Techspan Industries Inc. of Mississauga Ontario Expands Portfolio, Acquiring 100% of the Shares of Pico Canada Ltd. Based in British Columbia

April 26, 2023

Ron Grieve, Owner of Pico, and Frank Dunnigan, CEO of Techspan Industries, are pleased to announce the sale of 100% of the shares of Pico to Techspan. The acquisition is effective immediately.

“After many years in the automotive wire accessory business, I had to look at a succession plan” said Mr. Grieve. “We looked for the right fit – not just for ourselves, but also for our customers, suppliers, and employees. Founded in 1989, Techspan is a family-owned Canadian company with a similar business philosophy and a set of corporate values that closely matched those of Pico. We couldn’t think of a better partner to carry the Canadian torch forward than Techspan.”

“We were looking for a strategic acquisition that would deliver more value to our distributors across the country,” said Mr. Dunnigan. “The extensive range of Pico products and their reputation for operational excellence with customers is perfectly aligned with Techspan. Our two companies, Canadian owned and totally committed to the Canadian market, will deliver exceptional results for all stakeholders going forward.”
