Local 842 Builds Stacker Reclaimer

Local 842 (Saint John, New Brunswick) partners up with MQM Quality Manufacturing, a leader in New Brunswick's steel structure fabrication and installation industry, to erect and assemble this impressive stacker reclaimer in Belledune, New Brunswick.

A skilled, productive and safe ironworker crew consisting of a dayshift and nightshift delivered the project on time. The giant stacker reclaimer took four months to complete during the winter of 2012 and 2013.

Weighing 1,360 tons, the stacker reclaimer was loaded on a barge, and over a period of 24 hours, transported to its new home in Port Cartier, Quebec. MQM Quality Manufacturing Ltd.'s management were very pleased with the performance of Local 842 and value their ongoing relationship.
