Spicers Canada Acquires Shippers Supply

November 13, 2017  By PrintAction Staff

In a move to expand its product mix throughout Western Canada, Spicers Canada, a division of Central National Gottesman Inc., has acquired Shippers Supply. Expected to close by the end of November 2017, the acquisition gives Spicers Canada a stronger position in the distribution of shipping, packaging and warehouse supplies in the region.

Privately owned and headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, Shippers Supply operates nine locations throughout Western Canada, and has supplied corrugated boxes, labels, tape, stretch film, shelving, packaging supplies and warehouse equipment to the region since 1975.  

“The acquisition of Shippers Supply is another critical step forward in many product categories we want to grow throughout our North American distribution business,” said Andrew Wallach, CNG President and Chief Executive Officer.

Spicers Canada President Cory Turner added that the acquisition of Shippers Supply fits with his organization’s strategy to leverage its significant distribution capabilities in new ways. “The opportunity to acquire Shippers Supply adds significant capabilities and expertise that will be invaluable in meeting our company’s market strategy,” said Turner. “Extending product solutions both inside and outside of our core markets creates immediate opportunities that align well with our growth initiatives.”

Shippers Supply will operate as an independent division of Spicers Canada, working the organization’s existing operations and distribution network in Western Canada.
