West Point Products Opens Distribution Center in Calgary, AB
Valley Grove, WV / Gananoque, ON (Jan. 2010) - West Point Products, a leading manufacturer of aftermarket imaging supplies, has announced the opening of its new distribution center in Calgary, AB. Primarily opened to help the company service its growing customer base in western Canada, the new distribution center will cut transit times to Canada's west coast considerably.
"We are excited about the opportunities this expansion will afford our western Canadian customers," commented Aldo Spensieri, VP of Sales for Canada, "This new distribution center will allow us to improve transit times to our dealers on the west coast who had until now been serviced from our Gananoque, ON location. Most locations in Canada will now be serviced with 1-day or 2-day shipping times at ground rates, which hold great benefits for our customers. Coupled with our industry-leading quality and value-add services like Axess Managed Print Services, we believe the flexibility this new distribution center offers will help to set our dealers apart from their competitors."
"At West Point Products, we are always striving to find ways to better serve our customers," added Joe Lucot, President and COO, "For many of our customers, our service levels have been the differentiating factor in their decision to partner with West Point Products. That is something that we will not take for granted, and this new distribution center in Calgary is proof of that."
West Point Products' Calgary distribution center is the company's seventh shipping point, and the second in Canada. The company's Canadian operation is based in Gananoque, ON, strategically located midway between Toronto and Montreal.
