WHD Canada was formed in 2005, by a dedicated team of fluid power specialists who had been operating in the industry since 1972. The vision for WHD Canada is to focus on the sale of fluid power products — serving as a bridge between U.S. manufacturers and Canadian distributors.
WHD Canada specializes in products for the mobile market, particularly the heavy duty trucking, automotive, and agricultural industries. Our products also support the mining, forestry, and waste management sectors. We pride ourselves on superior customer service, next day shipping, and industry-leading fill rates.
A Bridge Between Distributors & Manufacturers
Fluid power systems are technical products, demanding a high degree of familiarity and servicing experience. With 45 years in the industry, the team at WHD Canada is here to help both manufacturers and distributors succeed in the fluid power market within Canada.
Historically, the Canadian fluid power market has been controlled by smaller, local distributors — due to the necessity of going off-site for repairs or servicing. It has been an ongoing challenge for larger suppliers to compete in the fluid power space, owing to the technical complexity of the product.
However, over the past decade, WHD Canada has assisted a number of suppliers establish and grow their fluid power programs in this challenging space. By leveraging the support of our experienced team, WHD distribution partners have been enabled to supply products from U.S. manufacturers (such as Eaton and BrakeQuip) and capture a larger share of regional markets.
If you are a U.S. or international fluid power manufacturer, who is not achieving sales penetration in Canada, then we can help. Our extensive network of distributors and experienced support team make it simple to operate in the Canadian market. If you want to start growing your organization’s presence and market share in Canada, consider becoming a WHD manufacturing partner.
