“We have strategically selected Edmonton as the location of our new facility in Western Canada,” says Greg Lamothe, general manager of Canadian operations for Carlstar. “Edmonton places us closer to many of our customers, with a larger and more modern space, allowing us to provide more efficient service and logistics.”

The 60,000 square-foot facility offers full distribution capabilities, including building assemblies in all sizes. With a larger capacity, the company says the Edmonton facility will help streamline its customer operations and will help ensure on-time delivery, order accuracy and access to a broader range of the Carlstar product portfolio from one location.

In addition, the expanded dock capabilities will enable more efficient logistics and handling, the company says.
