Burlington, Ontario (PRWEB) June 16, 2012
Elreg Distributors Ltd. is proud to celebrate 32 successful years in business. The company started off selling regulator and component parts for alternators (such as the 24 volt alternator) to local automotive electrical rebuilders. Thirty-two years later the company is now distributing alternators, starters and related component parts for industrial, transit and heavy duty applications all over the world.
In 1985 Otto Bock and Richard Zirger founded Elreg Distributors Ltd. to fill the need in the marketplace to serve small rebuilders of automotive alternators and starters in Toronto, Ontario Canada. Since Electronic (EL) Regulators (REG) were the first products supplied to customers, this is where the name ELREG came from.
Throughout the 1980s aftermarket product sales grew considerably as did the increasing requests for OEM products (Original Equipment Manufactured products) such as Bosch alternators. It was this demand that pushed Elreg to become a qualified Bosch and Leece-Neville distributor.
During the 1990s the company focused on the growing demand for heavy-duty industrial equipment and expanded its inventory to provide services and products to customers in this industry, which specializes in coach and transit buses as well as larger on and off-road vehicles.
Due to the increase in demand the team at Elreg realized the importance of formalizing documentation and processes and so the company decided to work towards ISO certification. Elreg Distributors Ltd. officially became ISO certified in 1994.
As the demand for new, brand name, high quality products continued Elreg became an authorized warehouse Delco Remy distributor in 1997, and from 2000 – 2004 C.E. Niehoff, Lucas, Iskra and Nikko all became OEM products offered by Elreg. In 2009 Elreg added Denso and Mitsubishi to this list, which means that the company can supply alternators and starters for all industrial and heavy-duty equipment, quite an accomplishment in this large marketplace.
In 2004 Elreg expanded to offer clients on-site technical support which led to on-premise assembly of specialty products.
Today, Elreg Distributors Ltd. provides a wide variety of quality starter and heavy duty alternator products for industrial, heavy duty equipment. As a leading distributor for various alternators and starters, customers today have come to rely on Elreg for specialized equipment including high quality boat starters and other marine equipment.
In the future, Elreg Distributors is looking to continue to expand into the international market, focusing on a number of industries that apply to all international clients, including light duty commercial; snow plow, salters and lift gates; marine; heavy duty, off-road and industrial; aerial lift and material handling; commercial trucking and refrigeration; transit bus and highway; school bus and shuttle buses; EMS, fire and ambulance. For now, Elreg plans to meet part of this international demand with their new Elreg Spanish website designed to better meet the language needs of the company’s international market.
Elreg Distributors Ltd. would like to congratulate its team members and thank them for their dedication and hard work as the company celebrates its 32nd anniversary and looks forward to many more as they continue to work together to meet the challenges and demands of an ever changing market.
