Tenaquip acquires Northern Industrial Sales

Tenaquip Limited, an industrial supplier headquartered in Montreal with distribution warehouses in Calgary and Vancouver, purchased the assets of Alberta-based Northern Industrial Sales.

“The acquisition is an exciting opportunity for Northern Industrial Sales as we continue to push forward and grow the NIS brand in northwestern Canada,” says Rob Sasseville, managing director of sales and operations. “When you add the value that Tenaquip brings to the table in terms of volume, expertise, logistics, and e-commerce, it positions NIS and the Tenaquip Group of Companies as one of the leading industrial and safety suppliers servicing Canada coast to coast.”

Based in Edmonton, Alberta, Northern Industrial Sales was acquired by NorTerra Inc. in 2007 and was previously known as Northern Metalic Sales. NIS has been in business servicing the north for over 68 years. “We will continue our focus in the north and the west, as we’ve developed strong business relationships and strong business roots,” says Sasseville.
