Fisher Textiles has announced its expansion into Canada with a new distribution center that will stock many of Fisher's most popular styles. Benefits to Canadian customers include faster delivery time, decreased shipping costs, same day shipping and the ability to request styles to be stocked.
Fisher already sells to a variety of world class printing businesses in Canada. "We've decided to expand our distribution capabilities into Canada to get our material closer to our Canadian customers," said Scott Fisher, president of Fisher Textiles. "Having Canadian partners helps us understand the market place and enables us to do a better job servicing the needs of our Canadian customers."
"We choose to work with a distribution partner to insure our service levels and shipping capabilities would be in line with our customer expectations," said Larry Fisher Jr., VP of International Sales. "Accord Transportation is a first class distribution business, serving all parts of Canada from its location in Mississauga, Ontario. Accord Transportation will be a great addition for our customers that have just in time requirements. In some cases, it will be practical to ship directly from the states—especially when time is less of a factor. We will be stocking many popular styles in Mississauga. As customer demand dictates, we will add to our product mix."
In addition to the distribution and logistics expertise provided by Accord Transportation, Fisher Textiles is partnering with TG Graphics, a sales organization based in Montreal. "TG Graphics sells a variety of products to the printing market. They cover nearly all areas of Canada as part of their existing business. Adding textiles to their mix will compliment their business as well as ours," said Larry Fisher Jr. "We have been talking with Al Proulx, president of TG Graphics for well over a year about this endeavor. We are excited about this business relationship as we are certain it will benefit both parties and the customer base we wish to serve."
