Brokk has increased its presence in Canada. While the brand has had a sales presence in Canada for more than 30 years, the manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines only recently opened a distribution centre in the country. Located in Hamilton, Ont., the new facility marks an expansion of its network, says the company.

The distribution centre will be managed by Jim Bennett, who has joined the Brokk team as warehouse and logistics manager. Bennett’s responsibilities include managing product and assisting customers and regional sales managers by providing parts support throughout Canada.

The 4,000-foot Canadian distribution facility will house the full line of demolition machines with attachments, as well as Aquajet Hydrodemolition robots and parts inventory for both brands. The new centre will also offer Brokk and Aquajet demonstrations.

“Adding a distribution centre gets us closer to our Canadian customers and generally streamlines the ordering and shipping process,” said Lars Lindgren, president of Brokk, Inc. “We’re all excited to see what Jim will make of the facility and how it will help our customers in the Toronto area and beyond. He has a wealth of warehouse management experience and will closely monitor demand for Brokk and Aquajet products to ensure optimal stock.”


Bennett has more than 30 years of warehouse and logistics experience in the auto and construction sectors, having worked as a warehouse manager and advancing to warehouse supervisor at his previous company.

“My whole career has been customer driven, and that’s what’s so exciting about this role,” said Bennett. “My vision aligns with Brokk’s. The new facility will help meet our goal of providing Canadian customers with machines and parts from both Brokk and Aquajet.”
