Ross Equipment has come a long way since its foundation in 1948. Established as a forklift and machinery repair shop over 65 years ago, Ross Equipment enjoyed tremendous growth and success until Hansler Industries Ltd eventually acquired the business in 1988. Hansler Industries represents the Linde line of forklifts throughout Ontario and Quebec and currently operates out of 7 locations. Ross Equipment is constantly growing and diversifying the products and industries it serves. In addition to continued success in the forklift business, Ross Equipment now specializes in warehouse racking and design, loading dock sales and installation, cleaning equipment and floor scrubbers/sweepers and more.
In addition to equipment sales, Ross features a catalog of allied warehouse products ranging from storage bins to safety gear and beyond. Ross Equipment is constantly striving to become a true one-stop warehouse and material handling supplier. Like Hansler, Ross Equipment is Manitoba’s exclusive dealer for Linde forklifts. Ross Equipment is also an authorized dealer for some of the globe’s top manufacturers of equipment including Doosan, Blue Giant, Factory Cat and JLG.
We offer a full selection of new machines from these brands but also features an ever-growing used equipment inventory and a second-to-none service team. Ross currently employs 9 service technicians, both in-shop and on the road, to ensure that customers have long-term functionality from their equipment purchases and face minimal downtime.
Ross Equipment is proud to maintain its local Winnipeg ownership and operation. Current president, Dwayne Sakaluk, has been with Ross Equipment since he was hired as a junior mechanic in 1990 and has been instrumental in Ross’ growth and diversification. A key milestone in his diversification of the company was acquiring Russell Young. Russell has over 25 years of racking and warehouse design experience and is currently an operating partner in the company as well. Ross Equipment also operates a full parts department and has a knowledgeable sales staff.
