Press Release from A52 Warehouse

A52 Warehouse Inc. is pleased to announce Dakine as a new partner. Dakine, who's name originates from the Hawaiian Pidgin word ‘da kine’ (derived from ‘the kind’), has a commitment to innovation and developing premium products in the action sports industry. Starting Summer 2014, A52 Warehouse will supply Dakine with 3rd party logistic services to the Canadian market.

“Dakine is the type of organization that we look to partner with. Their products and values align with ours and we look forward to a long term relationship with them.” Said Sean Miller, A52’s Business Development Manager. “Adding to Dakine’s established presence, A52’s exceptional logistics experience will ensure the on-time delivery of their products to retailers across Canada.”

“When we set out to find a new 3PL for Canada we were looking for an organization that had both the technical skill to get the job done as well as a complete understanding of our business needs,” said Chris Vaday, Dakine’s Canadian Sales Manager. “We see a true commitment from A52 to work with us to insure top level support to our customers. We are very confident in the team at A52 and look forward to working with them to achieve the goals we have setup for the future of Dakine.”

A52’s transparency, flexibility and drive to over deliver are key characteristics that will ensure on time execution for both Dakine and their customers in Canada. Even though Summer 2014 will be the first season for Dakine and A52, the goal will be to start building a strong foundation immediately to deliver a custom solution that will benefit everyone involved.
