The parent company of Northern Crane Services (NCS) in Alberta, Canada, has bought Parkland Crane Services, which is based in the same province.
Parkland was established some 27 years ago by Jim and Barb Robinson in Edmonton.
As part of the transaction, Parkland will be fully integrated with NCS, which is owned by NC Services Group (NCSG), a Northwest Capital Appreciation company. This, it said, will provide customers with more access to equipment and services.
"The merger is another step in our strategy to strengthen our position as the lifting and heavy haul solutions provider of choice," said John Stevens, NCS president and COO. "Parkland will add to our resources and their experience and customer base will be an added benefit for NCS."
