HELUKABEL, a manufacturer of cable, wire and cable accessories, announced that its North American operations are growing with the opening of its HELUKABEL Canada headquarters in Toronto. The new facility, located at 3620B Laird Rd., will house Canadian corporate, sales and warehousing/distribution operations.

HELUKABEL Canada will be in their new facility beginning April 1.
“Canada’s continued industrial and renewable energy expansion made adding a domestic distribution center a logical choice to further enhance our services to the market,” said Alex Kanouni, general manager of HELUKABEL Canada. “Being centrally located in the Greater Toronto Area allows us to reach the entire country within a few business days.”
With sales operations in Canada since 2008, product used to be shipped from HELUKABEL’s U.S.-based distribution center in Elgin, Ill. With the opening of the new warehouse, 600 line items—including products such as the TRAYCONTROL 600, TRAYCONTROL 530, TOPFLEX 600 VFD, JZ-602 and JZ-603—will be available for immediate shipment. Customers will also have the added convenience of receiving quotes and purchasing product using the Canadian dollar based on meter length measurements.
“We look forward to providing even more cabling expertise in an effort to assist Canada’s future growth in such sectors as automated industrial manufacturing, food and beverage packaging, and renewable energy generation,” Kanouni continued.
