Fifth wheel parts provider Fontaine Parts Connection has opened a new distribution center to better serve its customers in Western Canada. Fontaine has contracted with FMi Logistics Inc. to fulfill Genuine Fontaine Parts orders for the region from FMi's Calgary, Alberta, warehouse.
"Adding this distribution center enables our customers throughout Western Canada to obtain their fifth wheel replacement parts more quickly and efficiently," said Toby Harris, vice president of sales and marketing for Fontaine Parts Connection. "Instead of waiting several days for an order to arrive from the U.S. or Toronto, customers now will be able to receive most of their parts within a day."
FMi offers regular same-day shipping on Fontaine parts and can handle emergency rush orders. Customers are also welcome to pick up parts at the warehouse, which is located at 7151 44th St. SE in Calgary.
"Working with FMi will help Fontaine offer its area customers improved service levels," says Dennis Gwilliam, general manager, warehousing & distribution for FMi Logistics. "We run an efficient, nimble operation and treat our customers' goods as if they were our own."
