Strongco Corp. said this week that it has entered into an agreement with Ormet SpA of Italy to be the exclusive dealer for Ormet Jekko minicrane products for Canada.
Jekko minicranes are compact crawler cranes equipped with outriggers that provide lifting and material handling capabilities for confined working areas. These versatile machines have lifting capacities ranging from 1.2 to 4.0 tonnes. Applications include mechanical contracting, glass handling and installation, steel erection, HVAC and landscaping. Strongco will market and support the products through its Canadian branch network.
“The addition of Jekko products is consistent with Strongco’s growth strategy of adding branded complementary products to our portfolio,” said Bob Dryburgh, president and CEO. “Jekko minicranes are an excellent complement to our existing line of small, versatile cranes. In addition to broadening the choices we offer to our customers, this initiative enables Strongco to access new end use markets.”
