February 1, 2014 – To meet the increase in sales predicted in 2014, BCI Rubber is investing $500 K for the design and custom manufacturing of a 1,500-ton press, currently one of the largest in Canada. This investment has allowed the company’s large part production capacity to quadruple. The press allows us to mould parts up to 11 ft. long, with a maximum weight of 600 kg.
BCI is now equipped to face the competition and to offer more competitive services and products to the North American mining industry. As a first-line supplier for the big mining corporations in northern Quebec and Ontario, BCI intends to continue developing its Flexarmor® wear products.
