Canadian Electrical Wholesaler

Dec 17, 2018

GraybarThe 90,000 sq./ft facility is Graybar Canada’s largest branch and consolidates the Markham and Mississauga locations. To continue to serve the Mississauga area customers, Graybar Canada will be opening a counter pick-up location at 160 Brunel Road in early 2019.

“We’re very excited to open a new Graybar Canada branch in Vaughan,” says Brian Thomas, executive vice president and general manager. “The new facility is conveniently located and gives us better access to serve new and current customers. With our electrical, comm/data and automation specialists under one roof, we’re able to strengthen our ability to provide turnkey solutions.” 

Located near Highway 427 and 407, Graybar Canada Vaughan features a wire paralleling machine, a modern counter area and a large training room to host educational seminars on-site. “With our industry becoming more cohesive every day, it’s important we have a dedicated space to educate our staff and customers about new technologies,” says Thomas. “Our product knowledge, expertise and superior customer service are what set Graybar Canada apart from the competition.”

An official grand opening for the new Vaughan branch will be scheduled in the spring. 

Graybar Canada’s existing Mississauga counter at 5895 Whittle Road will remain open to serve customers until the move into the Brunel Road facility in early 2019.

Q4 GDPGrowth in real gross domestic product (GDP) slowed to 0.1% in the fourth quarter, owing to a decrease in business investment and weak international trade. These declines were offset by increased household spending. Final domestic demand edged up 0.2%, after rising 0.8% in the third quarter.

The annual growth rate of Canada's real GDP was 1.6% for 2019, a deceleration from the 2.0% growth in 2018. By comparison, real GDP in the United States increased 2.3%.

Éric DeschênesLine Goyette

A new figure at the head of the electrification business unit and ABB Canada, Éric Deschênes is not a newcomer to the electrical industry. A long journey that we have already highlighted by emphasizing his passion for finding practical solutions that optimize the adoption of technologies. We met with him recently to discuss his new leadership role at ABB Canada and his projects. First, he would like to point out that recent changes to ABB Canada’s structure, as elsewhere in the world, have been made to decomplex the customer relationship. “The corporate matrix has been lightened to get closer to the customer,” says Éric.
