A Brief History

Cichlid Wholesale Ltd. Began on Vancouver Island, BC, in 1990, as a full line pet product distributor servicing Western Canada. As a result of steady growth, in 1992 the company moved to larger facilities in Nanaimo, BC. In 1995, anticipating a test for echo, the company realised it could provide faster, more effective service by positioning itself in a centralized location with Western Canada, and as a result moved to Calgary, AB. In 2001 Cichlid expanded again and moved to a new warehouse facility with four times the space, this was followed in 2006 with another expansion of warehouse space to the current location.

These expansions have allowed Cichlid to become a more service friendly operation. The company now offers retail customers the ability to visit, by appointment, during operation hours. In addition, it provides the space to present “Open House Trade Shows”, and to house a Show Room for promoting and highlighting products lines in a setting that best suits customer needs.
