A southern Alberta equipment company has sold its industrial division and fleet to a national firm, it was announced Tuesday.

Modern Equipment Rentals, which has yards in Medicine Hat and Calgary, will become an area outlet for Cooper Equipment. That company is based largely in Ontario and Quebec, but this summer added branches in Calgary, Edmonton area and Lethbridge when it bought a separate company, Alberta Lift.

“This acquisition broadens our presence in Western Canada and allows us to bring the Cooper difference to customers throughout southern Alberta,” said CEO Darryl Cooper.

“We are pleased to welcome the Modern folks to the Cooper team.”

The Modern outlet in Brier Park advertises a large selection of newer heavy shovels, heaters, air compressors, pipeline equipment and power equipment.

Modern Rentals also offers wedding and event supplies through a separate wing of the company.
