TERREBONNE, QC, Oct. 14, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - ADF GROUP INC. ("ADF" or the "Corporation") (TSX: DRX) announces the award of new orders totalling $40 million in Canada and the United States.
The largest of these contracts includes the fabrication, the shop drawings, the supply of raw material (steel) and the delivery of the steel structure of a commercial building, as part of a major real estate project in New York City. The other contracts involve the fabrication of steel structures for industrial buildings for different projects in Northeastern U.S.A, West of the Great Lakes and in the Province of Quebec. Work will be carried out at both of ADF's fabrication plants in Terrebonne, Quebec and in Great Falls, Montana.
