Plumbing and HVAC/R wholesaler Wolseley Canada, Burlington, Ont., broke ground on a new 130,000 sq. ft. multi-purpose facility in Laval, Que. June 23. The facility, scheduled for completion in November, will employ 180 people. It will include a plumbing and HVAC/R branch, a Vague & Vogue showroom, warehousing, and office space to house the company’s Quebec management, sales and administrative teams.
The new location at 4200 Rue Louis B. Mayer is designed to offer Wolseley customers a “one-stop-shop” with a plumbing and HVAC/R branch and showroom in the same location. Additionally, Wolseley will use the new Laval warehouse to replenish inventory at its 38 Quebec plumbing and HVAC/R branches for more efficient and timely delivery of products throughout Quebec.
Wolseley’s current Laval HVAC/R branch, located at 4075 Industriel Blvd., will relocate to the new facility, as will the company’s plumbing branch and showroom, both currently located at 890 Munck Ave. in Laval. Wolseley’s other branches in the Montreal area will continue to operate from their current locations.
“The province of Quebec and the Montreal region have been integral to our company’s success over the years and this investment in our infrastructure shows Wolseley’s commitment to the region,” said Sébastien Laforge, general manager, plumbing and HVAC/R, Quebec. “The facility will help us centralize our Quebec operations and will increase our capacity to better serve our customers in the region…”
