September 4, 2019

BURLINGTON, Ontario – Bunzl Canada has opened a new distribution centre in Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec.

It has run a number of recruitment campaigns this year to staff its operations in Quebec. Vaudreuil-Dorion, twice cited as one of the best cities in Canada in which to raise a family, was not only selected for its convenient access to major transportation routes but its attractiveness as a location for employees to live and work.

Quebec is a very strategic market for Bunzl,” said Bunzl Canada president, John Howlett. “We continue to invest in growing our wholesale distribution business across the province.”

Bunzl Canada’s Quebec operations are in multiple centres, including Montreal, Quebec City, Boucherville, and Lachine, with sales and customer service operations in Saint-Hyacinthe.

“We are committed to giving our customers access to knowledgeable, local people who provide personal service and dedicated support, so maintaining our local presence is vital,” Howlett said.

“That, combined with our comprehensive range of product categories and reliable national supply network, allows us to play a unique and pivotal role in our customers’ business success.”

The company’s previous investments in the province have included the acquisition of sanitation supply businesses Emballages Maska and Plus II Sanitation, which now operate under the R3 Redistribution brand banner.

Bunzl Canada provides a wide range of cleaning and hygiene products and equipment, food and retail packaging, safety products and industrial supplies to businesses across Canada.
