Can-Eng Furnaces International Limited reports it has added a second plant at Port Colborne, Ont., to manufacture and assemble industrial furnaces, in response to high demand. The new location has been in operation since early April, and has 30 workers.
The Niagara Falls company designs and builds thermal-processing systems for heat-treating ferrous and nonferrous metals, including batch and continuous systems with various handling techniques. It said the new site is close to its main engineering and production shops in Niagara Falls, and provides extra floor space for building industrial furnaces to supply its various customer segments. The latter includes steel processors, automotive parts suppliers, aluminum foundries, and aftermarket heat-treaters.
A Can-Eng representative explained that growing demand over the past six to nine months prompted the decision to add more space for assembling and fabricating furnace chambers and systems. She declined to specify the origins of the demand, indicating that the interest in new heat-treating systems is international and represents all aspects of its customer base.
