MISSISSAUGA, ON, – Strongco Corporation, a Nors Group company, is excited to announce that construction has begun on a new facility where their Dartmouth branch will be relocated. It’s estimated to be completed by the fall of 2022.
The new facility will be located on four acres of land at 276 Higney Avenue in Dartmouth and will support the regional equipment sales, rental, and administration services for the Volvo Construction Equipment, Sennebogen and Eco Log Forestry product lines they distribute in Nova Scotia. It’s a purpose-built facility with over 21,000 square feet and 8 new modern service bays. All service bays provide 35 feet of operating height with two ten-ton overhead cranes. This new facility will allow them opportunities to provide their customers with additional service support and reduce wait times. The increased parts warehouse will support a large inventory of their 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 HRM (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, Construction Equipment, 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. We’re committed to supporting this community and the growth in this area of Dartmouth and Halifax,” says Oliver Nachevski, President and Chief Executive Officer for Strongco.
