Distribution Stox Expands in Eastern Québec

June 10, 2024

Distribution Stox plans to acquire the passenger and light truck distribution division of Techno Pneu Inc. The transaction is expected to close on June 14, 2024.

Jean Novak, president and CEO of Distribution Stox, said, “This acquisition is part of our growth strategy which will enable Distribution Stox to solidify its presence in these eastern Québec regions in terms of passenger and light truck tire distribution.

"We will continue the great team work already in place by Techno Pneu’s team and keep taking
great care of customers who are supporting our growth."

Activities of the six Centre de Services Techno Inc. locations in Chandler, Amqui, Rimouski
and Rivière-du-Loup will continue under the Point S banner and will remain the property of the
Marquis family.

Jean-François Marquis, Techno Pneu shareholder, said, “By freeing up time as well as resources, we will focus on the development of various segments such as commercial, agriculture, OTR, retreading and others. Furthermore, we will continue to distribute and promote our private label brand Techno which remains a priority for us. We are convinced that with this new strategic orientation we will contribute significantly to the Techno Pneu growth. Our engagement towards our customers remains strong and wish a harmonious development to all."
