A Quebec-based firm has found that expanding their operation to New Hampshire has helped them build a bridge to ongoing company success.
Structal-Bridges, a division of Montreal-based Canam Steel Corp., has expanded its Claremont operation where it has renovated and expanded to a new 226,000-square-foot steel plant and plans to hire 100 new employees over the next year.
Structal-Bridges, established more than 50 years ago, is a leading North American manufacturer of steel bridges, structural bearings and expansion joints for the highway, railway and forestry industries in both Canada and the United States. It operates plants with a combined annual production capacity of close to 75,000 tons in Quebec City, Laval and St. Gédéon de Beauce in Canada, as well as in Claremont and Point of Rocks, MD, in the United States.
The NH Division of Economic Development is assisting the company with its expansion plans through tax credit incentives, job training and workforce recruitment.
“Structal’s Claremont operation has invested millions of dollars into a new high tech steel plant overlooking the beautiful Connecticut River,” said New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Business Development Manager Michael Bergeron. “This new location symbolizes not only the great selection of Claremont as an innovative and progressive place to do business but also a great opportunity for an excellent company to continue with its growth strategy.”
Structal-Bridges Plant Manager Robert Petrino is currently looking to hire experienced welders and fitters and is offering relocation assistance for those who qualify. To learn more about this great opportunity, call (603) 542-5202.
