Meritor Tuesday announced the opening of its fourth North America aftermarket distribution facility, an Eastern Canada Regional Distribution Center in Mississauga, Ontario. Meritor says the new location will fulfill orders from warehouse distributors and dealers in seven Canadian provinces.
“The Mississauga center is another example of our commitment to further strengthening customer satisfaction and simplifying business transactions,” says Brett Penzkofer, vice president, Aftermarket, North America for Meritor. “Customers in eastern Canada will notice greater ordering flexibility and shorter lead times, with many current ordering and processing practices unchanged to ensure a seamless transition.”
The facility stocks Meritor Aftermarket’s complete brand portfolio for customers in Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Quebec. Meritor says unit-down orders in these provinces will be fulfilled from the Mississauga warehouse. All orders placed by 4 p.m. ET will ship the same day. Customer pickup is also available.
Meritor says its Edmonton, Alberta, facility will continue serving western Canada aftermarket customers. The company’s Florence, Ky., location fulfills orders in the eastern United States, and the West Coast Aftermarket Distribution Center in Santa Fe Springs, Calif. serves U.S. warehouse distributors and dealers in 13 western states.
