Curt Manufacturing, a manufacturer of towing products based in Eau Claire, Wis., launched operations in Edmonton, Canada. The new distribution center is the second Curt facility serving Canada, but the first and only factory-operated, full-line trailer hitch and towing accessories distribution center in the Alberta province, according to the company.
“This facility will greatly increase the service levels we offer our customers in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba,” said Shane McNallie, national accounts manager at Curt.
The new facility spans 25,000 square feet with four bay doors and a custom pick-up ramp. It utilizes Curt’s state-of-the art distribution process, which includes cutting-edge packaging and radio frequency tracking systems, the company said.
