ESS acquires Belcher Machinery Parts in Quebec


Equipment Sales & Service Limited (ESS) has acquired the machinery parts business and inventory of UAP Inc., which was formerly known as Belcher Machinery Parts.

ESS has been supporting the construction, mining and forestry industries with quality aftermarket parts for 75 years and is committed to ensuring continued service.

“ESS is very excited about this acquisition. It is a natural fit for our growth strategy and will expand our existing customer base and footprint in the province of Quebec,” said Morgan Cronin, president of ESS.

“We welcome the Belcher Machinery Parts family into the ESS Corporate Group, and we look forward to continue providing quality customer service and superior aftermarket parts solutions into these markets.”

Following the acquisition, ESS will consolidate its Quebec operations. The branch will focus on selling aftermarket parts and undercarriages, mainly from the Berco and ITM brands.

“ESS will consolidate its existing business in Quebec City and operate it seamlessly from UAP’s QC facility at 160 Rue de Rotterdam, Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, Quebec,” said George Parps, vice president of ESS Parts Eastern Canada.

Founded in 1946 and ranked as one of Canada’s oldest and most established equipment companies, ESS has served Canada’s heavy equipment industry for 75 years.
