Omnithruster Establishes New Manufacturing Facility In Canada —Literature Available

Omnithruster Inc. has recently established a Canadian manufacturing facility in Sarnia, Ontario. The new Mark II Omnithruster series and Omnithruster ice lubrication systems will be fabricated at that plant.

Omnithruster president Charles M. Aker said: "The equipment is to be produced from Canadian raw materials and with Canadian labor. The only components to be furnished from our plant in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., are the control systems. These will be installed during the final assembly and the complete system will be tested prior to shipment from the Sarnia facility." Omnithruster manufactures a complete line of hydrojet maneuvering, propulsion, and ice management systems ranging from 50 to 3,000 horsepower in single units. Systems are installed in ships worldwide, including tankers operated by Shell Canada, Imperial Oil, and Exxon; in barges operated by Chevron Canada and A.B. McLean; in Gulf Canada icebreakers; and in geophysical vessels, fishing boats, etc.

Omnithruster-Canada will coordinate its manufacturing, installation, and repair activities through commercial offices located in Sarnia as well as in Montreal and Vancouver.
