GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – CBK International Inc., a warehouse distributor based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, has joined the Automotive Distribution Network as an Auto Pride member, according to Mike Lambert, Network president.
“CBK International is a fast-rising company that will be an excellent representative of the Auto Pride brand as the Network continues to extend its footprint into Canada,” Lambert said. “I’m confident this new partnership will be mutually beneficial, enabling CBK to utilize the Network’s purchasing power, IT initiatives and marketing support to continue to expand their customer base.”
Operating out of its 42,000-square-foot main warehouse in Mississauga, CBK International currently serves approximately 100 jobber stores in Ontario and Quebec. CBK also has four cooperated jobber stores, along with 10 associate jobber locations.
According to Roy Shen, vice president of CBK, the timing was right for CBK to join the Network as the company increases its number of product lines and continues its steady growth. “As a member of the Network, CBK will add several product lines so we can serve as a better supply chain to support our customers,” Shen said. “CBK’s affiliation with the Network and the Auto Pride brand will not only strengthen confidence with our current jobbers but also enable us to grow our customer base.”
