E.B. Horsman & Son closes Kitimat and Fort Nelson Locations

8th January 2018

After many years of serving the communities of Fort Nelson and Kitimat, due to the current economic environment, we have made the decision to close these two branches effective Friday, January 12, 2018.

As a long standing family business with locations in Northern B.C., we take the responsibility of the health of our team, the commitments we make to our customers and the communities we serve very seriously. We are working closely with our employees through this transition and will work to limit any customer service disruptions as we make our changes.

For our Fort Nelson customers, we will redirect all calls to our hub in Dawson Creek. Clint Shuman (Dawson Creek Branch Manager) and the Dawson Creek team will continue to cover the North East Region and provide excellent customer service from there.

For our Kitimat customers, we will redirect all calls to our hub in Terrace. Scott Foster (Terrace Branch Manager) and his Terrace team will continue covering the Kitimat market and provide excellent customer service from there.

Closing a branch is a serious and difficult decision to make. Please rest assured that even though we are closing our Fort Nelson and Kitimat branches we will remain highly active serving their customers and have high hopes to return when the timing is right. E.B. Horsman & Son is committed to Northern BC and we are planning ongoing investments in all northern regions in 2018.

If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Grant Creuzot, Northern B.C. District Manager or email
