The folks at E.B. Horsman & Son are extremely happy to announce that their Victoria location will be officially moving to a bigger, better location July 25, 2022.
The new 12,000 square foot building is located at 3250 Tennyson Ave, just a two-minute drive away from the current location on the corner of Cloverdale Ave and Blanshard Street. The new facility features a 28-foot clear height ceiling, a larger open concept counter service area, 22 parking spots, two EV chargers, as well as a dock and grade-level loading areas; all of which will allow E.B. to better serve the Capital Regional District.
The expanded Victoria branch will also provide more office and boardroom space for the Victoria branch customer service team and the company’s local technical specialists for Automation & Controls, Process Instrumentation, Lighting Solutions, Data Communications, Power Distribution and our growing Major Projects Victoria team.
Tim Horsman, President and CEO of E.B. Horsman & Son commented, “It is very exciting that we can provide a new, more operationally efficient location which demonstrates our long-term commitment to the Greater Victoria area to service the customer base. This new location will also be better equipped to support and provide same-day delivery to our other four Vancouver Island branches located in Duncan, Parksville, Courtenay, and Campbell River.”
Tyson Carvell, VP of Marketing, adds: “It has always been our goal to provide our Greater Victoria customers with a convenient location where they can quickly and easily access all products and services they need without the uncertain delivery times common with off-island distributors. To do so, this location will be replenished daily, and now with the ability to put in high racking, we will be able to stock more products locally to ensure that we can meet the demands of the growing and dynamic Victoria marketplace.”
E.B. Horsman & Son (EBH) returned to the Victoria market in 2013 by acquiring Albrite Lighting. Albrite continues to operate as a lighting brand of EBH that focuses on providing lighting products and services to such markets as Retail, Hospitality, Property Management and Eldercare.
Tim Horsman concludes: “E.B. Horsman & Son has a longstanding history and love of Vancouver Island. The south island is a vibrant and growing region in which we are committed to being “The Electrical Distributor of Choice!”
