| CORPORATE MEMBER PROFILE CanCrete Equipment Ltd. aims to be a leading supplier of shotcrete equipment, parts, and associated repair in the Canadian industrial pumping market. Established in 2013, CanCrete Equipment acquired the Toronto location of Shotcrete Plus, which was previously operated in the late 1980s and ‘90s by Bill Toth as Kato Construction Equipment. CanCrete is a family-run business that has a long history of supporting the shotcrete industry in Ontario, and more specifically the Greater Toronto area. Leveraging decades of concrete forming and pumping experience within the family, CanCrete puts a large emphasis on ensuring that all employees gain significant “handson” site experience to equip them in supporting customers every day. QUALITY With a focus in recent years on product sourcing, you can count on CanCrete having the right part in stock with the best available quality—always at a fair price. Having worked with concrete for over 25 years, the team understands the capabilities of cementitious materials—with knowledge stemming from mixture design to the type of pump used, to the nozzle used to spray the material. This experience drives the parts that CanCrete keeps in stock every day, ready when a customer calls—be it a gasket, a 2 in. (50 mm) HD shotcrete nozzle, pipe, hose, an S-tube, or a hydraulic pump. RELATIONSHIPS Whether a client is purchasing a pump, renting a pump, or picking up a length of hose, the team intends to foster the relationship with ongoing support. The Mississauga shop is always ready for a seasonal service or an urgent repair; our factory-trained mechanics understand the urgency of minimizing downtime and are thorough in checking over equipment to ensure that it hits the jobsite running. We support our clients with site training, warehouse demonstrations, partnerships with material suppliers, and in-house training with our manufacturers. CanCrete aims to provide solutions that are focused on customer profitability and success. EQUIPMENT EXPERIENCE Proudly representing several superior quality brands, CanCrete has established a robust network with a focus on the end user and their needs on the jobsite.
