Aerial lift manufacturer Versalift has acquired Cannon Truck Equipment, establishing its first company-owned distributor in the Midwest. Renamed Versalift Midwest, this distributor will offer new Versalift truck-mounted aerial lifts, cable placers, and digger derricks. With this acquisition Versalift seeks to deepen its sales, parts and service coverage for the Midwest region.

“With this great team and excellent facility, we expand our ability to serve our valued customers in the American Midwest with well-trained technicians, a detail oriented and professional sales team, and a versatile repair, maintenance and upfitting facility,” said Curt Howell, Versalift CEO, in a statement.

In addition to Versalift products, the distributor will offer cranes and crane bodies, lube trucks, snow and ice equipment, and various dump, service, and utility bodies.

In August 2018, Versalift established its first company-owned distributor, named Versalift Southeast.
