Tingley Rubber expands to Canada
By Andrew Macklin
February 8, 2016 – Tingley Rubber Corporation, a provider of protective footwear and clothing, announced expansion into Canada to provide its range of solutions.
Tingley has opened a sales office in Quebec City that will provide bilingual customer service and marketing support. A new distribution center in Brampton, Ontario will serve as the supply hub for all products. Tingley also announced that Defender Sales Agency Limited, an independent sales force, has been selected to drive sales across Canada.
“Geographic expansion is critical to Tingley’s growth strategy and it’s only natural to have a strong presence in Canada” said Mike Zedalis, president of Tingley. “The opening of our Quebec City office and new warehouse is a critical first step to be the leading provider and innovator in the safety apparel and footwear markets in Canada.”
Initially, Tingley plans to roll out its full line of industrial apparel and non-safety waterproof footwear. Additional high visibility and safety footwear products will be available in the third quarter of 2016. A Canadian website is available in both English and French at www.tingleyrubber.com.
