The innovative facility aligns with the company’s focus on its long-term commitment to net-zero emissions by 2050.

ABBOTSFORD – Univar Solutions LLC, a global solutions provider to users of specialty ingredients and chemicals, recently held their grand opening of the Company’s Abbotsford distribution facility.

The site, approximately 2.5 miles from the United States border, is strategically located near Univar Solutions’ facility in Pitt Meadows. Together, the two sites will support more growth opportunities for suppliers in the region and enhance the quick and safe delivery of products to customers in western Canada, with a reduced carbon footprint.

At the recent ceremonial ribbon cutting, Chris Halberg, senior regional vice president of Chemical Distribution for Univar Solutions in Canada, expressed his optimism about the enhanced services for customers and suppliers, with two Company locations in the area. “We are excited about the growth opportunities and modern capabilities afforded to us via this new facility. Designed with the principles of our sustainability commitments embedded throughout, our ability to deliver products more quickly and safely when and where they are needed will offer strategic efficiencies for our suppliers and customers.”

Abbotsford aligns with the Company’s long-term sustainability commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. The facility was designed with the goal of offering energy-efficient technology and compliance through the latest emission standards as well as innovative logistic and storage strengths. Implementing best practices was a key focus throughout the planning and building of the facility, which included more efficient and expanded chemical and ingredient storage, rail capacity, a whole-site tank telemetry system for real-time product inventory, and specially designed blending rooms for solvents, corrosives, and oxidizers.
