A Look Back!
Gaylea and GEA Job Comes to a Close!
The Gay Lea/GEA project is coming to a close very soon. This was a fantastic project for Matcom. It was well over a year job and successful in all accounts. A special thanks goes out to Dylan Keizerwaard and Gareth Haynes who have been at the Teeswater job site for over a year now! This was not an easy job for them as they were away from their homes and families for long stints at a time. When they make it home please give them a warm welcome and a big thank you!
What the Future Holds!
Big Smiles All Around!
Why is everyone smiling? Well it's because the Canada Royal Milk project in Kingston is going amazing! This project has been a huge success for not only Matcom but the town of Kingston as well. This plant is set to bring a 120 jobs to the Kingston area and Matcom is very excited to be a part of it.
3 Dimensional Lift Planning
As many know certain crane lifts can often be quite complex and require an immense level of planning. From the very few complex crane lifts I have seen in my time here, the amount of preparation and planning taken is boarding on the ridiculous. The meticulous detail-oriented focus that goes into these lifts, could make a sane person lose their mind. This stress and confusion can come from a variety of reasons that are unpredictable. It could be something as simple as fluctuating weather conditions like heavy winds or a sudden rain/snow storm.

Industry News
Forget the ‘why’ and focus on the ‘how’ to retain women in the trades!
"There have been multiple studies, including one we’ve done and one in British Columbia, that document the reason women aren’t in the trades is because this industry and other industries suffer from institutional gender discrimination,”
