially open the doors to its new headquarters in Truro Heights on June 7th, 2019. The Ocean Sonics team thanks all those who have made this move possible and is looking forward to continuing to push boundaries with its smart ocean acoustic products.

Ocean Sonics designs and manufactures the icListen innovative smart hydrophones and products to improve the quality and success of underwater sound measurements.
