Brandt Digs New Saskatoon Home
January 5, 2015 by STAFF REPORT
Brandt Tractor’s Saskatoon branch has moved into a new home following 23 years of service to the Saskatoon and northern Saskatchewan construction industry from the old location on Millar Avenue.
The all-new facility represents a major vote of confidence by the company in the continuing strength of the Saskatoon and area economy and its growing industry base.
“As one of our original locations, this has always been an important market for us and our new facility was created from the ground up with the needs of the industry in mind; allowing us to serve our customers better than ever before,” says Brandt President, Shaun Semple.
“Delivering powerful value to the construction and forestry industry has always been our key focus and we’re affirming our commitment to the city, the province and the industry with this bigger, better location.”
Built with a focus on energy-efficiency and environmental sustainability, Brandt’s high-performance new branch delivers numerous advantages to Saskatoon and area contractors, starting with its easy-access 13-acre location (including a dedicated load/unload facility) at 800-60th Street West, across from SaskTel Centre off of Highway 16 West.
“We’re proud to be a part of the Saskatoon success story,” adds Saskatoon Branch Manager, Rod Bowes, “and this is all about continuing to build that success by delivering what the Saskatoon and northern Saskatchewan market wants and needs. As of today, we’re better equipped than ever to do just that.”
