Heddle Marine Service Inc., has operated shipyards in Canada for over 30 years while Seaspan is a leader in shipbuilding and ship repair on Canada’s West Coast.

Ford said: “This agreement of component fabrication will lead to the manufacturing of millions of dollars worth of Ontario Made ship components and more jobs in Hamilton, St. Catharines and Thunder Bay.

“We will always work to ensure that our shipbuilding sector remains healthy, sustainable, & competitive for decades to come.” Ford is pictured here speaking with one of the work crew at the yard.
