SMH Announces the Opening of the Port Coquitlam Distribution CenterThursday, April 2, 2009
Due to continued growth and an ongoing effort to improve service to customers, SMH is pleased to announce the opening of the Port Coquitlam distribution center. The new facility will be open for business on March 30, 2009. The 12,500 sq foot warehouse and offices are located just east of Vancouver and will stock over 10,000 part numbers.
SMH will offer service from this warehouse to B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, Yukon and the Northwest Territories. SMH’s customers are now able to order from any of our Canadian facilities through our ecommerce website IRMN or via phone and fax.
The additional Canadian warehouse will allow SMH’s customers to consolidate their orders and help to lower inventory levels and reduce freight costs.
Operation hours will be from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm PST with order pick-up available during those hours. Contact information is as follows:
