Keystone Western and Arctic Cat sign multi-year service agreement

Keystone Western and Arctic Cat sign multi-year service agreement


Winnipeg, MB Canada April 1, 2015 – A service performance agreement was recently signed between Keystone Western Inc., with head office and terminal facilities in Grande Pointe, MB., and Arctic Cat Inc. of Thief River Falls, MN., to provide single- source storage and distribution services to all Arctic Cat dealers across Canada.

“Our production growth and plans for 2015 required us to free up space to allow for plant expansion”, says Dave Paulson – Traffic Manager for Arctic Cat. “Keystone Western has been an excellent service provider for several years and with their warehousing facilities centrally located in Winnipeg, MB it made sense for us to move our Canadian dealer inventory there and have them distribute directly to our dealers”. He further added that a single – source solution will improve service and streamline communication for their Canadian dealers.

Norm Curtis, CEO and Owner of Keystone Western, states that the multi-year agreement has built in mutually agreed to KPI targets for on-time service performance and overall cost reduction. “To help ensure we achieve the results Arctic Cat is expecting from us we have invested in additional trailers, expanded our regional driver fleet, added additional yard and warehouse space and have dedicated customer service staff to build orders directly from their SAP system, schedule delivery dates and communicate directly with their dealers”.
