Brampton: Blue Giant Equipment Corporation has become the exclusive Canadian distributor of the Big Joe brand of material handling equipment from Big Lift LLC.

“We think it’s an excellent fit,” said Jeff Miller, Blue Giant’s vice-president of sales and marketing. “Blue Giant and Big Lift LLC have a shared vision, to anticipate the needs of the market and respond by developing new, technologically innovative products.”

The Big Joe by Blue Giant brand of equipment includes the WPT-45 electric pallet truck and the PDS electric straddle truck. Both are AC-powered, which the company said improves performance and reduces maintenance requirements compared to traditional DC-powered motors.
