Unisource Worldwide Expands in Canada

Unisource Worldwide, Inc., announces the opening of a new 118,000 sq. ft. full-service facility in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  

“This new warehouse and office facility positions Unisource Canada to better service our customers’ needs in the Alberta market with access to the best products from leading manufacturers,” said Dan Barbagallo, President of Unisource Canada.

Located at 11704 – 186 Street NW, Edmonton, AB, T5S 0C4, this new facility is an example of Unisource Worldwide’s continued investment in its businesses, particularly the growth foreseen for the Edmonton and northern Alberta marketplace.   

“At a time when others in our industry seem to be reconsidering their commitment to the demanding Alberta market, we remain bullish on the future of all our core business units which include paper, packaging, facility supplies and logistics,” Barbagallo said.  He said Unisource plans to gradually increase product offerings and inventory levels at the new warehouse more than five-fold.

The new Edmonton facility will replace a smaller 25,000 sq. ft. building that for the past 10 years received most of its inventory from Unisource’s 250,000 sq. ft. warehouse based in Calgary.  Suppliers will now work with Unisource to ship inventory directly to the Edmonton facility – featuring a state-of-the-art warehouse management system (WMS), 22 receiving/shipping doors, and an environmentally-friendly motion-sensitive lighting system.
