The Canadian addition was announced just weeks after it was confirmed that I&I Sling Inc. will supply its equipment in eastern regions of the U.S.

Equipment Corps will stock spreader beams from MOD12, part of its standard range, up to MOD110H from the heavy range. The first batch of stock was shipped at the end of July, as the new partner looks set to meet a target to become a fully operational distributor by the end of the following month.

Sarah Spivey, managing director at Modulift, said: “The timing is right to introduce Equipment Corps to our distributor network, having been a long-term user of our products. As a number of large scale projects in the region look set to get underway in Q4 2016 and beyond, heightened demand for below-the-hook equipment will be met by a company with an intrinsic understanding of our spreader beams.”
