New location on Mount Lehman Road in west Abbotsford spans 20,000 square feet

After over two decades on Peardonville Road, Gescan is making its new home in Abbotsford on Mount Lehman Road.

The brand-new 20,000 square foot facility with 35-foot ceilings officially opens to the public on Monday (Aug. 9) and the first 50 customers who make an in-store purchase receive special prizes.

Gescan is an electrical supply company serving OEM, industrial, commercial, MRO and residential markets. They also offer electrical wire, home automation, wire connectors, commercial lighting, smart home devices, ballasts, lighting, and other electrical supplies.

Customers also have the ability to order items like cable connectors, wire lights, switch plugs, fuses, HVAC, fasteners, boxes and covers, tools, and more.

The new location is accessible off Highway 1 and features dock level doors, increased storage space, a large yard for improved efficiencies and additional customer parking. Gescan invested $1.5M in renovating and setting up the facilities, which they say now offers easier access for customers with an improved warehouse layout to find products quicker, as well as an enhanced product mix.

Gescan has over 60 years of industry experience and has 26 locations across Canada with over 275,000 square foot of inventory. Eight of those branches are in the Lower Mainland (North Vancouver, downtown Vancouver, Abbotsford, Surrey, Langley, Burnaby, Chilliwack and Coquitlam), one in Whistler and two on Vancouver Island.

The Gescan head office is located in Calgary, Alta. For more on the company, visit gescan.com.
