TORONTO — Supply chain solutions company Metro Supply Chain Inc. has acquired Quick Contractors, a managed network of independent contractors, installers and assemblers.
“Completing over three million deliveries each year, Metro Supply Chain already offers fully managed last-mile logistics to more than 200 leading retailers,” said Chris Fenton, president and CEO of Metro Supply Chain. “With Quick Contractors joining the team, our customers will be able to leverage our combined expertise in home delivery and installation to provide consumers with next-level service.”
Founded in 2004 by Trevor Bouchard, CEO of Quick Contractors, Quick Contractors has since completed more than 1.7 million jobs through its broad and qualified network of 6,000 independent contractors and employees across North America.
“This is an exciting day for all of us at Quick Contractors,” said Bouchard. “We’re joining a last-mile leader with a shared entrepreneurial mindset and focus on delivering an exceptional customer experience through advanced technology, innovation and a dedicated team.”
Quick Contractors offers multiple services, including booking same-day installation. Its software offers product visibility and tracking, and consumers are provided with multi-channel support throughout the service.
Quick Contractors will operate as a specialty service within Metro Supply Chain’s Last-Mile Transportation Solutions.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Quick Contractors to Metro Supply Chain,” said Chiko Nanji, group chairman and founder of Metro Supply Chain. “The synergies of our two forward-focused national networks will in time provide our customers with the ability to schedule unified delivery service — the ultimate in choice, convenience and control.”
