JOHNSTOWN – Building on its shipping base, the Port of Johnstown announced over the weekend it will be taking on new specialized steel shipments in the coming year.

General Manager Robert Dalley shared the news about the construction steel as more than 1,000 people attended the second annual Port Day community open house on Saturday.

“This is a new cargo for us and it will be delivered by ship to our revamped Harbour Front dock. Last year, the port also spent $2.2 million on more grain storage and automating equipment in the grain elevator,” Dalley said.

There are also plans for long-term storage for Ingredion of Cardinal – one of the main users of the port’s new grain bins.

During the open house, people got to see the Canadian Coast Guard Ship Corporal Teather C.V. and the HMCS Goose Bay.
