Canadian theme park and leisure equipment specialist Dynamic Attractions is planning to open a new assembly facility later this month.
Due to open in in Vancouver later this month, the 50,000sq.ft, high-tech factory will be used to assemble sophisticated ride systems featured in the company’s attractions at major tourist locations and theme parks around the world.
Last year, Dynamic Attractions opened more than twice as many attractions than any previous year. Furthermore, 2017 has already surpassed its previous record for new contracts.
To facilitate Dynamic’s continued growth, the company has made a series of appointments and promotions.
The new executive team, which will report to chief executive Guy Nelson, includes president and chief operating officer Hao Wang, who joins the group from automobile engineering firm, Multimatic.
Ye Zhou, president of group subsidiary, Dynamic Structures, has been promoted to chief technical officer of Dynamic Attractions, while former vice president of operations, Paul Poirier, has been named as senior vice president of strategic accounts and service
In addition, Brian Peebles has been appointed senior vice president of co-ventures for Empire Industries, and longstanding Dynamic Attractions member George Walker has been named as senior vice president of creative services for the group.
“With these promotions and additions to our executive leadership team, we have greatly enhanced our operational and creative leadership for the global markets we are leaders in,” Nelson said.
“They also reflect Empire’s commitment to increase our capacity to manage this growth.”
