Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment America last week announced Ron’s Equipment will distribute Doosan heavy excavators, wheel loaders, articulated dump trucks and attachments in the Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, area.

In 1970, Ron’s Equipment opened as a small automobile repair shop in Yellowknife. In an attempt to capitalize on the region’s rich supply of natural resources, Ron’s Equipment entered the rental business, providing surrounding mining operations with necessary equipment. Today, the family-owned business occupies a 20,000-square-foot facility, employing 25 people.

After the company’s success selling and renting lighter Doosan and Bobcat products, Ron Gibeault, president of Ron’s Equipment, and his two sons, conducted extensive research on the Doosan heavy product line.

“Located north of the 60th parallel, our customers often work on remote sites characterized by extreme climate conditions,” said Gibeault. “We are confident that Doosan provides the factory support needed to keep our customers’ equipment up and running.”
