Acklands-Grainger Coming to Caledon

Acklands-Grainger is Canada’s largest distributor of industrial safety and fastener products. On February 22, 2013 it held a “virtual ground-breaking” event to announce plans to open a 500,000 square foot distribution centre in Caledon, near Dixie Rd and Mayfield Road (ward 2), in 2014.

Construction has already begun and this new facility will serve customers across Eastern Canada. It will house more than 150,000 industrial supply items such as: safety supplies, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning gear, hand and power tools and electrical equipment.

When opened, this distribution centre will employ between 150 to 200 warehouse and logistics personnel.

Acklands-Grainger currently operates 30 branches across Ontario and its national headquarters is located in Richmond Hill. Founded in 1889, the corporation has a long history of being an active member in the communities where its employees live and work.
