Volvo recently announced the sale of Champion Road Machinery Sales of Brampton, Ontario, to Strongco Limited of Mississauga, Ontario. Strongco holds 20 construction equipment sales and service branches in five Canadian provinces.
The Champion Road Machinery Sales acquisition by Strongco gives the company exclusive rights to the sales, rentals, parts and service operations of Volvo’s motor grader and compact equipment product lines in Ontario. To ensure that Volvo customers will continue to receive product support and service without interruption, Strongco will continue operations at the Champion locations in Brampton, Carleton Place, Goderich, North Bay and Thunder Bay.
“The purchase of Volvo CE’s Champion business by Strongco is an excellent example of the interest shown by our dealers in long-term commitments to invest in and develop their business consistent with our company’s long-term goals”, says Dennis R. Slagle, president and chief executive officer of Volvo Construction Equipment North America. “Champion has been a great performer for Volvo CE’s motor grader and compact products for many years and the use of that company’s talent and expertise will benefit Strongco as they strengthen their Volvo business.”
