Ancra cuts ribbon at new Canadian facility

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Ancra International has opened a brand new facility in Mississauga, Ont. which will service all of Ancra’s Canadian customers, as well as provide a strong base for Ancra’s continued growth in the Canadian market, the company says.

Ancra, a designer, manufacturer, and distributor of cargo restraint and material handling systems utilized in the transportation industry, says the new location provides quick and easy access to customers wanting to pick up orders quickly and avoid unnecessary traffic congestion.

It is located just north of Hwy. 401 in the Hurontario and Courtney Park West area at: 6710 Maritiz Dr., Unit # 2, Mississauga, Ont., L5W 0A1.

“Ancra International is proud to be back in Canada with our own facility to support our loyal customers and the continued explosive growth we are experiencing,” says Ralph Abato, director of sales and marketing. “It has been our aim to better support the goals and achievements in Canada with a facility that can continue to meet the needs of the customer base here.”

While the facility will initially operate as a warehouse and distribution centre, there are already plans being made to expand into custom sewing, stenciling, and assembly.

Ancra says its investment in this new facility provides it with the capacity to carry four times the inventory previously carried in Canada. A state of the art bar coding system is also being installed in the operation in early May and this will be followed closely by full EDI capability.

“The new facility will provide the Canadian market quick response with custom cargo restraint products in addition to the world class offerings from Ancra’s standard catalog of products,” adds Steve Frediani, president of Ancra International.
