The new location will open on March 1, on the South end of Vancouver Island in Sooke, British Columbia (7450 Butler Road). The branch will be offering sales, service, rentals and parts support for all of Falcon Equipment’s core product lines.

“We are excited to open our second location on Vancouver Island. Falcon is on an aggressive growth plan; we are continuously evaluating the market and our customer’s needs. This branch opening helps to continue to position us as market leaders in Western Canada.”  Said Falcon Equipment President Dan Kielan.
