Bartle & Gibson expands reach in western Canada

Wholesale distributor Bartle & Gibson has struck a deal to acquire the assets of Triangle Supply Ltd., a supplier of plumbing and heating products in Red Deer, Alta., and surrounding areas. The deal allows Edmonton-based Bartle & Gibson to build on the 30 locations it has across Alberta, British Columbia and Northwest Territories. The agreement, which is due to close at the end of the year, will see all of Triangle Supply’s 14 employees join Bartle & Gibson, with president Gerald Halford continuing in his current role to ensure a smooth transition.
