Ahern Rentals has opened its first Canadian location in Edmonton, Alberta.
With more than 80 locations in the United States, Ahern Canada is the fifth international location to open, following expansions into Australia, Japan, Chile and Germany.
All Ahern International locations are focused on the sale and service of Snorkel aerial lifts and Xtreme Manufacturing telehandlers.
“Canada is a very important market for Xtreme and Snorkel, where we already have many valued customers,” said Matthew Elvin, CEO of Ahern International. “The investment in Ahern Canada reinforces our commitment this region, and will help us to deliver improved customer service and easier access to spare parts and new equipment, which we will be stocking at the Edmonton branch. We are very excited about this location, and we are looking forward to serving the Canadian market.”
Ahern Canada’s facility
Located in West Edmonton, the facility is strategically located to support the equipment requirements of rental companies and contractors across the country, as well as the resources and energy sectors. The 836 square metre facility houses a showroom, offices, a spare parts warehouse and workshop for equipment servicing and repairs.
The Edmonton branch will stock Snorkel and Xtreme spare parts to support equipment in the field, as well as an inventory of new Snorkel lifts and Xtreme Manufacturing telehandlers. The company also has a field sales team covering Eastern and Western Canada, and offers both onsite, field service and repair capabilities.
“The official launch of Ahern Canada is an important step for Xtreme Manufacturing and Snorkel in this region,” said Rhett Nickerson, western regional sales manager for the company. “Our customers in this market are very excited to have a ‘bricks and mortar’ facility that will be fully stocked with spare parts and new equipment inventory, backed by a local team with significant industry experience.”
