Lee Valley Tools opens auto-store distribution centre

Lee Valley Tools has opened an auto-store distribution centre in Carp, ON, a micro-fulfillment centre that will allow the retailer to consolidate 36,000 square feet of picking locations into 6,000 square feet, freeing up space to expand manufacturing. The structure will have 18,000 bin locations for storing Lee Valley products and 42 shuttles on top of the structure to retrieve products for warehouse pickers.


Through the implementation of technology, the company will work to elevate efficiency, strengthen market position, and augment job satisfaction and protection for core employees. As a result, the investment in modernizing operations will enhance business operations and production during peak shopping periods, reduce handling times and increase order efficiency.
