Their products are available through their 36 locations in Canada with a facility in every province but Quebec, and their products are sold there as well.
Additionally, they are the largest commercial fleet installation network in the country.
Chamberlaine said 55 people work at the Moncton location now housing a distribution centre, truck fleet operations, deliveries to retail centres, a national call centre, a retail facility and corporate head offices. Moncton is also the site of the firm’s e-commerce store’s head office.
