Last week I had the opportunity to meet with Will Wilson, Alberta Branch Manager of Cubix Limited here in Calgary. Among other pieces of industrial equipment, Cubix is now carrying small electric utility vehicles crafted in Canada by Westward Industries.
These Zero-Emission Lithium-ion Industrial vehicles are perfect for a multitude of applications.
They are street legal on most roads in major cities including suburban streets. (Speed limits must be 40 kph or less)
The on-board battery management system keeps the battery healthy long term and these little EUV’s function quite well in colder weather.
Even Canada Post is getting on board!
If you’re in need of moving people and products, and are concerned about your carbon footprint, a Westward EUV might be the perfect fit. And, you can lease it! To learn more, reach out to Will at 1-855-538-1425.
A few weeks back, Priority Leasing provided lease financing for their very first ROBOT.

CBC Radio recently posted an article about robots in the workplace, and it made me ponder my perception of robotics a little bit. They are not necessarily the andriod-like creatures of boundary-pushing science (and science fiction ?), nor an invasive replacement for human jobs. They are a tool. A tool to help us do our jobs better, faster and with less risk. And, like so many tools, they can be leased.
So, I thought I would share a couple of the upsides of leasing a robot.
For example, the robot is a one-time expense you can lease over time. Whereas an employee is paid every year, hopefully with periodic increases. Also, a leased robot does not require employer contributions for CPP, etc. Please do not get me wrong. I don’t want to see robots taking away jobs but as the article clearly states… “they’re not all coming for our jobs”.
Perhaps think about leasing this way…. you wouldn’t pay your receptionist 3 years in advance, would you? It’s the same for equipment that works for you. You pay as it performs.
