Always a good conversation to be had at a CRA event.

Oct. 16, 2014 – It was a merry crowd that dropped by the Canadian Rental Association national head office on Oct. 15 to see the new lair of Nathalie McGregor, executive manager, and Jenna Lansky, office assistant administrator, in Stoney Creek, Ont. Members enjoyed some beverages and finger food, then removed to nearby Grimsby, Ont., for a nice dinner and some updates from Ontario CRA president, Paul Potvin (White’s Location Equipment Supply).

Around 20 members attended the event, including national Ontario director, Mike Maltby (Ingersoll Rent-All), national CRA chairman, Jeff Campbell (St. Thomas Rent-All), national director-at-large, Neil De Jong (ITE Rentals) and most of the Ontario board. The new office is located just outside Hamilton, Ont., in a modern industrial office complex right next to major highways connecting to Toronto and the rest of southern Ontario. Large rental operations are nearby, including CAT Rentals and Contractors Rental Supply.

Rental stores can score a little free exposure in the Member’s Area.


 

McGregor said the new location is a significant upgrade from the Winnipeg offices and has made possible some additional services to members. One of these is a special “member’s area” of the office where any CRA member can put a piece of their equipment or party inventory to show visitors what is available from Canadian rental stores. The space is presently occupied by a very attractive table setting by Absolute Tent and Event Services, but McGregor says she plans to rotate the items on display and is willing to put anything in the space provided it fits.
