Vast-Auto Distribution, founded in Montreal in 1986 announced the opening of its newest distribution centre in Quebec City next September.
Since the acquisition of Base Automotive in 2007 and the opening of a second distribution centre in Ontario in 2009, this newest addition in Quebec’s Capital brings Vast-Auto’s total number of distribution centres to four.
Vast-Auto is enthusiastic about this addition claiming it will offer a strong value proposition to parts store located in Quebec City and the surroundings. The significant investment in inventory will provide local parts stores with a wide assortment of vehicle parts and accessories of both national and private label brands therefore reducing lead times and allowing them to better serve their customers. “The addition of a distribution centre in Quebec City will favourably position us to effectively and efficiently service parts stores located in the region” said John Del Vasto, president of Vast-Auto Distribution.
“Earlier this year, we reinforced our focus on service as a key differentiator from our competition with our “Service is the difference, we get it!” campaign. This statement is not a promotional catchphrase but reflects our commitment to our customers and reinforces our proximity strategy with our channel partners across Quebec and Ontario” explained John Del Vasto. The opening of this distribution centre in Quebec City definitely proves that Vast-Auto is serious about service.
