San Antonio, Texas – Calgary, Alberta – September 22, 2016 – Wayfinder Corp. and Robert Ober & Associates announce the partnership of Ober’s Plant Materials LLC as the primary material handling design-builder for the new Wayfinder Corp. multi-use terminal and specialty plant facility located near Hinton, Alberta.
The primary contract is for the largest rail-to-truck terminal and resin-coating facility of its kind in western Canada and will be utilizing a former coal handling rail infrastructure that provides prime access to a CN rail location. “Wayfinder Corp. is excited to be adding another great partner to our project. This is a pivotal milestone in advancing towards the completion of our facility,” says Chad Bremner, CEO of Wayfinder Corp.
Plant Materials will execute the project with its considerable Alberta-based operations and partners. “Our design and engineering office is fully engaged in the project from our Design Centre located in San Antonio, the majority of the equipment is slated for fabrication in Calgary. 100% of the labor on the project will be sourced from our Alberta base of operations”, says Alec Woodson, VP Project Development for Plant Materials, LLC.
A unique design team consisting of Wayfinder Corp.-sourced experts, and Plant Materials’ industrial, civil, mechanical, and material-handling engineers, have allowed the project to launch fast-track into the imposing Alberta autumn with excavation and concrete works already underway. “Winter construction on the Front Range of the Northern Rockies in Alberta is not for the faint of heart,” says Robert Ober, Chairman of Plant Materials, “Our firm and our Alberta partners have toughed out a number of winter projects in Northern Alberta over the years, and we are proud to be working with Wayfinder Corp. in preparing together for this unique and challenging project”.
