Almost one year after emerging from bankruptcy under new ownership, Hydro Mobile believes offering used equipment will help mason contractors in a difficult business environment.

“We can now offer used machines, refurbished and supported by our own extended warranty at a very competitive price,” said Benoit Duplessis, president of the mast climbing work platform manufacturer. “This new venture allows us to buy used equipment and facilitate equipment trading, allowing fleet upgrades at a reduced cost.”

Duplessis acknowledges Hydro Mobile, based in Quebec, has kept a low profile under new owner, AGF Group. Giving contractors stronger financial, operational, and technical support, along with the used equipment initiative and financial programs through its distributors will be helpful, he said. Visit
