Canusa Automotive Warehousing Inc. (Canusa) is a full line warehouse distributor, offering over 425 different product lines to our customers, including undercar, under hood, chemicals, tools and workshop equipment, plus a wide range of performance related parts. The company carries over 128,000 active part numbers in its inventory.
Canusa was established in March of 1981. Initially, the company operated as an undercar warehouse specializing in the sale of ‘Alternative Branded’ exhaust systems and related components that were sold to the specialty muffler installer. Canusa’s expertise in undercar product lines attracted customers from across Ontario and the Midwestern United States. Over the years, the company’s business has evolved to a full line automotive warehouse distribution business with automotive parts coverage across all major product groups.
In 1998 Canusa became an ACDelco distributor and part of an elite group of warehouse distributors designated to sell this storied brand in major markets in Southwestern Ontario and the G.T.A. Since then ACDelco and their related programs have grown into the largest and most comprehensive lines for the company.
Since the introduction of ACDelco, Canusa has added a large number of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) suppliers to its product offering including NGK/NTK, Bosch, Delphi, Schrader, Prestolite, Total Lubricants, and Osram Sylvania. The company goal is to continue to grow OEM availability to the aftermarket.
Canusa continues to specialize in undercar product lines, particularly exhaust, but has also established a network of jobber part stores under the APC Auto Parts Centres banner in Southwestern and Central Ontario including the Niagara peninsula. The company currently has over 45 Corporate and Associate jobber store locations situated in key markets, selling to the local installer-based customer.
