JOHNSTOWN, Ohio (Jan. 24, 2005) — Tech International has established a new wholly owned subsidiary in Canada, Tech International Canada Corp.
Tech International—which produces tire repair and related wheel service products—also has opened and is operating a full-service warehouse and distribution facility in Brantford, Ontario.
“Tech is the tire repair leader,” said Michael Chambers, CEO. “To that end, we are realigning our distribution and supply strategies in this very important market in order to drive continued increases in Tech market share and sales growth.”
Four new distributors also were appointed, including: B-Line Tech in St. Albert, Alberta; Camne Supplies in Ontario; Duret & Landry Inc. in Laval, Quebec; and BB Distributors in Graven Hurst, Ontario. TechCan, now PremaCan, is no longer an authorized distributor in Canada, Tech said.
Mr. Chambers said Tech continues to recruit new distributors in Canada.
