Lakeside Adding Thermal Processing to Ontario Facility
Lakeside currently ships its tubing products to an outside processor for upsetting and normalizing before those products can be threaded, coupled and shipped to customers. The addition of the new processing capability, in conjunction with Lakeside's recently added upsetting and threading equipment, allow it to keep the entire operation in-house. Lakeside will test production to ensure it meets the American Petroleum Institute's (API) strict specifications. Initially, the Welland operation will process 2.375-inch and 2.875-inch tubing.
