Transit Auto Parts HQ Expansion On Target

The new facility will triple Transit’s surface area from 50,000 square feet to more than 150,000 square feet.

Transit Auto Parts announced its expansion project of the company’s headquarters in Levis, Quebec City, Canada, launched in June, is on target.

Construction of the expanded head office is underway and will triple Transit’s surface area from 50,000 square feet to more than 150,000 square feet to improve the functionality of its warehouse.

“We must think big and foresee how our area of expertise can gain in efficiency,” said Stephan Guay, president of Transit Auto Parts. “We want to remain competitive and even become the benchmark for the industry. For these reasons, we will automate and robotize our operations in the second phase of our expansion project. Making our work simpler, easier and more efficient is our ultimate goal,” he explains.

The work on the building is expected to be completed by November 2020, after which an adjustment period will be necessary to bring the operations to full capacity, said the company.

Project highlights include:

  • $18 million investment in the expansion;
  • Receiving and shipping areas, as well as the office space and cafeteria, will be renovated;
  • Planned hiring of more than 100 new employees;
  • Projected to increase revenues from $30 million to more than $100 million annually.
