Meyer Distributing will open a new facility in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the company announced. The cross-dock will have a direct, next-day feed from Meyer’s Hermiston, Oregon distribution hub.
“We’re excited to expand our Canada operations,” says John Thompson, general manager of Meyer Distributing Canada. “We received phenomenal support for our entry into Ontario, and we hope to match that in Alberta. We have a lot of unique and diversified product offerings to help customers grow their sales, and we look forward to connecting Calgary and Edmonton to our network.”
“We have historically pursued most markets from scratch and with organic growth, and it has served us well,” states Jeff Braun, CEO of Meyer Distributing. “That being said, we’re always considering acquisition opportunities in markets we service and are looking for diversified distribution opportunities in electrical, HVAC and industrial supplies as well as our traditional automotive segments. Anyone considering an exit from a distribution business in these verticals should reach out to Acquisitions@MeyerDistributing.com.”
