– EAST MEETS WEST –
Toronto, Canada (July 5th, 2016) – Paul Bronfman, Chairman/CEO of Comweb Corp. and leading equipment provider, William F. White International Inc. (Whites), has announced today that the Remote Heads & Cranes department at Whites Toronto will be combining its vast inventory with Whites Telescopic Camera Cranes Ltd. (WTCC) in Vancouver, resulting in a new nationally unified department at Whites entitled, WHITES SPECIALTY EQUIPMENT (WSE).
The WSE team will be led by industry veterans Kerry Leger (Manager, Specialty Equipment-Whites Toronto) and Barrie Wells (General Manager, Whites Telescopic Camera Cranes Inc.), who bring over 50 years of combined expertise to this initiative.
“I’m excited to see the department continue to grow,” states Leger. “Now Whites will be able to provide access to the same world-class specialty equipment services and support at each of our locations across the country.”
Leger, who has been at the helm of Whites Toronto’s Camera Cars and Remote Heads & Cranes department since 1999, has been instrumental in its overall growth and success over the years. Wells’ original company, Telescopic Camera Cranes Inc. which formed in 2000, was acquired by Whites in 2013 and has since thrived thanks to Wells’ proven leadership and entrepreneurial collaborations.
“Being a part of the Whites family has been an incredible experience,” states Wells. “I’m thrilled to help propel the Whites Specialty Equipment brand forward as we continue to provide our clients with unhindered access to the best, most comprehensive and wide-ranging arsenal of specialty equipment right across the entire country.”
WSE will continue to provide our national client base with access to our original world-class inventory of Remote Heads and Cranes, and will also offer expanded products and services including Camera Cars, Motion Control, High Speed Capture, Balloon Lighting, Aerial Services and much more!
“This combined department will now have the scale and ability to effectively and efficiently deliver the best production tools to our clients on a national level,” states Bronfman. “I’m very proud of the hard working Whites employees who made this accomplishment possible. Thank you!”
