Dayco has opened a new aftermarket distribution centre to serve Dayco customers throughout Eastern Canada.
The facility in Vaughan, Ont. will double as the company’s new Canadian aftermarket headquarters, as part of the company’s ongoing development strategy.
“This new facility will be replacing the current distribution centre in Concord, and better positions us for growth, while allowing us to continue to provide excellent customer service in the Canadian market” said Tyler Samagalski, director of sales for Canada.
“Making sure our aftermarket customers in the automotive, trucking and industrial markets have immediate access to our belts, hoses, tensioners and pulleys is our top priority,” he said. “The new distribution centre will enable us to deliver this objective and provide them with the support they need.”
Samagalski said recent growth in the company’s aftermarket operation prompted a need for new Canadian headquarters.
“We are currently expanding our Canadian team and the new location gives us the capacity we need to continue to do so,” he said.
Dayco has more than 50 locations in 20 countries and over 4,500 associates.
