Canatal Steel USA to expand in Botetourt County
Canatal Steel USA, a subsidiary of Canada-based Canatal Industries, plans to expand its steel fabrication operations in Botetourt County.
The $1.5 million project is expected to create 38 jobs.
Ralph Poulin founded Canada-based Canatal Industries in 1990. After landing several major contracts in the Northeast and expanding in Canada, the company opened its first U.S. plant, Canatal Steel USA, in Botetourt County in 2010. The plant allowed the company to expansion along the Eastern Seaboard.
Today, Canatal Steel USA has more than 80 employees.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Botetourt County and the Roanoke Regional Partnership to secure the project, and will support Canatal’s new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP).
