Industrial manufacturing

With approximately $14.5 billion per year of existing activity, Alberta is one of Canada’s major metal manufacturing centres, behind only Ontario. Thanks to a strong demand from Alberta’s energy sector, there are a number of opportunities for the province’s metal manufacturing companies. Tens of billions of dollars are being spent in both the oil sands and conventional oil and gas sectors each year.

Demand in Alberta will require nearly $200 billion of new construction and maintenance spending over the next twenty-five years, much of it for fabricated metal products.
