Brampton, Ontario – Hankook Tire Canada has officially opened its second Canadian distribution centre, located in Richmond, British Columbia. The new centre will support retailers and multiple distribution points in Western Canada.

“Hankook Tire experienced great success and a strong presence in Western Canada,” said Bill Hume, vice-president of Hankook Tire Canada. “We strategically chose the Vancouver region for our second distribution centre to better support our retail customers and distributors, expediting our time to market. This new distribution centre is an integral part of our growth strategy in Canada and part of our global long-term strategy to become the next-generation tire company.”

The new centre is the second expansion in the last two years, following the Canadian head office and distribution centre that opened in Brampton, Ontario in the spring of 2009.
