Federated member Canusa Automotive has expanded its main distribution center in Dorchester, Ontario 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 AC Delco products.
“Our warehouse expansion will allow us to better serve our customers in southwest Ontario,” said Stephen Drake, vice-president of Canusa. “AC Delco is our 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. We also want to thank everyone at AC Delco for all their assistance in this expansion.”
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on October 12 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.
Canusa Automotive is a full line warehouse distributor operating two distribution facilities in Dorchester and Mississauga, Ontario and 37 parts store outlets under the Auto Parts Centres banner.
