The construction market in the Pacific Northwest has been expanding along with the post-recession economic rebound. Ashvine Products and Hydro Mobile have been gearing up to meet the demands of masonry, general and specialty contractors in the material supply and access markets. To meet the growing demand, Hydro Mobile and Ashvine Products are joining forces to create a new company called Hydro Rents North West. The new company will sell masonry and waterproofing accessories as well as renting Hydro Mobile Mast Climbing and Material Lift solutions.
Hydro Rents North West took over the Ashvine Products location in Vancouver on December 1, 2014. The staff and management of Ashvine Products will remain with the new venture. Hydro Rents North West will continue to sell and market all current lines of masonry related products, as well as growing the Mast Climbing Scaffolding and Material Lift rental fleet.
Hydro Mobile and Hydro Rents are part of AGF’s access division (www.groupeagf.com) based in L’Assomption, Quebec. Ashvine Products is privately held and based in Vancouver, Washington. Hydro Mobile’s Hydro Rents division will add the North West location (www.northwest.hydro-rents.com) to existing locations in Virginia and Colorado.
Hydro Rents North West will service the states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. The company will provide access solutions, safety training and consultation, erection, dismantling and technical assistance to its customers. The parts and equipment divisions will be expanded, and staff will be added to better serve this growing market.
