The PALFINGER Group is expanding its business in the North America region in cooperation with a new strong partner: Falcon Equipment, one of the leading dealers for lifting solutions in Western Canada, is joining PALFINGER’s network of independent dealers.

Falcon Equipment Ltd., based near Vancouver, BC, Canada, was founded in 1988. Today the company operates nationwide, with five sales locations, mobile service trucks and satellite sales staff. True to its slogan “If you can think it, we can build it”, Falcon Equipment offers its customers innovative and customized solutions to every application. As of December 11, 2019 these solutions will include PALFINGER products.

Like PALFINGER, Falcon Equipment has high standards when it comes to solutions. Premium quality, excellent service and a focus on customers’ needs are top priorities. With its sales, service and rental business, the company is among the leading dealers in Western Canada.

“PALFINGER’s goal is to always provide each customer with the perfect solution – a quality standard that we share with Falcon Equipment. I am happy that we will be working together from now on. This cooperation will enlarge our footprint in Canada by a couple of sizes,” said Andreas Klauser, CEO of PALFINGER AG, about the partnership.

Falcon Equipment has equally high expectations: “PALFINGER is a manufacturer that meets our high standards of quality and service. Our customers will appreciate this new partnership,” commented Rick Kielan, founder and CEO.

Falcon Equipment will distribute PALFINGER’s product lines Loader Cranes, Timber/Recycling, Hooklifts & Skiploaders, Truck Mounted Forklifts, Railway Systems and Access Platforms. The partnership will cover the four Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan as well as the Yukon territory.

This partnership will boost the expansion of PALFINGER’s business in North America. Since 2018 PALFINGER has been able to record high growth rates in the North America region which is currently accounting over 20 per cent of the Group’s revenue. The cooperation with Falcon Equipment is expected to increase the region’s contribution to both revenue and earnings significantly.
