Mississauga, Ont. – Strongco, a Nors Group company, started construction on its new branch in Kitchener, Ont. Construction is expected to be completed this summer.
The new facility will support the sale, rental and parts and service needs of their many customers in the Kitchener Waterloo area. It will have new and modern service bays along with a large parts warehouse in support of the Volvo Construction Equipment, Sennebogen and Eco Log Forestry products they distribute. Strongco also distributes Manitowoc, Grove, National Crane, Fassi Articulated Crane and Konecranes Industrial Trucks.
This new build in Breslau, Ontario will be a state-of-the-art design with environmental sensitivities in mind since the property is located next to a Provincially Significant Wetland. The design will include considerations to protect nesting turtles and other animal habitats as well.
For years, the current Kitchener, Ontario branch has been operating as a shared facility for both their CASE and Volvo Construction Equipment divisions. They have now outgrown the building and each need to expand into their own facilities.

“This area within Ontario continues to grow as many national accounts, large independent equipment rental houses, and heavy construction operations move into the area and the upgrade will reduce service times by having improved parts and service amenities and spacious drive through bays.” Said Paul George, regional vice-president, Ontario Construction Equipment.
Since February 22, the CASE Division has been up and running in their facility in Waterloo. The facility is larger and has undergone extensive renovations giving them the opportunity to provide their customers with a full range of CASE equipment, parts and services.
“This sends a strong message to our customers and the competition. It shows that Strongco is committed and ready to grow in the Tri City area,” said Oliver Nachevski, president and CEO of Strongco.
The new facility is located at 5179 Fountain St N in nearby Breslau.
