Unalloy-IWRC Partners with O’Brien Installations

Recently, O’Brien Installations Limited announced Unalloy-IWRC, a division of Samuel, Son & Co.,  will become the exclusive authorized O’Brien crane dealer representing the Northern Ontario market.

O’Brien cranes have become the material handling equipment of choice for many mining and manufacturing companies in Northern Ontario since 2006, when O’Brien aligned with Cranewerx as their dealer. Due to the recent passing of its owner, the late Mike Doherty, Cranewerx has ceased its operations. “Mike built a very respectable customer base in a short period of time, by supplying great quality crane products and exceptional service”, says Wayne Davis, Vice-President at O’Brien Installations Limited. “By partnering with Unalloy-IWRC, existing users of our equipment will continue to receive the highest quality material handling equipment and service they’ve come to expect. With Unalloy-IWRC as our dealer, we are positioned to increase our service capabilities and support in Northern Ontario”.

There are innate synergies between the two companies. Unalloy-IWRC has established a solid reputation as a national company, supplying high performance wire rope, rigging products and perforated metals through a network of 7 strategically located service centers including Sudbury and Timmins, Ontario. Adding a line of overhead, jib and workstation cranes compliments an already impressive offering. “We are excited to add the extensive line of O’Brien material handling equipment to our offering and we are looking forward to building a long lasting business relationship that provides our customers with above and below the hook solutions” says Kevin Smith, Director of Business Development & Marketing.

Unalloy-IWRC will offer sales and 24 hour service for the complete O’Brien line of crane products including: overhead cranes, gantry cranes, jib cranes, workstation bridge cranes, monorail cranes, lifting beams, hoists and parts.
