Manulift opens new operations centre in Stoney Creek, Ontario
Manulift is opening a 10-million-dollar operations centre in the Greater Toronto Area, strategically situated on the QEW in Stoney Creek, Ontario (near Hamilton).
Manulift has a long history of helping construction contractors to improve their productivity and we are present in special markets as well. Manulift is proud to be a supplier to the Canadian Armed Forces and we are contributing to the construction of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT – an 8-billion-dollar project that will provide Toronto with a new world class light rail system by 2021.
"We are privileged and honoured to participate in the development of projects like the LRT in Toronto and we will be there as the Queen City continues to grow," says Martin Drolet, President of Manulift.
The state-of-the-art Manulift service centre in Stoney Creek covers some 30,000 square feet. It is designed to cater to the needs of clients who work in building, tunnelling, mining, public works, recycling and other industries.
"The addition of Manulift Stoney Creek (Hamilton) to our facilities in Calgary, Montreal and Quebec City and our national distribution network will allow us to accelerate our growth over the next five years," says Drolet.
About 300 people work in maintenance and support jobs at Manulift.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
