Bradford White Canada Moves to New Facility
Bradford White Canada, the Canadian subsidiary of Bradford White Corp., has relocated all operations from Mississauga, Ontario, to Halton Hills, Ontario.
“When a customer calls Bradford White Canada, our goal is to be able to say, “We have it in stock, where would you like it shipped?” said Paul McDonald, general manager of Bradford White Canada, “Our growth in this market and our need to provide more services to our customers made the move to the new facility more than a necessity. It was an obligation to the customers we serve.”
Bradford White Canada’s new 75,000 sq. ft. Halton Hills location more than doubled warehousing space. It offers higher ceilings and multiple shipping doors increasing the ability to inventory more products and to ship products faster. Access to major transportation routes played a hand in the decision to move.
“Here in Halton Hills we have quick access to highways 401 and 407 and soon, with the construction of a major CN Railway transfer facility nearby, we’ll have a greater ability to ship by rail as well,” McDonald continued.
The new location, owned and designed by the company, allows Bradford White Canada to stock expanded product inventories from each of the Bradford White Corporation subsidiaries including Bradford White water heaters, Laars Heating Systems boilers and Niles Steel Tank storage tanks.
The new location also houses a full service parts center with same day shipping capability as well as a larger electric product conversion center to help get product to market faster. The crowning jewel of the new Bradford White Canada operation is a high-tech facility for training on gas and electric water heaters and gas boilers. The 1,000 sq. ft. training center features multiple live fire stations and ample seating for contractors, engineers, distributors, and other industry partners.
