Expanding Bridgestone's footprint
Tyre manufacturer Bridgestone Canada's new distribution centre in Ancaster, Ontario, is now operative. The automotive-dedicated unit has a maximum storage capacity of 570,000 tyres.
The new 140,000 sqm warehouse will support customers in Eastern Canada. It will employ about 50 people and will be operated by a third-party logistics supplier.
Bridgestone says its investment of close to USD 65 million will allow it to reduce transportation costs and shorten time-to-market for its products. Ancaster is close to Hamilton, Ontario and the 403 highway. (sh)
