Rawlings Sporting Goods – Brantford, ON
Vicano Construction Limited originally built this building as a 49,000 sq. ft. multi-tenant industrial site. Shortly after completion Rawlings Canada moved their Canadian distribution centre into the building, and Vicano expanded the building to it’s current 66,000 sq. ft. area.
Every Rawlings product sold in Canada is shipped through the company’s national distribution centre on Savannah Oaks Drive in Brantford.
“We’ve been able to have tremendous cost savings as opposed to being in the big city,” Beatty said. “It’s just a perfect location for being cost-effective, functional and practical.” The distribution centre only uses energy efficient lightbulbs and has solar panels on the roof, which generate profit for the company while helping the environment” – Randy Beatty, Rawlings Canada General Manager
Along with its famed brand, Rawlings Canada distributes Worth, Miken and Gait Lacrosse products. Beatty credited support from Rawlings head office in St. Louis and independent Source for Sports dealers for establishing the company as a leader in the sporting goods industry.
