BRAMPTON, Ontario, September 6, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — D&H Canada, a leading provider of consumer, midsize and SMB technologies to the North American channel, is proud to announce that it is increasing its investments in multiple areas as who celebrates his 15the anniversary. As part of these improvements, the company will be moving to an expanded and upgraded distribution center (DC) in the Vancouver area on September 6, 2022 to accommodate its continued extraordinary growth. The new facility offers double the storage space and improved logistics to help prepare D&H Canada’s business for the future, and incorporates environmentally sustainable practices.
September will also see the return of live tech conferences for D&H Canada, as their rebranded, in-person THREAD event is scheduled for September 15 in Mississauga. Along with this, D&H will engage its partners in a 15the Anniversary fundraiser for a Toronto area youth charity through the new D&H Canada Cares foundation.
Thanks to a strategic alignment of investments and D&H Canada’s strong focus on serving its partners, the company is also pleased to announce that it has achieved growth levels that are three times the rate of expansion of the overall market in Canada in a wide range of customer segments and product categories.

“Our ongoing investments are based on feedback from our partners and will continue into the coming year, even with the complexity of macroeconomic pressures that are evident in most industries,” said D&H Canada General Manager Michelle Biase. “Where other distribution companies are shrinking, we are doubling down.”
Fulfilling the “BFG” Prophecy

Through its latest activities and investments, the company is fulfilling its recent commitment to the “BFG” motto, as in D&H it is built for growth, generations and generosity.
