The long-time Manitowoc Cranes partner opened a new facility in the Halifax, Nova Scotia region, where its customer base has been consistently expanding.
The new state-of-the-art facility features expansive equipment and a roster of technical experts that will help support the company’s sales and support of Manitowoc crawler cranes, Grove mobile cranes, Potain self-erecting cranes and National Crane boom trucks.
Shawmut Equipment of Canada, one of Manitowoc Crane’s dealer partners for success in North America, has opened a new facility in Elmsdale, Canada, near Halifax in Nova Scotia. The new location will serve as the company’s Canadian headquarters, and comes as demand for its products and services has been constantly expanding in the region.
The new facility is cutting-edge for the crane and lifting industry, and features vast yard space, multiple repair bays equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment, two 10 USt overhead cranes, a large parts warehouse and expansive office space. It will offer crane and utility equipment sales and rentals, as well as parts and service support. The central location and proximity to the Halifax airport will allow for quick technician dispatch, as well as expedited shipping times for parts orders.
“We’re pleased to announce this new Shawmut Equipment location and we know that it will serve customers well, due to the sheer amount of demand we’ve been experiencing in the region,” said Joe Vergoni, president of Shawmut Equipment of Canada. “Owners of Manitowoc cranes can take special note that we have outfitted this facility with the latest and greatest technology, and we have an experienced team of experts available to support all of their sales and service needs.”
