Ashtead entered the Canadian market under the Sunbelt Rentals brand in 2014 with the acquisition of a General Tool business and now have a broad based business with stores in Alberta, British Colombia, Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.  We have complemented our General Tool business with the introduction of our Specialty businesses to introduce cross-selling and drive rental penetration.

In 2019, we expanded our Specialty business into the provision of production set and on-set equipment, services and studio facilities to the motion picture, digital media and television industries through the acquisition of William F. White.  In total, we now have 81 locations in Canada.
