Primary Equipment to distribute RMT Equipment in Northern Ontario
By Primary Equipment Limited
June 9, 2015 – Marc Paquet, founder and area sales manager of Primary Equipment Limited, has been named a distributor for RMT Equipment’s full line of VEI loader scales and Track-Vision safety cameras to their customer base in Northern Ontario.
“My relationship with RMT’s managing director Hugo Lariviere, vice-president of operations and sales goes back to day one,” says Paquet. “I’ve sold VEI scales for years, but Primary Equipment has only been carrying the RMT products since late 2014. Customer feedback to date has been very positive.”
A five-year-old, family-owned and operated business, Primary Equipment caters to the mining, forestry and construction sectors. The company serves a relatively large geographical area from Parry Sound, Ont., to Thunder Bay, Ont. Paquet says this keeps him on the road “almost every waking moment.”
Paquet’s company is designed to be a one-stop shop for sales, service and parts. He says the addition of the RMT’s loader scales and backup safety camera systems definitely complements his business.
“The RMT products have helped us sell our used equipment,” says Paquet. “When a customer buys a used loader, he usually wants a VEI loader scale installed. When a customer buys the scales, they may come back for a loader later on.”
Factory-trained by RMT technicians at the firm’s Quebec headquarters, Paquet does all the installs himself.
“Installing RMT loader scales and safety cameras on customers’ equipment keeps me busy in the off-season,” he says. “It also lets me know who may be in the market for a loader.”
Paquet says he appreciates the support he receives from RMT Equipment.
“The folks at RMT have been great. When we need something, they’re always there for us.”
