Canadian manufacturing continues its slow, but steady, growth. Shop Metalworking Technology, the premier magazine for Canadian metal works and manufacturing industries, says that new export orders went up to 54.5 percent this December, compared to October’s 51.3 percent, thanks to gains made in the U.S. economy and the Canadian dollar. Industry experts are convinced that this growth will persist throughout the rest of 2014, and perhaps the first quarter of next year.

Canada’s energy industry comprises nearly seven percent of the country’s gross domestic product. One of the important components of the industry is the massive pipelines that help deliver oil across the continent. Right now, there are several upcoming pipeline projects slated to begin in the near future. One of them is a pipeline suggested by TransCanada that is supposed to pump over 1.1 billion barrels of oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan to the Eastern Canadian states. With all of this industrial activity, it is no surprise that reliable industrial millwright services like Central Machine and Marine would be needed to help with this expansion. Oil pipelines are major projects that require a lot of metal parts and components to build entire systems. Having a team ready to fabricate the needed parts makes the construction and maintenance of an oil pipeline proceed on schedule.

Oil and natural gas are top fuels that drive several industries today. That’s why it’s important for them to have widespread distribution, whether via oil tankers, roads, or railways; however, the safest and most efficient way to transport oil is via pipelines, which avoids the dangers of spills and derailments. To keep these pipelines in great shape will require the services of a leading fabrication and machine shop in Ontario like Central Machine and Marine.

Cargo shipping is one of the backbones of many modern industries. Container ships ply the seaways with tons of cargo that is used for commercial and industrial purposes; however, the sea can do a lot of damage to a ship. That’s why timely ship repair services are needed to keep these key vessels running. Reliable industrial millwright services from companies like Central Machine and Marine are able to do the necessary repairs needed by damaged ships. Their services can range from propeller repairs to hull patching.
