April 8, 2013 (London, ON) — In order to continue to meet the needs of our growing customer base, Chalifour Canada will be relocating its Vancouver Distribution Centre to a modern industrial park in nearby Delta, BC. Construction is expected to be completed by mid-2014.
The new, state-of-the-art facility will be located in the Tilbury Industrial Park, approximately 20 minutes from the current site in Surrey. The new location will provide greater visibility for Chalifour, and improved access for commercial trucking.
“The facility will be customized to meet the needs of our business, and we are working with a group of professionals to ensure that infrastructure will be in place to support our operations,” says Bret Walters, General Manager of Chalifour Canada.
“We made a commitment to our Dealers to maintain a strong presence on the West Coast, and our move to a new Distribution Centre reflects our ongoing efforts to improve workflow, and streamline our business to be more responsive to the needs of our customers,” adds Tim Urquhart, President and CEO of TIM-BR MART Group.
