Frontline Machinery buys Chieftain Equipment

Frontline Machinery has acquired Chieftain Equipment and its aggregate processing equipment lineup.

Founded in 1991, Chieftain Equipment is an aggregate equipment dealer based in the Edmonton, Alberta, region. It carries Astec Group’s static and mobile crushing and screening, material handling, washing, and classifying product lines; Sandvik mobile crushers and screens; Vale Industries, and more.

Frontline says the acquisition increases its infrastructure and personnel, allowing for continued growth in Alberta, Yukon, and the Northwest Territories. The company plans to ramp up regional operational and service capabilities by increasing parts and service department capacities, and the equipment rental and sales fleet.

“We are excited to become a part of the Frontline family,” said Willie Thompson of Chieftain Equipment.

“They understand the needs of our customers and share a common vision and mindset. We are confident that Frontline will continue to enhance and develop what we have built over the last three decades while supporting the uptime and productivity of existing Chieftain customers.”

Frontline Machinery plans to provide a fully integrated material processing equipment and service portfolio consisting of crushing, screening, washing, conveying, grinding, chipping, and shredding.
