Toronto, Ontario — December 4, 2018 — The TED Group, a Winnipeg based automotive paint and supply specialist, has bought an independent automotive supply business, Can-West Supply.
The TED Group of companies includes Rondex, Canada Car Color, ABS Warehouse and now Can-West Supply, a small business that offers a comprehensive selection of clips, fasteners and other pbe products.
“Can-West Supply has operated from our national distribution centre in Winnipeg since 2017 and in that time, we’ve been in the perfect place to appreciate the significance of their current position. The fastener business is an important part of the industry and we are delighted to be able to promote and support it by investing in new initiatives which will bring greater synergies, even better service and an unrivalled choice of product selection” said Bret Greenwood, president of The TED Group.
“The acquisition is a huge deal for Can-West Supply. It’s a very positive move, which will put us in a strong position to develop the business within Canada. We have worked in partnership with The TED Group for some time, so it is very much business as usual. We will continue to operate as Can-West Supply, which has become a wholly owned subsidiary of The TED Group of Companies. Our customers day-to-day contacts for sales enquiries and technical support will remain the same,” said David Weselak, president of Can-West Supply.
Exceptional sales, service and support have earned The TED Group the elite status of being the largest independently owned and family operated jobber in western Canada.
