Meritor Inc. announced it recently completed an expansion of its aftermarket distribution center in Edmonton, Alberta, which it said will improve service and delivery time to its western Canada OE dealer and warehouse distributor customers.

The 35,000-square-foot center now stocks a full line of Meritor and Euclid drivetrain and undercarriage products. Customers in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan previously were served through the company’s distribution center in Brampton, Ontario.

The expansion improves product availability, which will reduce lead times as much as 70 percent, said Doug Jamieson, site manager, Meritor. “Our expanded center in Edmonton enables us to consolidate and expedite a customer’s order for Meritor and Euclid parts into one shipment for faster delivery,” Jamieson says.
