Nokian to open warehouse in Quebec.
Nokian Tyres North America is opening a distribution center in Longueuil, near Montreal, to provide more expedient service to customers in Quebec.

“This new location will increase our capacity and efficiency in North America and shows our commitment to Quebec, one of our largest and most important markets,” said Tommi Heinonen, president of Nokian Tyres North America, the Colchester, Vt.-based subsisiary of Finland’s Nokian Tyres P.L.C.
