The product range, which features heavy track and low profile systems in addition to turntables, hydraulic power packs and rigging equipment completes Equipment Corps’ portfolio of solutions that lift, pull, move and now slide all types of heavy loads for applications in Canada’s crane, power generation, construction and transport industries.

“The partnership effectively gives the Canadian market access to skidding systems,” said Luke Habza, technical sales and business development at Equipment Corps Associating ourselves with the best brands has always been our goal; we pioneer by finding gaps in both our product offering and the overall industry. Hydra-Slide products allow us to achieve both of these things.”

“We understand the value of having a rental partner to support a client’s needs that, for any number of reasons, may not be looking to purchase equipment,” said Janine Smith, vice president, Hydra-Slide. ”Luke and I started communicating a few months ago when a custom application arose for one of their customers. It became apparent how we know many of the same people and how much overlap there is in our client base and industry connections. Further, we operate our companies with the same mandate of excellent customer service and each have a reputation for honesty and integrity in the market.”
