‘Unique items’: Decorative plumbing products bursting out of this Milton business

Riptide specializes in decorative plumbing products

Ever wondered how a fancy bathroom sink could safely ship to your home after an online purchase?

There’s a new business in Milton that specializes in just that, and much more.

Riptide is Canada’s first master distribution company focused on the fulfillment of decorative plumbing products (ie. faucets, toilets, bathtubs, etc.).

The business, which is located at 8300 Parkhill Dr., serves the eCommerce world as well as supporting plumbing wholesalers from across Canada. Kohler is its primary brand, along with Franke, Kindred, Delta and Moen. They ship business to business, for Amazon, Wayfair and wholesale.

The 56,800 sq.-ft. warehouse features 32-foot ceilings, which allow forklift operators to access some 4,000 different SKUs in 17,000 bin locations.

• Same day shipping, on orders placed by 4 p.m.

• Widest assortment of products, stocking what others don’t

• Ultimate brand partnership, carefully selected, world-class brands to provide customers with the best quality and style.

“Our ability to fill orders for unique items within hours is a game-changer for the plumbing industry,” said general manager Siân Smith.

Why Riptide? Riptides are dynamic; they can change direction quickly. The team at Riptide promises to respond to the evolving needs of its customers, she explained.

Using state-of-the-art shipping products, such as the smart bagger that expands to surround delicate items, none of the products they’ve shipped since opening earlier this year has been returned damaged.
