Surrey, B.C. – Falcon Equipment announced their newest strategic partnership with Brandell Diesel (BDI) based out of Calgary, Alta. BDI will be an extension of Falcon offering service and parts for all equipment that Falcon carries, including their lifting, municipal, rail and utility product lines.

Mike Gallant, who has worked for Falcon Equipment in Calgary for over 10 years, will cover all sales and will be based out of BDI’s facility.

BDI is a heavy-duty diesel and equipment shop that concentrates on hydraulic equipment. Founded in 2013, BDI quickly grew from a three-man shop, to a 24-person team with some of Alberta’s most dedicated red seal mechanics, and knowledgeable parts, service and sales representatives. Employees at all levels have their red seal certification and have years of experience working on a variety of equipment.

“We are constantly evaluating how we can better support the markets we serve. This partnership gives us the ability to better cater to our customers in the Southern region of Alberta,” said Blair Norberg, vice president of Falcon. “Not only is BDI a great strategic partner in business but they also align with all of Falcon’s core values. They understand the importance of having strong relationships with customers, suppliers, coworkers and the industry. We’re excited to see what the future holds for Falcon and BDI.”


In 2019 Falcon opened a new branch in Edmonton, offering sales, service and parts support for the product lines they carry including Palfinger, National Crane, Stellar, ETI, Dieci, LaRue, Henderson, Boss Railcar Movers, Tractive Power and more. Falcon is dedicated to serving the Alberta market and continuing to grow within.

“BDI was created because we recognized there was something missing in the crane sales and service market in Southern Alberta. We wanted to fix this by offering our customer common-sense service,” said Brandon Mandel, president of Brandell Diesel. “Since 2015 we have been working with Falcon. Now, we are excited to be able to officially partner with a company that has the same values that we do! Falcon will go to the end of the road and back for any one of their customers which is something we value utmost. We’re excited to be aligned with a crane and equipment dealer in Alberta who cares and wants to earn your business.”
