Integrated Supply Network (ISN), an independent tool and equipment warehouse distributor, has officially expanded operations to Canada with the acquisition of Distribution PDG.
Integrated Supply Network acquired Montreal, Canada-based automotive tool and equipment distributor Distribution PDG. PDG is an authorized distributor for major tool and equipment brands and is committed to distributing professional level products through multi-step distributors throughout Canada. ISN will be working with PDG (now known as ISN Canada) on rapid inventory and customer service expansion to meet the needs of the professional Canadian market. The acquisition occurred January 6.
Bruce Weber, President and CEO of ISN, and Martin Cote, previous owner of PDG and now President of ISN Canada, share a vision to operate the largest and most customer-centric tool and equipment warehouse network in Canada. Already operational, ISN Canada offers a comprehensive line of tools and equipment from 300 plus manufacturers to include tens of thousands of products including major lines including Bosch/Robinair, GearWrench, Ingersoll Rand, Milwaukee Electric Tool Company, Grey Pneumatic, Sunex, Autel, K-Tool International and more.
The line of available products has grown considerably, thus requiring extra warehousing capabilities. "We’ve added 11,000 square feet to our existing 18,000 to keep up with growth," said Cote. "We have a larger and more automated 45,000 square foot warehouse planned for early 2015."
ISN Canada anticipates rapid growth with the new product extension and has plans to expand throughout Canada aggressively in order to serve its already extensive Canadian customer base. “We are excited about how this new extension of ISN will help create new opportunities for both our amazing growth oriented customer base and “who’s who” list of manufacturer partners,” said Weber.
