The new distribution centre will use state-of-the-art robot automation technology, the company said, and will include a showroom, a store and counter presence for customers.

“This facility will significantly enhance our customer experience by offering 24-hour customer pick-up and 60-minute delivery times across the Greater Toronto Area,” says Mark Gallant, vice-president, supply chain from Wolseley Canada. “It will create capacity and infrastructure to process more orders in a shorter period of time, which is crucial in today’s on-demand, just-in-time marketplace.”

Wolseley Canada is a wholesale distributor of plumbing, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration, waterworks, fire protection, pipes, valves and fittings and industrial products.

Construction on the market distribution centre is underway, with completion expected by the end of 2023.
