Wed July 16, 2003 - Northeast Edition

Sennebogen Green Line machines are now available in Canada.

Top Lift Enterprises has been appointed the distributor for Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. A privately-owned Canadian company, Top Lift is engaged in the sales and distribution of specialized machinery for railways, ports, terminals and industry.

According to David Shea, vice president and director, Top Lift was looking for a complementary product for its operation. “We talked to a number of people in our industry and others and the Sennebogen name kept coming up in a positive manner. We work with market leaders and felt that Sennebogen matched the profile.”

Richard Centner, executive vice president of Sennebogen LLC said, “Top Lift is exactly the type of company that we are looking for to join our team. They provide their customers with after-sales service support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They have factory-trained technicians on staff and know what it takes to look after customers in a very demanding environment.”

Joel Paikin, director of sales and marketing, indicated that Top Lift has experience in taking on new products and like being first in Canada.

“We are a highly-responsive company and everyone in it is approachable. We have people in all areas of the country, stock thousands of parts and run three shifts a day to be able to respond to our clients in a timely fashion. We will extend the same level of attention to detail and service to the scrap and forestry sectors as we do to our present customer base,” said Paikin.

The National Sales Manager of Sennebogen, Keith Ahlstrom believes that Top Lift was a perfect fit.

“This is a company that takes the time to find the very best products to offer their clients. They are marketshare leaders in many of their product categories. This is a clear demonstration of the respect and dedication they have for their customers’ needs. Having offices in southern Ontario in eastern Canada, in Vancouver on the West Coast and service personnel strategically located across Canada makes them the ideal distributor,” concluded Ahlstrom.

Started in 1991, Top Lift Enterprises has experience in servicing major handling equipment.

Sennebogen Green Line material handlers are custom designed and supplied by the company’s newly-established North American headquarters located in Charlotte, NC.
