2011 Jobber of the Year Expands into Calgary

Edmonton-based Warehouse Services Inc., the 2011 Jobber News Jobber of the Year, has expanded to the Calgary and High River Alberta markets with the acquisition of Mikkelsen’s Auto locations.
With the expansion,WSI has become a province wide company.
Warehouse Services Inc. has grown from an exhaust specialist organization to a full service business with five locations including its 80,000 square foot main warehouse.
The acquisition represents a significant step for the company.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to expand our reach and bring our unique value proposition to a whole new market place.” says Scott Scherr of WSI. Today’s announcement is the product of months of hard work between WSI & the Mikkelsen group. “Both of our companies have a long track record of fantastic customer service and strong belief in treating our staff with the respect and honesty they deserve.”
“Without the people we have nothing,” says Scott McKenzie, the new manager of the Calgary/High River operations who is looking forward to joining the Calgary team. “We look forward to continuing to service the existing Mikkelsen clientele and grow our business by sticking to what got us here; delivering quality brand name parts backed by the best people in the industry.”
Further to its support of the industry, WSI has instituted an extensive training strategy and works with apprenticeship programs as sponsor of the WSI Award at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) for the highest achieving second year student in the Service Technician Program. WSI also raises money for the Rick Gibson Memorial Award for Parts Technicians at NAIT.
