Plaintree Systems Inc. (CNSX: NPT) (“Plaintree”), today announced that its Specialty Structures Division, Triodetic, has received a contract for the engineering and manufacture of a 180 foot galvanized steel industrial dome structure with painted steel cladding for a gold mine in northern Ontario.
Manufacturing of the dome will be at the company’s new state-of-the-art plant in Arnprior, Ontario.
“Needless to say, the mining industry has been very hot over the last year” said David Watson, CEO of Plaintree “and we have been very busy quoting mining stockpile covers. This is a smaller cover for us and is priced at well under CDN $2 million. Our fast turnaround time, from order to delivery, in under 8 weeks, is one of many key reasons we are receiving orders.”
The new plant boasts high end presses, CNC machining capabilities, laser cutters, laser welders and other precision machinery. The plant operates to the high AS9100 Aerospace quality standards. TRIODETIC shares the Plaintree resources of approximately 100 employees including professional engineers, CAD Technicians, certified welders and support staff.For more information on this company, please refer to Plaintree’s 2011 annual financial statements together with the related Management’s Discussion and Analysis report, copies of which can be obtained from the Company’s website at www.plaintree.com and/or under Plaintree’s name at www.sedar.com.
