Mississauga, ON — Effective Jan. 4, 2010, Spécialité Hydraulique Côte Nord Inc. (SHCN), located in Sept-Iles, QC, was acquired by Wainbee Ltd., a national distributor of fluid power and automation components and systems. As a result of this acquisition, Wainbee now has 13 locations coast-to-coast servicing customers from Vancouver to Halifax.

 

“Wainbee began doing business in Quebec in 1959 and prior to this acquisition, we have been serving the province from locations in Montreal, Quebec and Saguenay/Chicoutimi,” said Wainbee president Ron Rodger.

 

“The purchase of SHCN extends our strong presence in Quebec to cover the Cote Nord and Labrador regions, as well as expanding our existing business in the mining and metals markets.”

 

“Wainbee’s existing line-up of hydraulic, pneumatic, industrial tool, electromechanical and filtration products and services complement SHCN’s very well,” said Rodger. “Our goal is to continue to provide the high level of customer service and product expertise that SHCN customers have come to expect, while adding additional products and services through Wainbee.”

 

Founded in 1957, Wainbee is a 100 per cent Canadian, employee-owned company.
