Whirlpool Canada has started building a new distribution centre CN’s Calgary Logistics Park in Rocky View County, Alberta, in a project overseen by developer Tribal Partners/Matthews Southwest.
“We are very pleased to welcome Whirlpool Canada as a major tenant in our state-of-the-art Calgary Logistics Park,” said Andrew Fuller, assistant vice-president of domestic intermodal at CN. “By locating at our Calgary Logistics Park, Whirlpool can provide customers with the supply chain and logistics flexibility they need to service their customers and increase their competitiveness.”
Whirlpool representatives joined CN to break ground July 28 on the 425,000-sq. ft. facility that will serve as a distribution centre for finished Whirlpool appliances coming to Alberta from across North America.
Stephen Stewart, director of supply chain at Whirlpool Canada, said: “Our new regional distribution centre at CN’s Calgary Logistics Park provides us direct connection to CN’s rail network and transportation services, allowing us to deliver our major appliances for our retail partners more efficiently and reliably.”
