National Event Supply (NES), a division of D & K Imports, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, last week entered a strategic alliance with Locher Evers International, which will allow National Event Supply to start warehousing and distributing select products from the Locher Evers International warehouse in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
"Starting just after the Civic Holiday weekend in August 2012, National Event Supply will begin warehousing select NES blow-mold folding tables, NES wood folding tables, NES plastic folding chairs, and NES wedding-style resin folding chairs at Locher Evers' warehouse in Vancouver for distribution across western Canada," said Dennis Heathcote, co-president, National Event Supply.
"As time goes by, we hope to increase the number of products lines offered from our new location in Vancouver," Heathcote said.
Ron Gray, vice president, warehousing and operations, Locher Evers International, said, “We are excited that National Event Supply has chosen to warehouse some of their folding tables and folding chair product lines with us in Vancouver. We have been working with them for the past year in Toronto and are eager to continue to help them grow their business across Canada.”
National Event Supply also has signed a strategic sales agreement with A.E. Sales Group, Vancouver, to provide customer service to its customers across western and eastern Canada.
Tony Shelling, managing director, A.E. Sales, said, “We are excited that National Event Supply will be stocking products in Vancouver. We often have sales opportunities where customers are unable to wait for the products to be shipped from Toronto. Even though National Event Supply offers competitive pricing and shipping from Toronto, the warehouse in Vancouver will significantly improve our ability to provide great service and delivery times for our British Columbia and Alberta customers while dramatically reducing shipping costs.”
