High Reach Inc. Bare Rentals, Service & Sales

Santo De Arcangelis started the De Arcangelis Crane Service in 1979 and renamed it to High Reach Inc. in 1982. At that time, he teamed up with George Dudley Warbeck to support and fuel the growth of the company. In 1988, they acquired and expanded the operations by moving the company to a purchased site and expanded to additional sites in 1998 and 2007. In 2009, the first Orion was manufactured to fulfill the clients’ ‘wish list’ features. With multiple locations, they wanted to consolidate under one roof and purchased the retired Oakville Transit Repair Facility in 2012. Over the next several years, they custom tailored upgrades and expansion to launch the new High Reach Inc. location (60,000 sq’ with 6 acres) in 2019, where we are today.

We maintain Canada’s largest and most complete line of Broderson Carry Deck Cranes (capacities from 2½ to 20 tons) and (manufacture here) Orion Heavy Lift Fork Lift Trucks (capacities up to 160,000 lbs.) and Versa-Lift’s large capacity fork lift trucks (capacities to 140,000 lbs.). Our rental fleet is constantly changing to meet our customers’ changing demands.
