Strongco

Nors Group (Nors), a global leader in transport solutions and construction equipment, has purchased Strongco Corporation (Strongco) and will take over its Volvo Construction Equipment's Canadian dealerships and distribution. The Portugal-based company finalized the deal to purchase Strongco on March 18.

Grove and Strongco celebrated 60 years of doing business together during a special ceremony at bauma 2019 in Munich, Germany. Strongco is a Grove, Manitowoc and National Crane dealer that has a strong presence in selling, renting and servicing equipment across Canada.

After last year's Sennebogen national sales meeting, Oliver Nachevski, VP and COO of Strongco Corporation, told his organization, "There's no reason we can't be at the top." At this year's meeting, he was proven right. Constantino Lannes, president of Sennebogen LLC, announced Strongco as 2018's Dealer of the Year at the annual ISRI Conference and Exhibition in April.

Earle Fawcett knew that he had squeezed everything he could out of his aged knuckleboom loaders. It was time to move on. "When you've made mill upgrades and you're putting money into your operation, but you're trying to feed it with some old equipment that's almost impossible to find parts for anymore, you have to say, look, we can't just keep running that way." Fawcett wears a few hats at the Plaster Rock Lumber Mill operated by Twin Rivers Paper Company near Edmundston, New Brunswick.
