UAP Inc. has opened a new Logistics Centre in Long Sault, Ontario. The 200,000 sq. ft., facility will hold more than 30,000 parts in stock, including chemicals, accessories, hardware, tools and equipment as well as paint, body and equipment products.
“This new facility is designed to improve our distribution operations so that we can better serve our customers across the country”, said Robert Hattem, president and chief executive officer. “There will be more space to manage our tools, equipment and non-application product inventory and ensure rapid service to all of our distribution centres. We will also be able to broaden the range and number of available products and increase our inventory level.”
The UAP Logistics Centre’s location near Trans-Canada Highway 401 will allow UAP to more efficiently meet the needs of its distribution centres and stores across the country. The centre will create nearly 40 jobs.
“We are very pleased with the opening of this new Logistics Centre, which will strengthen our extensive distribution network and reinforce our first-class service,” added Hattem.
