Mining Truck Maintenance and Assembly Facility

Labrador City, Labrador is located 53 degrees north of the equator and some 930 miles north of Rubb, Inc’s factory in Sanford, Maine. With a harsh climate and average snowfall of 12 feet (366 cm), Labrador is home to some of the worst weather in North America.

Rubb, Inc. was contacted by Marshall Industries, a mining support contractor based in Ontario, who needed a flexible structure for a truck maintenance and assembly facility. The types of vehicles to be housed in the structure are very large mining dump trucks and, because of their sheer size, the building had to meet very specific design criteria including high sidewalls, a large service door, and the ability to move.
