On June 12, 2017, SMS Equipment, a leading Canadian heavy machinery distributor, will be moving to a new location north of the Greater Montreal Area, near Highway 13:
1800 Montgolfier Street
Laval, Quebec H7T 0L9
The management team from the Eastern Regional Office and the staff from the Dorval and Mirabel branches will be joined together under the same roof, in a building that meets LEED environmental standards. The careful design of these facilities also provides an optimal health and safety environment for all employees.
As stated by Alain Bédard, Executive Vice President of SMS Equipment for the Eastern Region,
“We are very excited about welcoming our customers to these modern facilities, which were designed to ensure efficiency and productivity in equipment distribution, assembly and maintenance of the brands we represent. This location has one other significant advantage for staff and clients alike: the location is very accessible.”
The new SMS location – with a building area of 59,000 square feet (5,480 square metres) on a 350,000 square-foot lot (32,515 square metres) – will bring together the offices, warehouses and workshops to create a one-stop shop for all customer equipment, parts and services needs. Note: the toll-free telephone number (800-881-9828) and E-mail addresses have not changed.
The other SMS branches in the Eastern group are located in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, Trois-Rivières, Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, Chicoutimi, Val-d’Or and Baie-Comeau, Timmins (Ontario), Fredericton and Moncton (New Brunswick), St. John’s (Newfoundland) and Wabush (Labrador).
Created in 2008 from a merger of three Canadian construction equipment retailers, SMS Equipment became one of the largest Komatsu dealers in the world. The company operates about forty branches and service centres across Canada to serve customers in the construction, forestry and mining sectors. SMS is the exclusive distributor of Komatsu brands and Wirtgen group products (Hamm, Vögele, Kleemann, Wirtgen). The company offers other heavy machinery brands that are recognized worldwide, including Fecon and Terramac, and a full range of accessories, such as Berco crawler tracks, Indeco shears and hammers, and Hensley ground engaging tools.
