Headquartered in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and with a location in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, “the acquisition of Oceanside marks our first physical locations in Canada and continues our strategy to expand our core solution offerings and footprint to serve customers locally across North America,” said Harold King, ceo of Bishop Lifting

Oceanside serves the marine, mining, transportation and manufacturing end markets across the country and will maintain its own branding and teams. Greg Maloney, Gary Sullivan, and Vincent Penton will continue in commercial and leadership roles.

Oceanside marks Bishop’s 14th acquisition since 2012, including the acquisition of Atlanta-headquartered Bairstow Lifting Products earlier this year.
