BURLINGTON, Ont. – CanLift Equipment Ltd. is set to celebrate its 15th anniversary of serving Ontario’s aerial lift, material handling and earthmoving equipment needs on May 14, 2024.

Since beginning as a modest Burlington startup in 2009, CanLift has grown into a provincial enterprise over the last decade and a half, with a 20,000 square-foot facility in Burlington, a second location in London, and ten delivery trucks transporting rental equipment to its customer base across Ontario.

“CanLift’s success has been a testament to the power of our community. From humble beginnings in 2009 to expansions and relocations, every milestone has been supported by our customers, partners, and of course, our dedicated staff,” expressed Marko Dragicevic, CanLift’s managing partner. “We’re a tight-knit group of over 50 that share a service-centric approach to business. The team’s support and contributions have fueled our growth and will continue to do so.”

This growth only continues to compound, with CanLift investing over $40 million in new fleet equipment over the last 18 months. The company has also implemented its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, Point of Rental, in addition to launching the CanLift Connect mobile app for customers to manage their rentals and invoices.


“As CanLift grows, we’re streamlining processes for swift fleet turnover. Our new ERP provides customers with real-time equipment visibility and self-service capabilities. Plus, technicians can now conduct inspections digitally directly from the work area while yard associates source equipment from our rental-ready fleet,” said Joe Gould, CanLift’s director of business development.
