Chilliwack, BC-based Marlon Recreational Products broke ground this week on a new building in Stony Plane Alberta. Marlon currently has three locations – Chilliwack, BC, Acheson, AB and Winnipeg, MB.
“We have outgrown our current facility [in Acheson] and have decided to build a 9,000 square-foot office and warehouse on 1.5 acres of land we have. We realized early on that we would outgrow our Alberta facility, however our choice of facilities that provided good warehouse and outside storage was limited. We continued to look for a larger facility even after moving into our current location in March of this year. We have been unable to locate anything suitable so we have decided to build.
Cameron says the new location will have easy highway access, a large yard and a building design that will meet his company’s current needs. It will also allow Marlon Recreational Products the ability to expand the building if the need arises.
“Once completed the new facility will improve our efficiencies and allow us to better serve our dealers,” he adds. “At this time the plan is to have construction completed by March 2012.”
Marlon Recreational Products is a distributor for Karavan trailers, ShoreMaster docks and hoists, ATV and utility trailers, aluminum truck decks, inflatable boats, Jon boats, and utility boats.
