Hydrapak Develops New Distribution Network in Canada


Oakland, CA - Thanks to rapidly increasing demand for its innovative and functional hydration systems, Hydrapak is growing its presence in Canada as it enters a new era of expansion.

To address burgeoning business at the retail level, Hydrapak has established a warehousing and distribution relationship with A52 Warehousing of Langley, British Columbia. The facility will handle direct deliveries from suppliers in Asia and distribute to retailers in Canada.

The new distribution facility in Canada supports an increasing demand for Hydrapak products and lays the groundwork for continued growth and global operational efficiencies.

“Our retail partners in Canada will appreciate exceptional service from A52’s logistics expertise,” explains David Kim, Director of Operations at Hydrapak. “Hydrapak’s Canadian business stands to benefit greatly from A52’s logistic experience and management."

Working in concert with Hydrapak and A52 are two Canadian sales agencies who are cementing the presence of the brand in retailers across the country.

In eastern Canada Hydrapak will be represented by Stephan Morin Sports. Sasso Vertical Sales is responsible with developing and servicing accounts in western Canada. Both agencies are charged with opening new doors and providing excellent service to existing accounts such as Canada’s largest volume Hydrapak dealer Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC).

Continuously innovating from its technical expertise in designing and building specialized hydration products, Hydrapak is steadily building out their product lines. The line includes award-winning SoftFlasks, unique collapsible Stash bottles and hydration reservoirs in multiple styles and sizing. Hydrapak partners with companies in the outdoor and tactical markets providing leading brands such as Patagonia, Salomon, EVOC, and Dakine with the most advanced solutions for hydration on the go.
