Transit Warehouse Inc. unveiled the company’s new distribution centre in Lvis, Quebec before members of the press and regional politicians.
The 50,000-sq.-ft. building allows the company to store its complete auto parts inventory under one roof.
“The territories we serve have grown steadily in the last five years. Transit Warehouse Inc. is now a major player in the auto parts market. We needed the space offered by this new warehouse to continue expanding while still providing the quality, rapid service our clients have come to expect,” says Stphane Guay, president of Transit Warehouse Inc. “We also wanted to do our part for the environment. We are very proud of this green building and hope to set the example for distribution centres of the future.”
The new distribution centre is environmentally friendly, using various elements such as water-saver plumbing fixtures and low- temperature geothermal heating to meet Canadian environmental standards. Furthermore, the ventilation and air conditioning system and high-efficiency fluorescent lighting are controlled with motion detectors, subscribing even further to the new green building philosophy.
