Co. following the sale of their rental assets and related operations to the Fluid Solutions Group of industry leader United Rentals.

A high-profile infrastructure project of the Eastern Canada Refinery Access Initiative has proven to be a safe fit for the large-scale application of trench boxes.

The project received National Energy Board approval in March of this year.
