A second extrusion operation was opened in Calgary, Alberta to service the growing Western Canadian market. The acquisition of a larger and more capable six-inch press in Calgary combined with the installation of a new paint line allowed for the consolidation of operations into the Calgary facility, resulting in the closure of the Winnipeg operation in 1990.
