MAAX Expands Distribution

Sainte-Marie, Quebec MAAX, the manufacturer of bathroom, spa and kitchen products based here, has opened a pair of distribution centers in Western Canada, the company announced.

According to MAAX, the two new centers in Airdrie, Alberta and Langley, British Columbia each feature corporate showrooms. The center at Airdrie consists of a 45,000-sq.-ft. warehouse facility, while the Langley distribution center is 18,000 sq. ft., MAAX said.

The location of the facilities, noted company executive v.p. Marie-France Poulin, is "key" to the expansion plans of MAAX throughout western Canada and the northwestern United States.

"These will be the most impressive product showrooms in the industry, and by far the largest in western Canada for bathroom fixture manufacturers housed under the same roof," Poulin said, noting that the showrooms will be open to the public, and will showcase more than 75 separate products.
