BURLINGTON, ON – Today, Don Ziesman, General Manager, Wolseley Industrial, Western Canada, is pleased to announce the opening of Wolseley Industrial’s newest Express Branch located at 122 Hampshire Rd. in Hinton, Alta. The Hinton location is one of several new branches Wolseley Industrial will open in 2015.
The new Express Branch is strategically located at the intersection of the Yellowhead and Bighorn highways, providing contractors in west-central Alberta with convenient access to the products they need as they travel from job site to job site.
On February 2, the second phase of the branch will open – a Field Service Centre – which will support Wolseley Industrial’s west-central Alberta customers’ requirements for preventative maintenance and valve repair services.
“Our new Express Branch and Field Service Centre provide two significant offerings to local contractors,” said Ziesman. “By combining these two offerings, we’re creating a one-stop shop to meet all of our local customers’ needs.”
The Wolseley Industrial Hinton branch is open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, and will have on-call service available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Hinton Branch Manager, Phil Blackstock, has spent the past 20 years working in industrial positions across Alberta, giving him unique insight into the needs of Wolseley customers throughout the province. Blackstock joins Wolseley from Stream-Flo Industries, a manufacturer of gate valves, check valves, and wellhead and Christmas tree equipment, where he worked as an Inside Sales Representative.
