ACQUIRES AIR-IT-ON

B

issett Fasteners Limited is
pleased to announce that
it has completed the acquisition of Air-it-On Inc., based in
Edmonton, Alberta.
Air-It-On is an industry leader in the Western Canadian construction supply market. The Company was founded in 1989 by
industry-leading professionals and currently operates locations in
Edmonton and Calgary. Air-It-On offers a wide variety of different
construction supplies including, wholesale fasteners, building envelope
components, fire protection products, air tools, adhesives, and more.
The Company has its origins in and still caters to the majority of the
relocatable structure market in Alberta.
Founded by Mr. Lance Bissett in 1929, Bissett Fasteners has grown
from a single location in Vancouver to Canada's largest privately-held
distributor of construction fasteners and related accessories for professional users. Still headquartered in Vancouver, Bissett has 11 locations
across the country from British Columbia to Nova Scotia. In 2015,
Bissett acquired the assets of Canadian Industrial Distributors ("CID")
based in Brampton, Ontario, a move that allowed the Western based
Bissett to create a national platform servicing customers from coast to
coast with locations in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario,
Quebec, and Nova Scotia.
This acquisition further strengthens the Company's presence in the
industrial markets in Western Canada, particularly in the relocatable
structure segment. Mr. Brian Sykes, President and one of the two
shareholders of Air-it-On, is retiring concurrent with closing and his
partner Mr. Roger Sykes, has agreed to work with Bissett under a short
term contract to assist with the integration of the two businesses. The
employees of Air-it-On have joined the Bissett team and the operations
of the two Air-it-on locations in Alberta will be integrated into Bissett's
existing locations in Calgary and Edmonton.
