Univar, a global chemical and ingredient distributor and provider of value-added services, announced the launch of a new Canadian e-commerce platform. Known as MyUnivar.com, the platform offers a product catalog of over 10,000 industrial chemical and food ingredient products to new and existing customers for online purchase. Product offerings span massive Canadian industries such as energy, forestry, water treatment, pharmaceuticals and more. In addition to online purchases, customers can access safety documents and documentation of prior purchases.
Univar operates the largest distribution network of its kind in Canada and in recent years, has seen demand increase for online purchasing capabilities, similar to the online purchasing trends seen in the consumer retail space. The MyUnivar.com platform first launched across the US in October 2017, resulting in a steady climb of online orders over the past 11 months.
"The next generation of buyers, supply chain professionals and purchasing leads expect the same convenience and ease of access they experience on consumer ecommerce sites," says Univar Canada president, Mike Hildebrand. "At Univar, it is our vision to be the most valued chemical and ingredient distributor in the world, and we are committed to protecting our position as the preferred distribution partner in Canada. It is also our goal to be the number one destination for digital content and commerce in our industry, and that means ensuring we have the best digital experience to meet the demands of our customers and the industry."
