OWL Distribuution circa 1976

about owl

Established in 1973 OWL Distribution has worked diligently to become a leader in the distribution of building materials for both Ontario and Quebec. 


We've garnered this reputation by offering more than just logistics for product.  Our "value-added" approach to distribution offers market perspective as well as consultation for growing retail business.

We build strong vendor partnerships to ensure growth and presence of their product in the markets we serve.  This is accomplished by being very selective of those products that we offer both in terms of quality and demand.

OWL is a division of Gillfor Distribution Inc.  Gillfor is the parent company of OWL Distribution, Mcilveen Lumber Industries and Brown & Rutherford, which operate 5 distribution centers and reload facilities across Canada.  For more information about Gillfor please visit www.gillfor.com
