Federated member Canusa Automotive has expanded its main distribution center in Dorchester, Ont. with the addition of 20,000 square feet, increasing the size of its warehouse to 120,000 square feet.

The new space will house all of Canusa’s ACDelco products.

“Our warehouse expansion will allow us to better serve our customers in southwest Ontario,” said Stephen Drake, vice president of Canusa. “ACDelco is our biggest product line with Federated and we felt it was important to have that product line located in its own space in our warehouse.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held last month to celebrate the grand opening of the new warehouse space. Bob Jones, the 89-year-old founder and retired chairman of the board of Canusa, was on hand for the ceremony. So were Al Ryan, ACDelco district manager; Paul D’Aurelio, GM Service Parts Operations director sales and marketing; Corey Graham, ACDelco national sales and marketing manager; Ivor Jones, Canusa Automotive president; and Stephen Drake, Canusa Automotive vice president.

Canusa Automotive is a full line warehouse distributor operating two distribution facilities in Dorchester and Mississauga, Ont., and 37 parts store outlets under the Auto Parts Centres banner.

Federated Auto Parts, headquartered in Staunton, Virginia, is one of the largest auto parts distribution and marketing organizations in North America. Federated is dedicated to supporting its customers with quality name brand parts, programs designed to grow their businesses, and experienced counterpeople who are knowledgeable in today’s evolving automotive technology.
