Mascot Opens New Canadian Production and Distribution Facility

Mississauga, Ontario (April 30, 2015) –Mascot Truck Parts Canada, Ltd – Canada’s only wholesale remanufacturer of heavy truck components announced today the completion of its move to a new 40,000 square foot production and distribution facility located in Mississauga, ON. This facility move follows a previously announced plan to increase remanufactured product availability across Canada and to lower delivery lead times.

“Mascot has always understood that product availability and our unwavering loyalty to the wholesale customer base we serve is what made us successful” said Bill Statham, President of Mascot Truck Parts. Mascot expanded its distribution network across Canada, opening locations in Edmonton, Windsor, Montreal, Moncton, Halifax, and Newfoundland. Opening of a central distribution hub in Mississauga, ON will allow Mascot to quickly replenish inventory anywhere across the country. Mascot will also expand its “All-Makes” remanufacturing capabilities in its new facility including a complete steering production line, additional capacity for transmission and differential production and an expanded driveshaft repair footprint.

“I firmly believe that the wholesale remanufacturing market is underserved in North America. Mascot provides a nationwide warranty, 27 points of distribution across Canada and the US and a simplified customer service experience.” Stated Rich VanSlambrouck, Vice President of Mascot. “If we look after our customers, they will look after us. They are seeking an alternative, we hear this every time we visit with our network, this is why I believe so strongly in our strategy, we want to provide that choice in the marketplace” added Statham.

In addition to its new Canadian facility, Mascot also announced its intent to establish a new Remanufacturing Center of Excellence in the Indianapolis, Indiana area. Currently Mascot has a 95,000 square foot remanufacturing plant in Plainfield, IN.
