It’s nice to see manufacturing expansion in hard-hit Alberta. Tremcar recently announced it’s moving into a larger Edmonton facility – three times the size of its original facility, in fact.
The new shop features 11 bays and sits on 10 acres. Tremcar invested $12 million into the new plant and service facility.
“Oil is still producing and trailers are still on the road,” said the company’s pragmatic owner, Jacques Tremblay. “One day they will be older and they will need maintenance. We don’t have any problem serving the market here and we are very confident (in the future). I don’t have a crystal ball, but sometime down the road, it’s going to turn around.”
