Why WestMat


Enhance Canadian lives by redefining the industrial equipment industry with Elite People, Products & Service.

Western Materials Handling & Equipment Ltd. was founded in 1970 and was the first Toyota forklift dealership in Canada.  We are Canadian owned and operated, now with 6 locations, committed to bringing the best customer service everyday.  To provide an extra service to our customers, we have a large fleet of fully equipped service vehicles and welding trucks.  In conjunction with our Toyota line, we are also pleased to offer Aichi Scissor Lifts, Load Lifter Rough Terrain, and Kalmar high capacity trucks. This allows us to offer a wide range of products from power jacks to high capacity rough terrain container handlers.

Our sales staff are committed to providing you the right unit to fit your application.  Through a site survey, we can assess your needs and provide you with the most cost effective solution, and even provide a demo if you would like to see the unit in your application.  If a rental is what you require, our extensive and flexible fleet surely has what you’re looking for.  Our parts department is strongly supported by Toyota, Load Lifter, Aichi and Kalmar Industries, allowing us to provide you with genuine replacement parts quickly and efficiently in order to keep your fleet running smoothly with minimal downtime.

Our focus is to serve you, our customer. Since our very first day in business, our motto has been “Our Service Built Our Company” and we will continue to follow this motto every day. We are here for you and invite you to give us a call or drop by for a visit to see what we can do for you and your business.
