September 1, 2020
Langley, B.C.: Megapro is pleased to announce that its first-ever shipment to Costco has been completed. They put together over 25,000 screwdriver sets which is enough drivers to put a pallet in every store across Canada, plus a few extras for replenishment.
The Costco buyer decided to feature the world-famous Megapro Ratcheting 13 in 1, manufactured locally at PH Molds in Pitt Meadows, and a custom 8 in 1 Megapro manufactured in the USA, featuring an exclusive bit load. Megapro stands behinds its products 100 per cent and offers a hassle-free Lifetime Warranty on all of its screwdrivers.
Hermann Fruhm, the owner and CEO of Megapro says “We are thrilled at this opportunity with Costco and we are confident that Costco shoppers will see the value in this special offer”. He goes on to explain that this was no small feat. For a small sized business, Megapro and its partners had to go through rigorous audits and quality control checks to ensure the Costco standards were being met.
“It took a tremendous amount of planning, coordinating, and trouble-shooting to get this order out the door,” says Alicia O’Brien, the General Manager at Megapro, “We couldn’t have done it without our incredible team and partners.”
The screwdrivers have been packaged, and shipped to their various locations across Canada as of last Friday. The Megapro sets should be available at Costco by later this week, so hurry in to get yours. They won’t last.
