Triad Metals, one of the Port of Oshawa’s newest customers is already making its mark. The company is gearing up to hire new workers, and is currently in the race to bring the first international vessel into the port, kicking off this year’s shipping season.

Triad Metals, a wholesale distributor of structural steel products in the U.S, is building its first Canadian warehousing operation on Farewell Avenue. The company will be hiring up to 30 people, with positions ranging from administration to warehousing and sales.

"Our new facility at the port, will also have a significant spinoff effect," said Jeff Hroncich, Vice-President of Sales Canada for Triad. "It’s creating more work for cargo crews at the port, as well as trucking companies and distributors."

The Port of Oshawa’s new $2.5 million cargo pad on the east port lands is also boosting work hours for skilled crews. The pad, which was only recently completed, has already resulted in a long-term agreement with a new bulk customer, which is constructing a 15-thousand metric tonne building on the site.

"We’re delighted that our investment in port expansion is paying off in a major way," said Donna Taylor, President and CEO of the Oshawa Port Authority. "The economic benefits are significant for Oshawa and the entire region, and we’re confident there will be many more new bulk customers."

As the 2015 navigation season gets underway, a Spanish vessel is on route to the Port of Oshawa, carrying wide flange beams for Triad that will be used in building construction. It is one of many contenders for the coveted Top Hat, as the first international vessel into the port this year.

Honours are also set to go to McAsphalt Industries Limited, with the arrival of "Victorious/John J. Carrick," the first barge of the navigation season. McAsphalt is one of the Port of Oshawa’s original port customers.

"The Port of Oshawa is off to a spectacular start this season," said Gary Valcour, Chair of the Oshawa Port Authority. "We’re proud of our role in creating new jobs and opportunities for our community."  Visit: www.portofoshawa.ca.
