Finning and The Cat Rental Store help build lasting legacy in Prince George and Northern B.C.
Finning Canada and The Cat Rental Store are the Official Suppliers of Heavy Equipment for the 2015 Canada Winter Games running until March 1st in Prince George.
The Games are the largest multi-sport and cultural event to ever be held in Prince George and northern British Columbia. Athletes from across Canada are competing.
As official sponsors, Finning has provided equipment to help power, heat and light the outdoor venues and heavy equipment for outdoor capital projects.
“Behind every sponsorship, there’s a great story of how the partnership will impact the 2015 Canada Winter Games,” explains Games’ CEO, Stuart Ballantyne. “Finning and The Cat Rental Store’s commitment to providing power generation and heavy equipment means, for example, that snowboarding athletes in Prince George and the north central region will have a top-notch facility for training leading up to and following the 2015 Games. And visiting athletes from across Canada will experience the snowboarding course during the Games. Legacies will literally be built from the investment that Finning Canada is making.”
Finning general manager Don Gowan added: “We are really looking forward to the 2015 Canada Winter Games and leaving a lasting legacy for Northern BC. The decision to partner was an easy one for us. This is the largest multi-sport event the region has ever experienced, so we didn’t hesitate to contribute.”
