MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Chesher Equipment Ltd. has announced a change in ownership. According to Chairman Miles Chesher, the company will be passed to Chris Koehler, who has been a partner in the business for the past three years.
“I brought Chris in to help Chesher grow and as my eventual succession plan. I am happy to announce that we have concluded a change in ownership,” says Chesher. “I will be staying on as the Chairman of Chesher for some time yet and helping Chesher to serve our industry in its 50th year. I hope that our business continues to progress in a positive way.
On Oct. 1, Chesher entered its 50th year of operations and significant celebration is planned for later in 2017 to commemorate the milestone event. “I will share more details as the celebration is planned,” says Chesher. “Throughout the year, we will have the 50th anniversary theme in the business culminating in our celebration event. It has been a longstanding goal for my wife Michaela and I to see the 50th year in operation as a tribute to the hard work and dedication of my parents John and Emilie, who started the business in 1967.”
