EiKO, a manufacturer and distributor of premium lighting products, is expanding its Canadian operations with a new distribution facility opening soon in Calgary, Alberta.EiKO new facility.jpg

The expansion results from year over year success that EiKO has experienced within the Global market and in particular, Canada. Building upon that success, they have made the decision to expand to better serve their distribution partners in Western Canada.

The new facility with 13,000 square feet of warehouse space will be fully operated by EiKO staff. In fact, to ensure that the new facility and operation was successful some of EiKO’s experienced staff have relocated from Ontario.

David’s expertise in EiKO’s operations and understanding of product demand and distribution will allow our new facility to seamlessly enter in to our distribution stream and ensure the facility operates according to EiKO’s high standards, said Stephen Lee, General Manager of EiKO’s Canadian division.

We have experienced great success in Heidi’s Ontario region and we are confident the same will be seen in BC as well, said Greg Cober, National Sales Manager.

The relocation by David and Heidi is a testament to the devotion and efforts of EiKO staff to ensure the company’s continued success and the development of the new facility and distribution channels in Western Canada.

The opening of the new facility will bring an abundance of advantages to EiKO’s partners. Allowing next day delivery, a decrease in prepaid levels, and an increase in inventory. EiKO recognizes the importance of inventory and works to ensure it stays ahead of trends and new products.

The facility is adding an additional 20,000 square feet of warehouse space and is expected to be completed by November 2018. As mentioned, EiKO has seen rapid expansion in recent years, in large part due to a constantly growing sales force, support from strong manufacturer representatives within the industry, and quality products. The expansion of the Barrie facility will allow EiKO to better serve its devoted customer base in Central and Eastern Canada and the increase in demand for EiKO products in these areas.

Today we are all concerned with the energy we consume within our homes. But how many truly understand the ins and outs of home energy use, and where exactly does the electrician and the development of energy management systems come into play. There is much to consider when discussing home energy use. The consumer first off needs to be informed about energy use, how it is calculated and ultimately billed if they are to make changes to their energy consumption rates. But in terms of educating consumers does the residential electrician have a role? And beyond that are manufacturers developing products designed to help electricians and consumers better understand residential energy use? Throughout this article we will deal with each of these important questions.

Jeremy Herrington

Total Electrical Solutions was founded in 2013 by Jeremy Herrington in Quispamsis, on the outskirts of Saint John, New Brunswick. Since 2013 Jeremy has steadily grown Total Electrical Solutions in the residential, commercial and construction sectors. The growth is primarily the result of Jeremy’s customer first philosophy, plus his over 20 years of industry experience.

Jeremy grew up learning about the industry from his father who was an electrical contractor. Jeremy spent his early years helping and watching his father as a contractor and business owner. After high school Jeremy was, like many, not wholly aware of the course he wished to take and so he began an electrical apprenticeship at his father’s company.
