Construction of the Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, terminal began in late February, and continues with the start of operations scheduled for late summer 2017. Formerly used for industrial port operations, the Osha- wa site is already equipped with domes, two of which are currently being refurbished to include a cement un- loading system for arriving vessels, and a truck loading station being constructed nearby. The two domes will provide a storage capacity of 14,000 metric tons of cement and the terminal will accommodate up to 60 trucks per day for loading and delivery to McInnis cus- tomers. The Oshawa terminal will be served primarily by the NACC Quebec, the vessel chartered by McInnis for distribution through the St. Lawrence Seaway. Work is also underway at the company's New York ter- minal. The site in the South Bronx is part of McInnis' network of terminals strategically located throughout the eastern portion of North America and chosen for their access to efficient waterways as well as their McInnis Cement Distribution Network Continues to Bloom 98 years of reliable experience "TIREX"- Receiver from trucks and feeder for several bulk materials Bucket elevators Gambarotta Gschwendt. bulk solid mechanical
