“From this mining base, we have expanded our services to include many products such as vessels, bridges, conveyors, construction and forestry equipment, and specialized fire training equipment and custom fabrication.”
According to Industry Canada, the company had total sales between $1 million and $5 million in early 2014. In the same period, Baycar Steel's exports were between $500,000 and $1 million.
