Strutural steel maker expects to produce more than 25,000 tons a year when facility opens in late 2013.
TERREBONNE, Que.—Structural steel manufacturer ADF Group Inc. has received approval from its board to build a new $24 million fabrication facility in Montana.
The 100,000 square-foot complex in Great Falls, Mont. will have state-of-the-art equipment similar to what ADF has at its main operation in Terrebonne, Que, north of Montreal. The plant is expected to be operational by the end of 2013. It will have an annual fabrication capacity of more than 25,000 tons.
The company will also set up a structural steel fabrication and pre-assembly yard adjacent to the plant.
ADF says the new US fabrication plant will expand its reach westward and give the company a better chance to win US public infrastructure contract. It is a specialist in making special-purpose sturtural steel use in commercial, industrial, institutional and public sectors.
Among ADF’s recent projects is an antenna to crown a New York skyscraper being built on the site of the former World Trade Centre towers.
