Strongco Announces Multi-Unit Volvo Wheel Loader Deal with Highline Produce Limited

23.05.2017

Customer Joe Cartier, General Manager, Eastern Operations
Company Highline Produce Limited
Location Leamington, Kingsville and Wellington, ON
Core Business Mushroom Farming and Composting
Strongco Customer Approx. 20 years
Equipment Sales 8 x L90H Volvo Wheel Loaders                
2 x L110H Volvo Wheel Loaders
Product Support

Full Maintenance & Repair, 3 years

Strongco recently completed a multi-unit Volvo wheel loader and product support deal with Highline Produce Limited, Canada’s largest mushroom producer, with growing facilities in Leamington, Kingsville and Wellington, as well as Western Canada.

Negotiated by Strongco Product Support Specialist, Al Glover, Highline’s equipment purchase includes eight Volvo L90H and two L110H wheel loaders. In addition, Highline has engaged Strongco’s Ontario Construction Equipment division to provide full maintenance and repair to the machines for a three-year period.

Delivered in April of this year, the Volvo machines, considered the loader of choice globally in this particular industry, will be utilized in moving the raw compost base, as well as grading around the farm. With the arrival of the new machinery, Highline's fleet of Volvo equipment will grow to 13 units.

“We’re extremely pleased with a number of unique features available in the Volvo suite, including the 360-degree camera monitor system, which allows multiple operators to move materials on the same job site,“ said Joe Cartier, General Manager, Eastern Operations at Highline. “Perhaps the biggest differentiator for Highline is Volvo’s state-of-the-art lifting mechanism, known as torque parallel linkage, which provides high breakout force throughout the entire lifting cycle. This is a benefit to our type of work, as often our operators start their lift well above ground level, as well as at ground level, so they have the best of both worlds, along with parallel lift at all times.”

"Highline has been a valued customer of Strongco for approximately 20 years, and has been at the forefront of many great technological advances in the North American mushroom industry. We are proud to be able to build on our longstanding partnership, as they continue to grow their business," said Oliver Nachevski, Vice President, Construction Equipment at Strongco. "Our reputation for delivering sales, service and maintenance excellence, allows us to continue meeting customers’ increasing demands for best-in-class equipment and product support."
