Lynds was founded in 1983 as a small distributor of fasteners to the heavy truck industry and Provincial DOT branches in Nova Scotia. Originally located in the Central Equipment building on the Lower Truro Road in Truro, Nova Scotia the Company grew quickly because of a reputation for excellent service and extensive stock levels. After only a few years the company had outgrown its original location and moved to its current location at 91 Polymer Road in the Truro Industrial Park. The building has gone through three expansions and now has 12,000 sq. ft. of showroom and warehouse space. From this location the business services both large and small industrial and Government accounts in mainland Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.
In 2011, E. Lynds was purchased by Casey Concrete in partnership with Bob Brown, the current General Manager. This purchase has provided E Lynds with a solid corporate backing and renewed emphasis on growth and business development. Since the new ownership Lynds has installed a new Inventory Management and POS system to manage the 25,000 product SKU’s carried in stock. This system allows E Lynds to provide improved service to their customers and to be prepared for the new growth opportunities ahead.
