Univar SolutionsUnivar Solutions Inc. has begun construction on a new custom-designed facility in Abbotsford, BC.

The facility is expected to open during the first half of 2023 and aligns with the company’s long-term sustainability commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, Univar says. With the goal of offering energy-efficient technology and compliance through the latest emission standards as well as innovative logistic and storage strengths, the facility will also include a whole-site tank telemetry system for real-time product inventory.

“Central to our Growing Together strategy is our customer, and the new Abbotsford facility will improve our ability to quickly and safely deliver products when and where they are needed with minimal carbon footprint, making us easier to do business with and helping us fulfill our purpose to keep communities healthy, fed, clean and safe,” says Chris Halberg, Vice-President of Local Chemical Distribution for Univar Solutions in Canada. “We’re excited to build-on our leading position in the British Columbia market with more growth opportunities for our suppliers to meet local customer needs.”

The company hopes the new facility will deliver a streamlined and efficient experience. With larger chemical and ingredient storage as well as rail capacity and specially designed blending rooms for solvents, corrosives and oxidizers, the facility is designed with the principles of the company’s sustainability commitments embedded throughout, which will help make blending more efficient, while reducing the risk of incidents through the latest engineering controls, Univar says.

“In addition to the many customer, supplier and sustainability benefits, employees will appreciate the efficient design and digital investments at the Abbotsford facility that will make it easier for them to do their jobs with safety top of mind at every step,” says Halberg.
