TORONTO, Ontario – Vast-Auto Distribution has opened a new distribution center in London, Ontario, bringing the company’s total DC count to five. The target opening date for this newest location is March 2014.
Vast-Auto says the new location will offer a strong value proposition to parts stores located in Southwestern Ontario. 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 this facility in London supports Vast-Auto’s ongoing growth strategy in the Ontario market. “This is a very important market for us and we are committed to offering parts stores parts availability through accessibility with our wide product assortment and provide value added services to fulfill the needs of our growing customer base,” said John Del Vasto, president of Vast-Auto Distribution.
“We continue to reinforce our focus on service as a key differentiator from our competition. This reflects our commitment to our customers and reinforces our proximity strategy with our channel partners across Ontario and Quebec,” he added.
