W&O launched a new branch in Halifax, Canada.  The new branch is located at 133 Ilsley Avenue, Dartmouth, NS B3B 1S9.

The Halifax branch will be led by Dan Sawler, a longtime resident of Nova Scotia.  Sawler joins W&O with an extensive background in the marine industry.  The branch will fall under the direct management of Regional Manager, Scott Hendrickson who leads the company’s Northeast branches in North America.
