REGINA, SASK. — The Brandt Group of Companies based in Regina, Sask. has announced the formation of a new roadbuilding division with plans to open Road Technology centres of excellence in Milton, Ont. and Calgary.
The company was recently appointed the exclusive Canadian dealer for Wirtgen Group roadbuilding equipment, stated an Oct. 28 release. A new business unit, Brandt Road Technology, will operate across Canada through the company’s Brandt Tractor locations.
