value for our customers for more than half a century
Our company was founded
in 1959 in Saint John, New Brunswick as a division of J.D. Irving, Limited.
Though we're now one of
Atlantic Canada's leading business to business providers in the areas of
Apparel & Promotional Products, Alarm & Communications, Industrial
Supplies, Office Environments, Safety Supplies and Sanitation & Food
Service Supplies, we started out much more humbly with a focus on supplying
provisions to the shipping industry.
Gradually, we expanded
our areas of expertise and opened branch offices to better serve customers
across Atlantic Canada. In 2002, we purchased R&A Paper Products Ltd, which
formed the foundation of our new office in Sydney, Nova Scotia. In 2007, we
purchased Enviro Chemicals Ltd., significantly enhancing the capabilities of
our sanitation division. In 2011, we acquired Specialty Apparel in Mount Pearl,
Newfoundland, allowing us to offer our customers custom-manufactured Apparel
and expands our range to include all of Atlantic Canada. Finally, in 2019 we
acquired B & B Sales allowing us to increase our offering in Newfoundland
and add a new product line of Food Service supplies.
Chandler, our secret to success is that we consistently look after the needs of
our customers. Looking ahead, we intend to continue working hard every day to
be your supplier of choice.
