Owned by Don Ahern, Ahern Canada is the fifth regional distribution outlet to open, following in the footsteps of Ahern Australia, Ahern Japan, Ahern Deutschland and Ahern Chile. All Ahern International businesses are focused on the sale and service of Snorkel aerial lifts and Xtreme Manufacturing telehandlers.

Ahern Canada is located at a facility in West Edmonton, strategically located to be able to support the equipment requirements of rental companies and contractors across the country, as well as the resources and energy sectors. The 836 square metre (9,000 square ft) facility houses a large showroom, offices, a spare parts warehouse and workshop for equipment servicing and repairs.

The Edmonton branch will hold a significant stock of Snorkel and Xtreme spare parts to support equipment in the field, as well as an inventory of new Snorkel lifts and Xtreme Manufacturing telehandlers, ready to fulfil immediate customer requirements. Ahern Canada also has a field sales team covering Eastern and Western Canada, and offers both on-site and field service and repair capabilities.
