Mississauga, ON — Getting the product “out the door” and into the hands of Canadian customers in a timely manner has been a challenge that Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. of St. Charles, IL, has been tackling in the past six months.

By enlisting the help of Mechanical Sales Company of Mississauga, ON, a Canadian manufacturer’s agent and 3PL (3rd Party Logistics) company, Bison now provides warehousing, inventory management and delivery of over 400 Bison gearmotors, motors, reducers and accessories to the Canadian market, while strengthening its supply chain and providing customer service to its Canadian customers.

“With the success of Bison’s ISIS (In-Stock Instant Ship) program, it only made sense to mirror our domestic stocking program in the Canadian marketplace to serve customers better,” says Mike Niemela, director of distribution at Bison Gear. “We were looking for a partner with an established presence in Canada who had the ability to offer innovative logistics solutions to improve our on-time delivery and order fulfilment.”

Products will be stocked in the Toronto area to ensure speedy delivery, says Niemela.
