Sterling Crane to Expand Western Canada Operations
Company Agrees to Acquire Canadian Crane Assets of ENTREC Corporation

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada (December 12, 2019) – Sterling Crane, a Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway company, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Canadian crane assets of ENTREC Corporation.

Completion of the acquisition is expected in early 2020. At that time, ENTREC’s Canadian crane operations will be integrated into Sterling Crane. ENTREC will continue to own and operate its heavy haul transportation business in Canada.

Based in Edmonton, Sterling Crane has served the Canadian energy, natural resource, construction, and industrial markets since 1954. It is part of Marmon Crane Services, Inc., whose diverse fleet of more than 1,200 mobile cranes is among the world’s largest.

ENTREC’s Canadian crane rental operations focus primarily on the oil and natural gas, construction, petrochemical, mining and power generation industries in Alberta and British Columbia.

“This acquisition is an excellent fit for Sterling Crane,” said John Roberts, President of Marmon Crane Services. “ENTREC’s modern fleet of mobile cranes and support equipment will complement and augment Sterling Crane’s current operations.”

ENTREC’s Alberta crane rental operations will be integrated into Sterling Crane branches in Edmonton, Ft. McMurray, and Grande Prairie. ENTREC’s Terrace, British Columbia branch will be operated as a new branch of Sterling Crane.

“We are excited to enhance Sterling Crane’s service to our customers in Western Canada’s growing infrastructure, energy, and mining markets,” Roberts said. “In addition to the region’s strategic business importance, our company’s roots are here. We are pleased to further invest in these communities and increase opportunities with the local workforce.”

In addition to Sterling Crane in Canada, Marmon Crane Services includes crane companies in the U.S. (Sterling Crane and Joyce Crane) and Australia (Freo and WGC Cranes). It is part of Marmon Holdings, Inc., a global industrial organization comprising 11 diverse business groups and more than 125 autonomous manufacturing and service businesses. Marmon is a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
