McCowan Design and Manufacturing, Canada’s leading manufacturer and supplier of innovative, modular merchandising systems, service counters and point-of-sales display products to the gas bar, convenience store and food service industries, is pleased to announce that it is now under new management and ownership.  Last December, McCowan was acquired by an affiliate company of Wilson Display Limited, one of Canada’s largest store fixture manufacturers.

McCowan will operate as a separate business unit and its dedicated team of professionals will focus on its commitment to its customers, old and new, from large national chains that are looking to enhance brand image and sales, to independents that need help with store layout and merchandising display solutions.  McCowan will also continue to provide the industry with high quality, modular paypoint and service counters, specialty fixtures, shelving systems, forecourt merchandisers, security cabinets, tobacco display ban solutions, waste units and signage.  McCowan Design and Manufacturing is the only company in the marketplace that provides a complete package, from concept to completion…one stop shopping.

McCowan’s new relationship with Wilson now gives it access to a wider variety of quality products and services, including design and engineering, inventory management, global sourcing, logistics and installation of larger roll-outs.  Wilson Display is the Canadian partner of Leggett & Platt Store Fixture Group, based in the United States.

“We look forward to building a larger and stronger store fixture group through the addition of McCowan.  Both companies will mutually benefit from this affiliation through expanded capabilities and resources.  Over the many decades of successful business, McCowan and Wilson have demonstrated a deep commitment to serve retailers and we will continue to strengthen this tradition.  Together, we will build our strong presence in North America; we see an opportunity for many years of growth for both companies,” said Frank Ruffolo, President of Wilson Display.

McCowan Design and Manufacturing is ready to serve your needs.
