Meritor, Inc. announced the opening of its fourth North America aftermarket distribution facility: the Eastern Canada Regional Distribution Center in Mississauga, Ontario, which the company says will fulfill orders from warehouse distributors and dealers in seven provinces.
“The Mississauga center is another example of our commitment to further strengthening customer satisfaction and simplifying business transactions,” said Brett Penzkofer, vice president of aftermarket in 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. Unit-down orders in these provinces will be fulfilled from the Mississauga warehouse. According to the company, all orders placed by 4 p.m. ET will ship the same day, and customer pickup is also available.
Meritor’s Edmonton, Alberta facility will continue serving western Canada aftermarket customers. The company’s Florence, Kentucky location fulfills orders in the eastern United States, and the West Coast Aftermarket Distribution Center in Santa Fe Springs, California serves U.S. warehouse distributors and dealers in 13 western states.
