ACE Canada and the Sexton Group Ltd are pleased to announce the new Maple Ave ACE Hardware in Medicine Hat, Alberta has chosen to align with us and gain the advantages extended to independent hardware and lumber dealers through our Strategic Alliance.

The Sexton Group and ACE Canada Strategic Alliance was formalized and publicly announced in November 2020, with full collaborative terms taking effect January 1, 2021. At the core of the alliance is a joint supply agreement providing the opportunity for all ACE dealers and/or Sexton Group members to benefit from expanded and improved product selection, distribution and other services that only two innovative and exceptional leaders in their own areas of expertise could bring to the table in a combined offering.

This incredible new store will bring together everything ACE Canada and the Sexton Group has to offer and demonstrates the belief shown by these independent dealer owners in the solid opportunity this program represents. We welcome ‘Maple Ave’ to the ACE Canada brand and believe the groundwork is in place for a long, healthy and successful business relationship.” - Damian Zapisocky, Senior VP, Corporate and Strategic Development, Peavey Industries LP - ACE Canada

This is a new and exciting brand for our area and I am sure our community will love the variety of items we will offer in our garden centre, our lumber yard, our barbeque area or just in our store itself.
