Making tracks for the future

130,000 sq.ft on 15-acres
2010: new warehouse opens
130,000: that’s the square footage of the new secure, climate-controlled warehouse Paddock opened in 2010, complete with state-of-the-art inventory management and tracking system. The warehouse sits on the 15-acre site in Stoney Creek—Paddock’s third home in more than 50 years—where the company has consolidated its warehousing, logistics and trucking services. It’s an ideal location less than one hour from the border.
smartway program partner
Paddock has been a partner in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s innovative Smartway program since 2009, benchmarking its environmental performance, tracking fuel consumption and making annual improvements.
giving back feels good
corporate citizen of the year award
Stoney Creek named Paddock its 2004 Corporate Citizen of the Year. From being the founding sponsor of the Stoney Creek Girls’ Hockey Association in 1972 (and a supporter to this day) to loaning our trucks for community parades and hauling fresh daffodils cross-country for the Canadian Cancer Society, Paddock is proud to give back—from coast to coast.
a one-stop shop
Customers are looking for a one-stop shop for complex, multi-modal, cross-border just-in-time deliveries. Paddock responded in 1998 with our logistics service, ensuring comprehensive support to customers and rapid movement of freight.
A NEW HOME IN STONEY CREEK
Paddock consolidated its two locations at a new home in Stoney Creek in 1997: a seven-acre site within 50 miles of the Canada-U.S. border, with 13,000 square feet of indoor space, a secure yard and a 20-door cross-dock.
In 1986, Paddock became one of the first firms in North America to use satellite tracking on their trucks to monitor the progress of customers’ freight.
In 1962, Paddock became a pioneer in cross-border shipping, starting a relationship with International Iron and Metal that would last for more than 40 years and breaking with the common practice of cargo being passed from one carrier to another at the Canada-U.S. border.
