Winamac, Ind.-based Galbreath, a manufacturer of hoists, container handlers and trailers, has named Joe Johnson Equipment (JJE) as a distributor of the company’s equipment in Canada. JJE will carry Galbreath’s entire product line in the eastern half of Canada.

JJE sells, rents and services new and preowned equipment to municipalities and contractors across Canada as well as in the United States and Chile. It will service Galbreath customers in Canada from Newfoundland to Manitoba.

“We’re incredibly excited to become part of the extensive Galbreath dealer network, and we look forward to expanding their presence in Canada,” says Michel Lavender, product manager of the refuse division for JJE. “The high-quality Galbreath product line complements the best-in-class products we represent, and we look forward to making our customers aware of the many advantages and benefits that Galbreath brings to the table.”

John Defenbaugh, Galbreath mobile products division president, adds, “Galbreath is continually focused on strengthening our North American dealer network to better serve our end-users. Joe Johnson Equipment was a natural choice for expansion in Canada. The company provides sales and service through multiple locations, while focusing on quality service at the localized or regional level. That, combined with a knowledgeable sales force and extensive industry experience, is impressive.”

Galbreath is a part of the manufacturing firm Wastequip, based in Charlotte, N.C. Other Wastequip companies include Toter, Pioneer, Accurate, Cusco, Mountain Tarp and Parts Place.
