Nova Scotia branch to get an expanded building at new location set to open in the fall.
Strongco Corporation has started construction on a new building for its Dartmouth, N.S., branch. Located on four acres of land at 276 Higney Avenue, the branch is expected to relocate to its new facility this fall.
Purpose-built with over 21,000 square feet and eight new modern service bays, the upgraded branch will support the regional equipment sales, rental and administration services for the Volvo Construction Equipment, Sennebogen and Eco Log Forestry product lines the company distributes in Nova Scotia.
All service bays in the new building will provide 35 feet of operating height with two 10-ton overhead cranes. And the increased parts warehouse will support a large inventory of OEM parts.
“Strongco has been operating from the current Dartmouth location on 55 Isnor Drive for more than 29 years but, as our business continues to grow in the Halifax Regional Municipality and surrounding areas, the decision to expand became necessary to better support our customers, our employees, and the continued growth of the company,” says Stephen George, regional vice-president for construction equipment in Eastern Canada.
“This has been an incredible year for Strongco overall and we need to ensure that both our facilities and our staff are equipped with the necessary tools to offer our customers the optimum level of support they deserve,” says Oliver Nachevski, president and CEO at Strongco. “We’re committed to supporting this community and the growth in this area of Dartmouth and Halifax.”
Strongco Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nors, S.A., and is a major multiline mobile equipment dealer with operations across Canada. The Company has approximately 500 employees serving customers from 25 branches.
