MONTREAL, Quebec Vast-Auto Distribution announced the opening of its newest distribution center in Quebec City next September.
Since the acquisition of Base Automotive in 2007 and the opening of a second distribution center in Ontario in 2009, this newest addition in Quebec’s capital brings Vast-Auto’s total number of distribution centers to four.
Vast-Auto says the addition will offer a strong value proposition to parts stores located in Quebec City and the surroundings. The significant investment in inventory will provide local parts stores with a wide assortment of vehicle parts and accessories of both national and private label brands therefore reducing lead times and allowing them to better serve their customers. "The addition of a distribution center in Quebec City will favorably position us to effectively and efficiently service parts stores located in the region," said John Del Vasto, president of Vast-Auto Distribution.
“Earlier this year, we reinforced our focus on service as a key differentiator from our competition with our ‘Service is the difference, we get it!’ campaign. This statement is not a promotional catchphrase but reflects our commitment to our customers and reinforces our proximity strategy with our channel partners across Quebec and Ontario,” said Del Vasto.
