June 20th — United Engineering Ramsay Group
United Engineering was established in 1921 as a small service and repair shop. As Canada became involved in WWII, United Engineering was well positioned to service the immediate growth in local industry. After the war, a strong economy and an expanding forest industry presented opportunities serving logging, sawmills and pulp mills. Industry began to move out of Victoria during the eighties and so United branched into structural steel, in addition to service and repair work.
Moving to our current location in 1991, United was able to offer water and barge access. This opened new markets in marine repair and marine construction. In addition, United added several large capacity machines to our machine shop setting United apart from other shops. In 2001 United bought a CNC burning table and began to stock steel inventory to compliment our shearing, forming and heavy plate fabrication services.
Carpooling from the Centre at 9:30 am. Lunch to be announced.
