Konecranes expands its Canadian operations

Provincial Services Crane Specialists was founded in 1980 and is a recognised name in the Canadian lifting market. The company specialises in overhead crane inspection, maintenance, repair, spare parts, modernisation and lifting equipment. It sells its products and services directly to end users in the steel, mining, power and general manufacturing industries. Through the acquisition, Konecranes will be able to expand its Canadian operations in these industries.

“The market coverage of Provincial Services is quite complementary to ours,” said Keith King, president of Konecranes Canada, Inc. “Provincial Services will help to provide us with entry to the primary steel industry, along with its specific knowledge of this industry, close relationships and Konecranes technologies.”

Konecranes Canada, Inc., established in 1970 with branch offices across the country, is one of Canada’s leading supplier of new cranes, modernisations, maintenance and inspection services for all makes and models of overhead cranes and hoists in all major industries.
