Announcing New Ownership, Featuring Projects Across CANADA, USA and COLOMBIA
In a pandemic environment and fluctuating steel market environment, Supermétal has had another strong year. We've completed and started major fulfilment warehouse projects, institutional builds and a new office tower.
A change of ownership was executed this past Spring where CANAM Group has purchased the majority of ownership of the long standing corporation. Supermétal's complex steel project expertise is now complemented by new product offerings including metal "Q" deck, joists, and sandwich panel envelope systems. In addition to the new products, CANAM has one of Canada's largest structural steel fabrication plants, combined we provide customers annual capacity of over 60,000 MT. This makes Supermétal -CANAM the largest fabricator in Canada and in the top 5 in North America. There will be increased amalgamation of the 2 companies so stay tuned for more news and offerings in the upcoming year!
