CURT Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer and marketer of towing products, recently began operations in Edmonton, Alberta. According to a press release, this is the first and only factory-operated, full-line trailer hitch and towing accessories distribution center in Alberta. For CURT, the facility represents the second distribution center serving Canada.
CURT said the new facility encompasses 25,000 square feet with about 1,500 square feet in office space along with four bay doors and a customer pickup ramp. The facility utilizes a state-of-the-art RF (radio frequency) tracking system, which ensures fast and accurate order selection. It also utilizes Nordson hot melt adhesive and instapak foam packaging which ensures that boxed CURT hitches are tightly packed and will arrive to the customer undamaged.

An open house was held in early March at the new facility in Edmonton.
