Carlstar Group opens distribution middle in Edmonton, Alberta
The Carlstar Group today announced the opening of a new Canadian distribution center in Edmonton, Alberta.
“We strategically selected Edmonton as the location for our new Western Canada facility,” said Greg Lamothe, general manager of the Carlstar Group’s Canadian operations. “Edmonton is bringing us closer to many of our customers with larger and more modern facilities so that we can offer more efficient service and logistics.”
The 60,000-square-foot facility offers full sales capabilities, including assembling sub-assemblies of all sizes to meet customer requirements. The company says this newer, more modern, and larger capacity from the Edmonton facility will help streamline the Carlstar Group’s customer operations and ensure punctuality, order accuracy, and access to a wider range of Carlstar’s product portfolio from one location. In addition, the expanded dock capacities will enable more efficient logistics and handling, the company adds.
The facility will supply the following brands and products:
- Carlisle branded products in the agriculture and construction, special trailers, powersports and outdoor power equipment segments
- Aftermarket style Cragar, Blackrock and Unique wheels
- Flat free, pneumatic and semi-pneumatic products from the Marastar brand
“We are very excited about the investment in the Edmonton distribution center and this great addition to our global network and North American capabilities and presence,” said John Salvatore, CEO of the Carlstar Group. “This reinforces both our commitment and our investments in our Canadian business and further solidifies the Carlstar Group as a strategic partner in the specialty tire market.”
The new facility is located in:
