Techtop Canada Inc., a Canadian industrial motors distributor, has opened its first-ever Manitoba location in Brookside Business Park in CentrePort Canada. The 6,000 sq. ft. office, warehouse and distribution centre is on Ronn Road in CentrePort North.
Techtop’s products are manufactured in Asia and shipped to Canada for distribution by rail, road and air, which is what makes CentrePort an ideal location for the company. The new location allows it to be in close proximity to rail, which brings its products in from Vancouver, the many trucking companies located at CentrePort, and Winnipeg Richardson International Airport, where it can send rush orders off by air cargo.
With established distribution centres in Burnaby, Oakville, Montreal and Moncton, the new location in Manitoba was selected to better service Techtop’s clients in Central Canada.
“We looked at spaces in all of the major cities in the Prairies, and this location at CentrePort was ideal for our new central Canadian distribution centre,” said Shane Hickey, vice president, TechTop. “TechTop motors power all kinds of industrial products that Manitobans use every day – like car washes, fans, pumps and industrial garage doors. Just like our products, we’re here to help keep the wheels of industry turning. We are excited about our investment in Manitoba and we look forward to becoming part of the community here.” CentrePort Canada is Manitoba’s 20,000-acre inland port and Foreign Trade Zone.
