New home for Canada’s largest Aerospace Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul business.
Another exciting construction project at Hamilton International is the $40 million expansion at KF Aerospace (KFA). In late 2019, KFA completed its new 75,000 square foot wide-body aircraft hangar.
Currently KFA is working to complete its third hangar that includes a training facility for Mohawk College Centre for Aviation Technology that consists of four floors and approximately 48,000 square feet of academic space for shops and classrooms that will be home to all of Mohawk College’s aviation programs.
When complete later this year, a total 240,000 square foot facility will enable an additional 275 jobs at KFA and enroll up to 300 students per year in the Mohawk aviation program who can anticipate an impressive 80% graduation and placement rate.
Stelco Canada introduced a new $30 million state-of-the-art batch annealing facility to start shipment of fully processed, annealed cold-rolled steel sheet.
The restart of a modernized and upgraded temper mill, along with installation of new annealing furnaces, will allow Stelco to add a full range of up to 200,000 net tons of fully processed cold-rolled steel to its product mix. With completion of this project, Stelco will now be able to increase service to markets that demand these high-quality products such as the automotive, appliance and service centre markets, as well as the pre-painted steel market for architectural applications.
“We expect to make Stelco a shining example of what Hamilton can do.”Alan Kestenbaum
