Raydan eyes Ontario expansion

EDMONTON, (Feb. 7, 2005) — Alberta-based suspensions and coupling maker Raydan Manufacturing says it is planning to expand to Eastern Canada, namely Ontario.

Now that its new 12,000 square-foot chassis modification facility in Alberta almost complete, the company is actively looking to meet demand by acquiring, partnering or merging with a facility in Ontario in order to establish this market presence.

Over the past two years, the company has seen a significant increase in the demand for tandemizations and modifications, said President Ray English. “We have an increasing number of orders coming into the system,” he said. “The enthusiastic response we received to the Air Link suspension for tandem steer confirms the exciting new direction Raydan is taking.”

The Air Link has been standard equipment with Link-Belt Cranes, Grove Worldwide and Terex Cranes on both the front and rear of their truck crane models for over seven years, and the U.S. fire rescue industry has also been quick to see the benefits of using the Air Link. Raydan’s focus is now the vocational truck market. The Air Link is currently offered as an option through Mack Trucks, Inc., Freightliner LLC, International Trucks and Western Star.
