Our History

Unifor Local 584 dates back to 1944 when the depot first opened in Toronto. In 1964 the Ford Motor Company decided to move the operation to Bramalea. Today Ford Bramalea distributes 50,000 unique auto parts to approximately 400 dealerships across Canada, either directly or through Leduc, Edmonton depot.
