Harden and Walmart Canada to build a fulfillment centre in Quebec
A new ±457,000 square foot Walmart fulfillment centre, manufactured by Harden and Walmart Canada, is coming to Quebec. Located in Vaudreuil-Dorion, the building is part of Harden’s new industrial park, Le Campus Henry Ford, with Walmart Canada as its first tenant.The new facility, currently slated to open in 2024, will be powered by cutting-edge logistics technology. According to the developers, the building will be capable of shipping 20 million items annually from the facility to local customers, and store 500,000 items to fulfil direct to home and in-store pickup orders.
“We’re extremely excited to be working with Walmart on this project” said Tyler and Chris Harden, Co-Chief Executive Officers of Harden. “This fulfillment centre is a testament to the commitment and belief Walmart Canada has to the market of Vaudreuil-Dorion and to the province of Quebec. We are thrilled to see this market flourish as a logistic hub and continue to be rooted by our values of continued growth in the communities we work in.”
“This important investment is the latest example of Walmart’s commitment to Quebec,” said Cyrille Ballereau, Walmart Canada Regional Vice President for Quebec. “We are investing for growth in Quebec and creating jobs for Quebecers to better serve our customers. Quebecers will see refreshed stores, quicker service and more options available in-store and online. When Quebecers choose Walmart, they are choosing to support a retailer that supports Quebecers.”
Le Campus Henry Ford features five additional buildings to be constructed and available rental spaces totalling approximately 500,000 square feet for prestige and logistic uses, with a specific focus on fulfillment and distribution centres.
“We know these are challenging times for our customers. That’s why we are proud to be making significant investments in Canada to deliver the very best shopping experience,” said JP Suarez, Executive Vice President, Chief Administration Office and Regional CEO for Walmart International, who is also leading Walmart Canada on an interim basis. “We are building a better Walmart Canada to help more Canadians save money and live better. As the cost of living rises, Canadians can trust Walmart to be that convenient, one-stop shop for everyday low prices.”
