Graybar to open its largest branch in Vaughan, Ont.
Oct. 4, 2018 - Graybar Canada, a Halifax-headquartered, employee-owned wholesale distributor of electrical products, will open its largest branch to date in Vaughan, Ont., this fall.
Located near the intersection of Highways 427 and 407, the 90,000-square-foot facility (pictured under construction)—equipped with a wire paralleling machine—will allow the company to consolidate its existing branches in nearby Markham and Mississauga, Ont. In addition to launching this new electrical warehouse hub for the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), Graybar will open a counter pickup location in Mississauga, so as to continue serving local customers there.
“For several years, we’ve been looking at ways to grow in the GTA,” says Brian Thomas, Graybar’s executive vice-president (EVP) and general manager (GM). “With more customers taking advantage of our full lines of business, it makes sense for us to position ourselves in a central location. With a significantly larger warehouse, we’ll be able to stock more inventory and provide more efficient wire cutting services.”
The new facility will also include a larger training room to accommodate staff and customers on-site.
