Tech International forms Canadian subsidiary

Jan. 24, 2005

Tech International has established a Canadian subsidiary, Tech International Canada Corp.

Tech International Canada has a full-service distribution center in Brantford, Ontario.

"We are realigning our distribution and supply strategies (in Canada) in order to drive continued increases in Tech market share and sales growth," says Tech CEO Michael Chambers.

Tech also has named new distributors of its products in Canada. They include B-Line Tech of St. Albert, Alberta; BB Distributors of Graven Hurst, Ontario; Camne Supplies, another Ontario-based operation; and Duret & Landry Inc. of Laval, Quebec.

"We continue to aggressively recruit for additional new distributors within certain areas of Canada," says Chambers.

"The Tech brand has gained significant brand loyalty in Canada over the years and our goal is to continue to ensure not only Tech product availability in Canada, but also to ensure that our customers purchase Tech products at competitive pricing and receive unequaled training, service and support."

Tech is no longer working through its Canadian distributor, PremaCan (formerly TechCan).
