CBRO is a Canadian based heavy equipment leasing and sales company. The company has more than 90 years of experience in the heavy equipment industry in the Northeast United States, covering Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

Amaco has been a respected brand in the Ontario and the GTA market for over 40 years. We look forward to continuing to build upon our local industry knowledge and experience while leveraging the expertise and knowledge of the CBRO team to further grow our mutual business,” Amaco General Manager Jeff MacDonald said in a statement on the company’s website.

The acquisition is effective as of June 30. Amaco will continue operations at its site, and MacDonald and his experienced staff of 16 will remain with CBRO after the deal has closed.

“We are pleased that Jeff, Jaime and the team will be remaining,” stated CBRO CEO Yedidia Koschitzky. We look forward to the opportunity to continue working to leverage Amaco’s 40 years of experience in Ontario.”
