CHETWYND, British Columbia – SMS Equipment, headquartered in Acheson, AB, has opened a new branch in Chetwynd in the industrial park. The company hired an additional six fulltime employees to support the mining, construction, forestry and utility industries in the region.
The new branch will continue to support the Chetwynd and Tumbler Ridge regions; however, the added capacity will allow SMS Equipment to support the needs within a fast growing mining industry where a large Komatsu equipment fleet already exists.
“We are currently looking for an additional 15 local service technicians to support our customers” said Chris Hort, general manager of the region.
SMS Equipment is North America’s largest Komatsu dealer. The company offers a variety of services through more than 40 branches in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Northwest Territories and Yukon.
