Samuel, Son & Co Expanding Winnipeg Facility

Written by Sandy Williams

Samuel, Son & Co., Ltd. is investing more than $16 million in an expansion project at its Winnipeg, Manitoba facility.

The project will expand the current 88,000 square foot facility by 25,000 square feet and house a Bradbury Cut-to-Length line capable of producing product from coil up to .500 thick x 96” wide in lengths up to 50 feet. In addition, the line will be enhanced with a new BuTech Bliss Stretcher Leveler capable of generating stress and memory free product up to 85,000 psi yield strength. Increased lifting capacity will also be added to the facility providing the opportunity to process from coils weighing up to 80,000 lbs.

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. The line will have a capacity of up to .250 thick x 72” wide at 75,000psi yield strength and will provide improved shape correction beyond that of traditional roller-leveling. This upgraded line will complement the new stretcher leveler.

“These additions and upgrades to our levelling capability show our commitment to the Winnipeg market and will allow us to provide the most consistent quality product available in the industry today,” states Tom McGrogan, president of Samuel Canadian Service Centers. “The added processing capacity delivers the level of service that our customers deserve and have grown to expect from Samuel.”

The first phase of this project is expected to be complete by August 2014.
