Dec. 11, 2019, Surrey, B.C. – Falcon Equipment Ltd. has announced their exclusive partnership with Palfinger AG. Falcon will be providing sales, rentals, service and parts support for all Palfinger products throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Falcon will no longer be the official distributor for Hiab; however, they will continue to work with the marketplace insuring support for all makes and models of cranes and truck equipment.

“We’ve been in business since 1988, and over 31 years later we are still looking for ways to grow our business and provide better products and support to our ever-changing markets. To do this, we need to offer our customers the best range of products and unmatched service and parts. Working with Palfinger will enable us to accomplish this goal,” said Dan Kielan, president of Falcon Equipment. “This is a big move for us; change isn’t always easy and it’s often uncomfortable. However, in this case, it will help us move forward and become stronger. Our growth strategy for Falcon is aggressive and well thought out and we are excited about this transition.”

– Material Handling Cranes
– Forestry & Scrap Cranes
– Aerial Lift Trucks
– Hooklifts
– Rail Cranes
– Truck-Mounted Forklifts

“We couldn’t be more excited about this product change as it is important that we are not only listening to our customers but are continually adapting our business to better suit their needs. Sitting back and resting on yesterday’s laurels is not part of our future planning,” vice president Blair Norberg said. “We have closely observed the global and local shift in our industry over the past few years and Falcon wants to be at the forefront of providing our customers with better solutions to satisfy all their product requirements. Aside from being the global industry leader, Palfinger and Falcon are strongly aligned in their core values.”
