By Belinda Smart20 January 2022
CanLift Equipment, a Canadian aerial equipment and material handling company, has partnered with global manufacturer XCMG to secure the sales rights for XCMG earthmoving equipment in Ontario.
XCMG earthmoving covered by the deal includes backhoes, compactors, excavators, graders, skid steers, wheel loaders and dozers.
Canlift is a large, independently-owned lift equipment provider of equipment including boom lifts, scissor lifts, towable lifts, vertical mast lifts and telehandlers from manufacturers including Skyjack, Genie and JLG.
Located in Burlington and London, Ontario, the company has plans to expand to Northern and Eastern Ontario. The partnership will give it “unlimited access to all XCMG earthmoving machinery, giving customers the opportunity to purchase equipment immediately.”
“This partnership opens doors to new relationships within the construction machinery industry,” said Geoff Grant, Canlift VP of Sales.
The company also confirmed that “XCMG equipment has not been affected by supply chain issues that others are facing in North America, making delivery windows much shorter than competitors.”
XCMG (Xuzhou Construction Machinery Group) was ranked third place in the world for top construction equipment manufacturers by KHL Group’s Yellow Table 2021, a ranking of the world’s top 50 construction equipment manufacturers. It has facilities in Brazil, Germany, the USA, India, Uzbekistan and China.
