Calmont Equipment Limited has announced it has acquired four Bobcat dealerships in Western Canada.
The acquisition by Calmont includes Bobcat of Edmonton, Bobcat of Calgary, Bobcat of Red Deer and Bobcat of Fort McMurray.
The acquisition establishes Calmont as the Bobcat equipment provider in those four cities and surrounding areas.
All four dealerships, which were acquired from Cervus Equipment, will continue to serve as authorized sales, service, parts and rental providers of Bobcat equipment.
Established in 1977, Calmont started as a vehicle leasing company based in Edmonton. It’s since added multiple truck dealerships and expanded into Saskatoon, Winnipeg and southern Ontario.
“We thought Bobcat would be a great fit with Calmont’s existing model,” said Darren Currie, president of Calmont Group. “Being able to offer a customer a piece of Bobcat equipment and then also giving them the option of using one of our trucks and trailers to help transport it is a huge opportunity for us. All of our product lines can be very cohesive, which can result in success for Calmont as a whole.”
The four Bobcat dealerships will serve a variety of markets, including construction, landscaping, snow removal and agriculture.
“Owning a piece of Bobcat equipment will make our customers’ jobs easier. We want our customers to work smart, not hard, and leave the heavy lifting to our equipment,” Currie said. “We are proud of our knowledgeable and friendly staff as well as the quality products we have to offer. That’s why customers stay loyal to us. In addition, we offer rentals, leasing, sales and service — all at a competitive price.”
Bobcat, headquartered in West Fargo, North Dakota, has more than 550 dealer locations throughout North America. Bobcat’s compact equipment includes skid-steer, all-wheel steer and compact track loaders; compact excavators; mini track loaders; VersaHandler telescopic tool carriers; utility vehicles; Toolcat utility work machines and attachments.
