A great deal has been made of NAFTA during the recent elections, although very little was mentioned of the relationship between the US and Canada. Given that the US enjoys most favored nation status with Canada, which gives us a significant break on energy pricing, little will probably be done as it relates to our Northern border.
The US now enjoys a 30% exchange advantage over the Canadian dollar. Imagine having an automatic and immediate cushion of 30% when approaching capital projects. Fuel costs remain low and intermodal shipping is improving costs on long haul deliveries. Engineering standards and language are not seen as stumbling blocks. So...what's the sense in not considering Canadian sources for capital projects?
We met up with Bell-Camp Manufacturing at the recent PowerGen trade show in Orlando, and came away being impressed with their capabilities and opportunities for the US and export markets. Bell-Camp specializes in heavy tonnage steel work such as pressure vessels, tanks, piping, penstocks, and stacks. In fact - we went forward to represent Bell-Camp in the markets we cover.
Please feel free to contact us regarding your “heavy metal” project!
