Norseman has announced an agreement with Five Bo, a St. Albert, Alta.,-based multi-line independent representation agent, to represent Norseman products to the equipment rental channel. Five Bo is active in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. It will offer Norseman heater duct, air conditioning duct, insulated blankets, secondary containment berms, debris netting, PE tarps, snow tarps and more. Five Bo will maintain a base inventory for emergency fill and small orders with most product continuing to ship from Norseman in Calgary, Edmonton, Langley, B.C., or Newmarket, Ont.

“Our decision to partner with Five Bo was based not only on their combined experience of over 75 years with small to heavy equipment and in the equipment rental industry,” said Gary Webb, Norseman’s business director for construction and ventilation, “but also on their commitment to not just sell product, but to be a solutions provider.”

“Five Bo Inc is excited to partner with Norseman as their manufacturer representative to the rental industry in Western Canada,” said Jim Boddez, president of Five Bo. “The ownership group of Five Bo has a history with Norseman and Northwest Tent and Awning stretching back close to 100 years when our families settled in Western Canada. In addition, we have been working with tarps and ducting from Norseman in the rental market since the late 1980s.  We are looking forward to providing our rental partners another ‘solution’ in the form of ducting, tarping and containment from Norseman.”
