President’s Message Summer 2018

June 21, 2018

This year SMS Equipment celebrates its first decade of service. Our milestones, highlights and achievements are realized by addressing your changing needs while focusing on growth. SMS Equipment continues to differentiate through advanced technologies, helping customers prosper in their respective fields. We implemented several organizational and infrastructure upgrades this year as we look to the future. 

Organizationally, we added the key role of Vice President, Innovation and Advanced Technologies.

In April 2018, we welcomed Mike Brown to the role.  He brings a depth of experience with the Internet of Things and software solutions that improve performance in the oil and gas, mining and manufacturing industries.

With Mike’s leadership, SMS Equipment continues to grow the necessary resources to ensure our customers fully realize the value of advanced product offerings like Komatsu’s ­intelligent Machine Control and Autonomous Haulage Systems.

From an infrastructure perspective, we expanded and upgraded our foot print through facilities this year in:

  • Anchorage, Alaska (new)
  • Hinton, Alberta (new)
  • Williams Lake, British Columbia (move and expansion)
  • Acheson, Alberta (renovation)

Our next project is an expansion of the Acheson Remanufacturing Facility to double its size and capacity as well as an addition of a new corporate office building in Acheson, Alberta.

We are honoured to have served our valued customers through this first decade and acknowledge that past accomplishments do not guarantee future results.  We will continue to focus on earning your business.
