Shawmut Equipment of Canada Inc. recently opened the doors of its new facility located in the Halifax, Nova Scotia, area, where its customer base and business volume has been constantly expanding. To meet the increased demand for products and services, Shawmut decided to open an additional location to better serve its customers. The facility was specifically designed by Shawmut to transform the newly constructed building into an industry leading space where its factory trained technicians and knowledgeable parts and service staff can quickly and efficiently support all customer needs.

The new facility provides vast yard space, multiple repair bays equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment and two 10-ton overhead cranes, a large parts warehouse and expansive office space. The full-service location will act as the new Canadian headquarters, offering crane and utility equipment sales, rentals, parts and service support. The central location and proximity to the Halifax airport will allow for quick technician dispatch, as well as expedited shipping times for parts orders.

The new Canadian headquarters is located in the East Hants Business Park in Elmsdale, Nova Scotia. Due to the large geographical area that Shawmut Equipment of Canada covers, the company will additionally continue to serve customers out of its Saint John, New Brunswick, location.

Shawmut Equipment represents the Manitowoc Crane Group, including Manitowoc crawler cranes, Grove mobile hydraulic cranes, GMK all terrain cranes, National boom trucks, Potain self- erecting cranes, as well as a variety of utility equipment. Shawmut Equipment of Canada Inc. is a fully-owned subsidiary of Shawmut Equipment Company Inc., which has been serving the crane industry since 1957.
