SMS Rents, a Canadian rental company specializing in Komatsu equipment, last week opened a branch in Stoney Creek, Ontario, the company’s 11th location.
“We are excited about our newest 8,000-square-foot facility in Stoney Creek, situated in the industrial heartland of southern Ontario,” said Marcel Langlois, SMS president. “It has everything we need to keep our customers job ready, including plenty of yard space for our rental fleet, great service shop capabilities and a spacious showroom.”
The store will serve the Niagara region, which includes the fruit-growing area of the Niagara escarpment, and the steel industries of the Hamilton and Burlington area.
SMS also provides complete sales and service for the Komatsu utility line of compact equipment, including Komatsu mini-excavators, compact dozers, wheel loaders, skid-steer loaders and backhoe loaders.
The company named Glen Greer branch manager. “Glenn, like all of our managers, is an equipment expert who brings a wealth of experience in the rental equipment business to his new position,” added Langlois.
“The new SMS Rents Stoney Creek is ideally situated,” said Greer. “We expect our customers to be a complete cross-section of the neighborhood, from steel mills and light industrial, to homeowners and agricultural operations.
