Focus on Steel
Canuck steel in demand for U.S. projects
Experience, training bodes well for Canadian steel fabricators
Times are good these days in the U.S. for some of Canada’s largest structural steel fabricators.
Take Canam’s Quebec-based Structal Division, for example. It has landed a number of major contracts over the years in the U.S. and is currently working on two high-profile projects in New York City: a $40 million steel fabrication contract for the new Yankee Stadium and a $70 million job to fabricate and erect structural steel for Citi Field, the new home of the New York Mets.
Luc Pelland, president of the steel giant’s Structal Division and the man heading up the two NYC stadium jobs, says one of the reasons for Canam’s success on American soil is Canam Steel Corp., an office it setup in the U.S. to gain a bigger piece of the American pie.
