About Us

r-d-logo-goldR & D Welding and Mechanical Contractor Ltd. has been proudly offering quality workmanship since 1977.  We started out supplying welding services and fabricating miscellaneous metals on various constructions sites and local mines.  Then we were asked to make buckets, big and small, and got into manufacturing. Now our prime business is heavy equipment.  We’re a family-run business that now employs 12 experienced professionals, at times up to 25 people when necessary for the job at hand.  We pride ourselves on the excellent work performed by our skilled employees.

Our business has expanded over the 37 years we have been in operation from a one-bay shop to a busy three-bay shop.  We have also since erected a separate building for painting.

Within our three-bay shops are several pieces of powerful equipment necessary for the production of our products:  

Creaform REVscan: One of the few in Atlantic Canada, it’s a handheld self-positioning 3D laser scanner system for reverse-engineering products.

Plate Rolls - Another only one of its kind  in the region, a 1.25” X 120” capacity machine used for rolling steel.

HPR 400 XD Cutting table –  400 Amp high definition plasma cutting table with a zoned down draft and bed size of 8’ X 24’.  It has the capacity to cut aluminum and stainless steel with a production pierce of 1 ¾”, and carbon steel cut with a production pierce of 2”. The table also has one Ox Fuel cutting torch for thicker material, is controlled by the Edgepro interface and Pronest nesting software with true hole technology.  It has a manual beveling system with arc writing function on all materials.

Lathes - We have three lathes with digital readouts for accurate, precise machining.

Milling Machine - We have one milling machine with a digital readout.

Welding Machines - We have numerous welding machines:  stick, wire feed, mig and flux, and metal core.  We can also weld aluminum and stainless steel.
