Weir Opens New Canadian Distribution Center


Frac sand processing-equipment manufacturer Weir Minerals relocated its Weir Minerals Canada Fort McMurray, Alberta, service and distribution operation to a new facility in the MacKenzie Industrial Park. This 19,000-sq.-ft. facility will support customers in the Athabasca Oil Sands with a much larger presence for customer service/order entry, inventory and field service operations in this expanding marketplace, according to the company.

The relocation project began April 2012 and triples its secure storage and adds two service bays to better support customers. As customers continue to award Weir Minerals Canada with new original equipment orders, the business has responded by making a significant investment in this new facility and the required inventory to ensure they continue to offer market leading service and solutions that delight their customers.
 
Weir Minerals Canada hosted an Open House on Sept. 11 to mark the Grand Opening. The Open House coincided with the Oil Sands Tradeshow Exposition being held Sept. 10-11 at the Suncor Community Center.
