Shawmut Equipment of Canada, a Manitowoc Crane dealer partner, has opened a new facility in Elmsdale, Nova Scotia, Canada, near Halifax. The new location will serve as the company’s Canadian headquarters and comes as demand for its products and services has been expanding in the region.
The new facility features vast yard space, multiple repair bays equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment, two 10-ton overhead cranes, a large parts warehouse and expansive office space. It will offer crane and utility equipment sales and rentals, as well as parts and service support.

Shamut covers a wide array of Manitowoc crane products, including Manitowoc crawler cranes, Grove mobile cranes, Potain self-erecting cranes and National Crane boom trucks.
