EDMONTON, Alberta — Edmonton-based distributor North Country Tire Distributors Ltd. (NCT) has agreed to partner with Point-S Canada to bring the Point S retail program to dealers in Western Canada.
The deal will provide a platform for Point-S Canada to "consolidate our presence in Western Canada and offer a stress-free alternative to consumers," Bruno Leclair, president and CEO of the Montreal-based company, said.
Point-S said it expects the NCT to sign 10 to 15 customers a year for the next few years to the Point S program, starting with the one retail outlet that NCT operates. The agreement covers Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan.
There are more than 200 Point-S-branded retail locations in Quebec, Ontario and the Atlantic Provinces.
NCT operates wholesale distribution centers in Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta. It lists Cooper, Federal, Hankook, Laufenn, Kumho, Mirage, Pirelli, Roadmaster, Starfire, Super Cargo and Wind Power among the consumer and commercial tire brands it distributes.
