KIOTI Tractor is opening a new distribution centre right outside Toronto, Ont. The aim of the new facility is to reduce shipping and delivery times. The new 60,000 sq. ft space will be built in Mississauga, Ont. and will feature both corporate offices and distribution space.
According to the news release, the new addition to the Canadian market represents the company’s commitment to further it’s brand in across the nation.
“We are committed to delivering outstanding service to our growing network of dealers,” says Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, president and CEO of Daedong-USA, Inc. KIOTI Tractor Division. “This expansion illustrates that commitment, and will allow us to provide unmatched availability and delivery of products to our Canadian dealer partners and customers.”
This Canadian expansion follows a $13 million, 162,000 sq.-ft. warehouse expansion and nearly 15,000 sq.-ft. office addition to KIOTI’s North American headquarters in Wendell, N.C.
“After 30 years of consistent growth in North America, we are pleased with the progress we have made in 2018 on expanding both our North American headquarters and establishing our new Canadian operation,” says Anna Kim, chief operating officer of Daedong-USA, Inc. KIOTI Tractor Division. “In Canada, specifically, KIOTI seeks to create a positive economic impact on the greater Toronto metro area, which will begin by employing several full-time individuals in the distribution center in the near future.”
