Alliance Adds Edmonton Location

October 1, 2012

Alliance Door Products Canada Inc. has purchased the assets of Summit Distributors Inc. and will be taking over Summit's distribution business in Edmonton, Alberta, effective November 5.  Summit will carry on business as usual in the interim period, officials note.

"Lynden Door and Alliance Door Products have had a strong relationship with Summit Distributors for many years now and this is really just the next logical step forward," says John Ridder, senior vice president.

"Alliance Door Products' Opening Opportunities phrase references the wealth of products and services we offer," Ridder continues. "With great brands like Lynden Door, Therma-Tru, Simpson Door and Stallion Door, as well as millwork products from Woodland in Winnipeg, we definitely can deliver the right door and millwork solution. Furthermore, our professional door pre-hanging shops in each location round out our offering and create a single source opportunity for our customers. Shared logistics with unified inventory management complete the Alliance picture."

Based in Lynden, Wash., Alliance Door Products shares the same ownership as Lynden Door. The distribution operation has U.S. locations in Portland, Ore., and Kent and Spokane, Wash. In Canada, there are Alliance branches in Abbotsford, British Columbia; Calgary, Alberta.; Winnipeg, Manitoba; and Southern Ontario.
