Samuel Expanding in Winnipeg
 
Samuel, Son & Co. Ltd., will invest more than $16 million in an expansion project at its Winnipeg, Manitoba, facility over the next 12 months, reports Tom McGrogan, president of Samuel Canadian Service Centers.

The project includes a 25,000-square-foot expansion to the current 88,000-square-foot facility. It is intended to house a Bradbury cut-to-length line capable of processing coil up to 0.500 inch thick by 96 inches wide in lengths up to 50 feet. The line will be further enhanced with a new Butech Bliss Stretcher Leveler capable of producing stress and memory-free product up to 85,000 psi yield strength. Increased lifting capacity will also be added to the facility to handle coils up to 80,000 pounds.

Samuel is also upgrading its existing heavy-gauge cut-to-length line in Winnipeg by adding a new Precision Leveler from Herr-Voss Stamco equipped with the new Veritas Drive Technology. Capacity of this line will be up to 0.250 inch thick by 72 inches wide at 75,000 psi yield strength and will provide improved shape correction. This upgraded line will complement the new stretcher leveler.

"These additions and upgrades to our leveling capability show our commitment to the Winnipeg market and will allow us to provide the most consistent quality product available in the industry today," says McGrogan.
