Canada doesn't get too much coverage in Forkliftaction News, but it looks like there's lots happening there all of a sudden.
This week's newsletter includes a couple of dealer/distributor appointments: MasonLift being named as a Kalmar forklift and container handling equipment distributor for British Columbia and Deval Chariots Elevateurs being appointed an authorised distributor of CLARK products in Montreal.
However, on a sadder note, we report the impending closure of family-owned materials handling business Attica Equipment at the end of November.
Meanwhile, Provincial Lift Truck Inc. has taken delivery of North America's largest-capacity rough-terrain telehandler at its location in Kitchener, Ontario.
So, this week at least, it looks like Canada can do!
