Skyjack partners with MacFarlands

By Lindsey Anderson26 March 2019

Skyjack has signed an exclusive contract with MacFarlands Industrial for the rental company’s new Moncton, New Brunswick location. MacFarlands has been renting throughout Atlantic Canada for over 50 years and is excited to stock their fleet with Canadian made aerial equipment.

“We’ve serviced Atlantic Provinces from our Nova Scotia location since 1963 and have been thinking about expanding for quite some time,” said Scott Bishop, operations manager at MacFarlands Industrial. “With our second location, we’ll be able to keep up with demand coming from our customers operating out of New Brunswick.”

The rental company has signed an exclusive partnership with Skyjack to have the Canadian manufacturer be the sole supplier of all DC electric scissor lifts. The first order of these consisted of SJIII 3219, SJIII 3226, SJIII 4632, and SJIII 4740 electric scissor lifts. Each of these models use SKYCODED, Skyjack’s color coded and numbered wiring system.

“The reliability and easily accessible service points on our machines were a big selling point for MacFarlands,” said Luc Bourbonniere, sales manager at Skyjack. “On any job site, but especially when working on remote areas, being able to limit downtime and use off the shelf parts when needed is critical to maintaining construction schedules.

“It is a perfect fit for Skyjack and our easy to do business with attitude. We’re excited about this new opportunity and am looking forward to seeing more Skyjacks on site throughout Canada.”
