FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WF Steel & Crane Completes Expansion at Flagship Location
Edmonton, Alberta WF Steel & Crane Ltd. is very excited to announce that we have completed our expansion at our flagship location at 2107-6 Street Nisku. The expansion added 25% more production space to a total of 48,000 square feet of indoor steel processing and fabrication space. In addition, we installed a 100 x 330’ outdoor 20 ton crane way to unload raw materials and load conveyors in order to feed production. In the processing area, in addition to our Peddinghaus CNC Plasma cutting table and Angle Master we added a new 2021 Peddinghaus BDL 1250/9D Drill line fit with 1250-510 band saw that will double our current steel processing capability. This facility has heavy overhead crane capacity with 29’ under the hook so ideal for shop assembly of steel modules.
The expansion completed at our 2107-6 street facility combined with our 602-22 ave facility gives us over 110, 000 square feet of manufacturing space and has allowed us to end our lease at our Shop 2 410-24 ave facility without losing production capability and will therefore make WF Steel & Crane more efficient and add more value to our customers.
The Shop 2 move out will be completed by the end of the year and a result there is some equipment that will no longer be needed, such as overhead cranes and steel processing equipment and sold at our November 2nd auction.

One last announcement. We surveyed our employees and they voted that we change the names of our facilities.
We are excited for the future and thank you for your attention.
Calgary, Alberta (July 1, 2020) WF Steel & Crane, has officially landed in southern Alberta. After 30 years of servicing out of Edmonton, the opportunity and need to open a secondary location in Calgary has arrived. WF Steel & Crane services and repairs cranes from a variety of manufacturers. They provide inspections, repairs, and general servicing much like the needs of a regular car. They provide maintenance programs, testing, training, and other safety solutions as required. The new Calgary branch will allow WF Steel & Crane to better service its customers in the area by providing improved emergency response times and lower cost service.
WF Steel & Crane has been operating since 1987.

“WF has had many loyal customers in the Calgary area who were willing to pay for us to travel from Edmonton to do their crane service work. After careful consideration and years of planning we now have committed to opening a Calgary location to repay that customer loyalty and expand our services to new customers in Southern Alberta. We are so excited for this opportunity to serve the Calgary market in a much greater way.” – Ian Olthuis, Managing Director
