The Brandt Group of Companies has acquired Camex Equipment Sales & Rentals Ltd. of Edmonton, Alta., expanding into the specialty transportation equipment industry.
“This is an exciting acquisition for us as Camex is a world-class company with the largest inventory of industry-specific transportation equipment in the business,” says Brandt president and CEO, Shaun Semple. “The combination of these two strong organizations guarantees unrivalled value for our customers and secures our place as the #1 provider of specialty transportation equipment in the industry.”
The Camex name (C – Canada, A – America, MEX – Mexico) has been associated with custom truck rigging and on-highway specialized trailers for over 25 years. Camex products can be found in the oil and gas, mining, pipeline, infrastructure, municipal and environmental sectors.
The result of this acquisition is a new Brandt Group of Companies division called Brandt Truck Rigging & Trailers.
“We couldn’t be more excited about becoming a part of the Brandt organization,” adds Camex chief operating officer Sue McGregor.”It ensures that Camex customers will continue to receive the same great products and services that we’ve always been proud to offer them, but now with the addition of the tremendous value and heavy industry experience that Brandt brings to the table.”
This acquisition includes three buildings – a 71,000 sq/ft sales and service facility and two others – totalling 150,000 sq/ft, situated on a 26-acre property located at Hwy 16 and Hwy 625, near the Edmonton International Airport.
