Strongco adds SDLG wheel loaders to dealer networks in Alberta, Quebec
September 8, 2014 by STAFF REPORT
Strongco Corp. announced it is the dealer for the complete lineup of SDLG wheel loaders in Alberta and Quebec.
Launched in Canada in 2013, SDLG machines are available for a range of applications, including waste management, snow removal, mining, farming applications and material handling.
Shandong Lingong Construction Machinery Co., Ltd., (Lingong) manufactures SDLG products in Linyi, China and Pederneiras, Brazil. Volvo Construction Equipment purchased 70 per cent of Lingong in 2007.
“The SDLG loaders are an ideal complement to our current product offerings, enabling Strongco to satisfy those customers looking for more fundamental capabilities better suited to less demanding operating requirements. As a result, Strongco expects to reach a broader customer base seeking a value-priced, reliable machine, often as an entry level product,” said Bob Dryburgh, president and CEO of Strongco. “We are excited by the initial customer response in Alberta and Quebec, and our plan is to roll out the wheel loaders in Ontario over the balance of the year.”
Al Quinn, director of SDLG North America, said the partnership with Strongco will strengthen the brand’s presence in Canada, introducing more customers to its wheel loaders. “The success of SDLG is only as strong as our network of dealers,” said Quinn. “With Strongco on board, we’ve ensured that the Canadian market has a seasoned dealer that will take great care in knowing both the product and its ideal customer base.”
