Calgary distributor adds line of power transmission belts

Calgary, AB – Carlisle Power Transportation Products of Franklin, TN, and Transmission Supplies Ltd. (TSL) of Calgary, AB, have formed a new partnership. Founded in 1905, Carlisle is a belt and belt drive solution provider that manufactures a full line of industrial belts and power transmission components in the US. TSL is a family-owned bearing and transmission supply specialist offering the largest single source supply of industrial belts in the Calgary area.

The partnership makes TSL the largest ‘in-stock’ provider of Carlisle belts in Western Canada. Based in Calgary, TSL has been a Canadian-owned and operated business in the North American power transmission and motion control industry since opening its doors in 1953.

“Partnering with Carlisle gives TSL the opportunity to not only support, but grow our diverse customer base by allowing us the confidence of supplying an expanded scope of consistently high-quality industrial belts at competitive prices,” said K.C. Foore, general operating manager, TSL.

“We are excited about the wonderful synergies our two companies bring together,” said John Vassilaros, president of Carlisle’s power transmission division. “TSL’s great distribution model, combined with Carlisle’s breadth of reliable, quality products, brings great value to our customers, which is where we dedicate our focus.”

Both TSL and Carlisle are ISO9001 certified, which designates a model for quality assurance worldwide. Carlisle also operates offices in Waterloo, ON, and Winnipeg, MN.
