Fleet Brake, a provider of truck and trailer parts and service based in Calgary, Alberta, today announced plans for a new parts distribution center in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.
Opening in February 2014, the new facility will be an important link in the Fleet Brake parts distribution network. Kamloops’ connections to Highways 5, 97, the Trans-Canada and Yellowhead Highways makes it a major transportation hub, giving the company additional ability to support regional and national customers. The company’s Peerless Parts and Service location in Penticton BC will benefit from having a parts distribution center relatively close by.
“We are excited to expand product and service to our legacy mining, forestry, logging, and construction customers in British Columbia,” says John Bzeta, president of Fleet Brake. “This further represents our commitment to providing unmatched parts availability to customers and dealers across Canada.”
The new location will be the second that Fleet Brake will open in as many months. The company is opening a parts distribution center in Regina, Saskatchewan, in January.
"Our mobile customers have been asking us for our premier product and service solutions in Saskatchewan for many years,” Bzeta says.. “The investment in the Global Transportation Hub and significant activity in the Saskatchewan oil patch makes Regina and Southern Saskatchewan an exciting place to do business.”
