North Shore Industrial Wheel achieved the goal of becoming ISO9001-2000 registered and upgraded our CWB certification to CSA 47.1 Division 2.1.
Due to the growth and increased demands from Sudbury, Timmins and surrounding areas NSIW moved into a larger 14,000 sq. ft facility in Sudbury. This move would give us increased warehousing, new paint line and bake oven to impove quality, through put and reduce turn around time.
With the growth of all of our branches we found it necessary to establish a corporate headquarters in the birthplace in North Shore Industrial Wheel. (Sault Ste Marie) This would provide centralized services such as administration, human resources, purchasing, logistics, engineering & technical support for all branches.
Stevenson Wheel – Saskatoon,Sask. became part of the NSIW family. This addition to the NSIW Group will greatly assist our expansion into western Canada
Opened the Thompson location to service the mining industry of Northern Manitoba.
Opened our new 45,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Sault Ste Marie.
Opened our new 20,000 square foot facility in Edmonton Alberta to service western Canada.
A major investment was made in our Sault Ste Marie location with the purchase of 3 new VTL machines and a new 1 million dollar paint line.
