Redhead Equipment Continues to Expand its Services in Northeast Saskatchewan
Redhead Equipment is now servicing trucks, trailers and construction equipment in Prince Albert and Melfort
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2015 – Redhead Equipment’s Prince Albert and Melfort locations have long been known as leaders in agricultural equipment and service. Since being acquired in November 2014, they’ve continued to expand their offerings. The latest addition now enables both locations to service trucks, trailers and construction equipment, along with their existing staple of agricultural equipment.
“Our farm customers have always had trucks, trailers and smaller construction equipment. This expansion gives them the convenience of bringing in their sprayer on a low bed trailer and having us do an inspection and safety on both in one trip,” said Tyler Fettes, Service Manager with Redhead Equipment in Melfort. “It also opens the door to new customers, local construction and transportation companies, that can enjoy our location accessibility. Specifically in Melfort, we’re just across the highway from the D.O.T. scale and inspection area.”
In order to provide their customers with top notch service in these new areas, Redhead Equipment has invested in the industry knowledge of their technicians through factory training with Mack, CASE and Volvo. They’ve also bolstered their staff with experience, bringing in Kevin Kowalchuk as the new Shop Foreman in Prince Albert. Additionally, both Melfort and Prince Albert service departments have met the requirements and are now certified as Authorized SGI Inspection Stations for trailers, semi-trailers, power units and heavy trucks.
“We’ve already seen an influx of service work without really announcing what we’re doing. Most of it has been from farmers making appointments to bring their trucks in for safeties after harvest,” noted Bill McWatters, Service Manager with Redhead Equipment in Prince Albert. “This hasn’t been a surprise, there’s a huge need in this area. Being able to service all makes and models of equipment under one roof is a great advantage for us, and something our local competitors just can’t offer.”
As for road calls, at this point that service will only be offered for agriculture equipment, trucks and trailers, with the addition of construction equipment road calls planned for some time in the New Year.
With the new Prince Albert location near the junction of Highways 2 and 11 projected for completion by the second half of 2016, the growth of Redhead Equipment in Northeast Saskatchewan appears to be just beginning.
