Hisco has opened a new Canadian division, HiscoCan Inc., located in the greater Toronto area to service the Canadian electronics assembly and industrial markets.

"We are very pleased to be able to offer products and services to customers throughout North America," said Bob Dill, Hisco’s president. "The staff at the Canadian operation is very experienced; they know the Canadian market and our key suppliers well. We’ve always been strong in offering our customers local solutions — the addition of a stocking location in Toronto gives Hisco® a broader reach and offers synergies to our customers."

"I am particularly excited to offer the expanded Hisco services to our market," said Rick Weatherill, HiscoCan’s branch manager. "With the addition of chemical management, converting services, custom adhesive packaging, integrated supply options and ecommerce, we offer customers additional value beyond providing world class brands such as Alpha, 3M, Loctite and Brady."

Rick Weatherill is joined by two account managers, Danny Santoro and Brett Rivers, each with many years of experience in electronics assembly in the Canadian marketplace.
