SDLG adds Strongco, Atlantic region to its ranks
August 26, 2015 by STAFF REPORT
Less than one year after expanding its range of construction equipment to include SDLG wheel loaders, Strongco is rolling out the brand to even more of its locations. In 2014 the company began selling the wheel loaders at branches in Alberta, Quebec and Ontario. Now the company’s branches in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and Moncton, New Brunswick, will join the dealer network.
Strongco’s Stephen George, regional vice president, Atlantic, said that the company was having success selling the wheel loaders to a diverse range of customers and that the timing was right to expand the offering to the Atlantic region.
“The value proposition of SDLG wheel loaders makes them attractive to all kinds of companies,” he said. “We’ve seen that people desire a well-made loader with a solid warranty and they don’t necessarily need the features of a higher-priced premium machine. Offering SDLG to customers in the Atlantic region expands our portfolio to include wheel loaders for these types of customers.”
Adding Strongco Atlantic to its dealer network reinforces SDLG’s strategy of partnering with established, experienced Strongco Atlantic will sell and provide support for the entire range of SDLG wheel loaders, which include:
- LG938L, a 2.5yd³ capacity wheel loader; the LG948L, a 3.0 yd³ capacity wheel loader;
- LG958L, a 4.0 yd³ capacity wheel loader;
- LG959, which has the same basic specs as the LG958L, but with wet disc brakes rather than dry disc.
Al Quinn, director of SDLG North America, said the expansion of SDLG wheel loaders to additional Strongco locations is a win for both Strongco and its customers.
“Strongco’s customer will have more choices when they look to purchase a wheel loader, with SDLG providing a well-made machine, backed by a solid warranty,” he said. “It’s a great choice for companies that don’t need premium features on their wheel loader or would like an alternative to used equipment. And of course, Strongco’s reputation speaks for itself – they will provide excellent service and support.”
