Designed to ease load on Montreal facility

June 3, 2019

WOODRIDGE, Ill. –  Gerber Plumbing Fixtures LLC has opened a new Western Distribution Centre located in the lower mainland of British Columbia. The new facility, which became fully operational in the first quarter of 2019, is designated to provide additional support to Gerber partners in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The addition of a DC in this region is expected to ease the load on the primary warehouse located in Montreal, increase overall efficiencies and improve customer service.

“The new warehouse in British Columbia was a significant undertaking, but well worth the effort,” said Tony Favilla, vice-president of sales and marketing for Gerber Plumbing Fixtures LLC.

“The expansion will allow us to better serve our customers, which is always a good investment.”

Favilla added that procedures were put in place to assure a seamless transition for customers. “The addition of the warehouse will not affect the order process for customers. They will continue to follow the same process as they have in the past.”

Gerber Plumbing Fixtures, an international manufacturer and distributor of kitchen and bathroom plumbing products, operates facilities in nine countries, including Canada.
