QUEBEC CITY, February 8, 2016 – Tingley Rubber Corporation, a leading provider of protective footwear and clothing, is expanding into Canada to provide its range of unique protective solutions to a growing and dynamic market. Tingley has opened a sales office in Quebec City that will provide bilingual customer service and marketing support. A new distribution center in Brampton, ON, will serve as the supply hub for all products. Tingley is also proud to announce that Defender Sales Agency, an independent sales force, has been selected to drive sales across Canada.
“Geographic expansion is critical to Tingley’s growth strategy and it’s only natural to have a strong presence in Canada. Our range of products offer unmatched comfort, performance and protection – as demonstrated for the past 120 years,” said Mike Zedalis, president of Tingley.
Initially, Tingley plans to roll out its full line of industrial apparel and non-safety waterproof footwear. Additional high visibility and safety footwear products will be available in the third quarter of 2016.
