Carol Lake Metal Works was first founded in 2007 with one employee, Stephen Hawco (owner), providing mobile welding services. After a successful year, a building was rented in the Wabush Industrial Park in 2008.


In 2009, 220 Humphrey Road was purchased which included a small building.


In 2010, the first section of the welding shop was built at 8000 sqft with a 55 ton over head crane.


In 2011 it was time to expand; this was done by the purchasing of new fabrication equipment to provide more services to customers.


In 2012, a new welding truck was purchased to expand mobile work capabilities.


2013 brought the first expansion to Carol Lake Metal Works’ building. The building expansion includes an additional 6000sqft of space with a machine shop equipped with a 10 ton over head crane, and a new office area. Once the expansion was finished, the largest press brake in the area was purchased (1100 ton) for bending Hardox.


From 2014 – 2017, the team at Carol Lake Metal Works continued to build the company, taking on various projects and new learning experiences. As the company grew more, it was deemed necessary to expand the building once again.


In 2018, the second addition to the welding shop was built (5000sqft) and the overhead crane was upgraded to a 64 ton crane. A new CNC Plasma Table was purchased allowing CLMW to expand its cutting capabilities, and speed up the cutting process. 2018 being a big year, Carol Lake Metal Works was introduced to Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters. This introduction brought a new way of thinking to the company, and the journey to a lean workplace began. To top off the successful year, Carol Lake Metal Works also became the first Hardox Wear Parts Center in Newfoundland and Labrador.


So far in 2019, Carol Lake Metal Works is focusing on strategic and lean thinking, continuing our journey to a lean workplace, and will continue to build the business and brand.
