Accuristix opens new healthcare distribution facility in Vancouver

New facility will enhance service proximity for customers

OAKVILLE, ON, April 29 /CNW/ - Accuristix, Canada's leading healthcare-focused third party logistics provider, proudly announces the launch of a new facility in Vancouver, British Columbia. The new 58,000 square foot distribution centre will be a fully operational extension of the company's warehousing, distribution and advanced technology capabilities, increasing accessibility for customers in the region.

"Our clients and their customers will benefit from local product availability and reduced ship times that meet the same standards of excellence in quality and process we maintain at our other centres," says Brian MacAskill, Vice President of Strategic Operations at Accuristix. "It will be particularly beneficial to those who receive products from Asia."

The new facility is located at 10118 Swenson Way in Delta, BC just southeast of Vancouver. It will officially open on May 1.

"The Delta facility is another example of our focus on ways we can add value for our clients," says Cameron Joyce, President of Accuristix. "We have invested in leading technology, resources and infrastructure so we can meet the needs of our customers as they grow their businesses and expand market reach."

Accuristix currently has six distribution centres, including four in the Greater Toronto area, one in Vancouver and one in Los Angeles.

"This is a milestone for all of us," adds Cameron. "As we expand and grow our portfolio of facilities and services, our commitment to our clients will remain our priority."
