Structural Truss Systems Expanding in Fort Macleod

General News

Structural Truss Systems and Forma Steel are excited to announce a significant expansion within their companies. Preparations have begun on a new large-scale truss manufacturing and metal fabrication facility in Fort Macleod, Alberta. This development signifies a historic milestone in the companies’ 40-year history and marks a significant leap forward for this small southern Alberta town and economic region.

The new combined manufacturing and shipping facility, being constructed by Westco Construction, is expected to double production capabilities and office space as well as expand logistics capacity. There will be 90,000 square feet of production space for both operations along with 25,000 square feet of office space. This increased space will help to provide a better working environment for their over 200 team members, with room for future growth.

The Government of Alberta’s support through the Investment Growth Fund (IGF) is a big boost for doing business in a small rural Alberta community. This investment will help create roughly 50% more available jobs within these companies for local Albertans and help to accommodate their ever-increasing market demands.

“I am pleased that Structural Truss is choosing to expand their operations in Fort Macleod. This investment will help bring even more jobs to the region, grow the local economy and support Alberta’s economic prosperity. Thanks to Alberta’s business-friendly policies and programs like the Investment and Growth Fund, companies can feel confident about investing in Alberta.” – Matt Jones, Minister of Jobs, Economy and Trade

“Since our early beginnings in the 1980s, it has been incredibly rewarding and exciting to see our operations’ growth alongside the growth of Fort Macleod.” – Brent Feyter, CEO of Structural Truss Systems and Forma Steel

These second-generation family-owned businesses credit their success to the hard work and dedication of all their current and past employees as well as the continued support from loyal customers. With deep roots in Fort Macleod, they believe in the opportunity businesses have to make positive impacts within their local communities, and they plan to do just that.

With construction underway, completion of the new facility is anticipated in early 2026. While Structural Truss Systems and Forma Steel await the day they can open their doors, they look forward to the impact this new facility will have on their companies, the Town of Fort Macleod, and Alberta as a whole.
