TORONTO – SCI has opened a new healthcare facility in the Greater Vancouver Area.

Located in Richmond B.C., the fully licensed distribution centre footprint is over 80,000 square feet, equipped with state-of-the-art automation and certified to Health Canada standards for natural health products, cosmetics, medical devices and prescription/non-prescription pharmaceuticals.

The facility will offer omnichannel fulfillment, product kitting, labeling, packaging and processing returns as well as all modes of transportation management.

This new distribution centre will be managed under SCI’s Quality Management System, which operates process controls through all areas of the supply chain. This ensures compliance with Canadian regulatory standards and safety protocols.
