Connecting communities. All ways.

Algonquin Bridge designs and supplies a wide range of steel bridge products and crossing solutions across Canada and beyond.

And beyond communities, they are also connecting mine sites, woodland trails, railways and even Canada’s far North. Wherever they are, you can be sure that the connection has been made with Algonquin’s efficiency and quality built into every bridge. Because we’re not just building bridges, we’re building relationships.

Our new Ontario manufacturing plant

Able to produce a 250-ft continuous structure, our new Thorndale, Ontario, plant (off Highway 401, near London) opened in 2017. It has been carefully planned for maximum end-to-end, flow-though efficiency with two 25-ton overhead cranes and several cellular workstations. Two floors of adjoining office space are home to our executive, sales, engineering and production management teams. The facility is situated on a large site with plenty of room for future expansion.

Our commitment to sustainable solutions

The AIL Group has identified environmental stewardship and commitment to sustainability as part of our strategic plan and our vision for the future. As we have in the past, we will continue to actively examine strategies to advance that vision and our commitment to leadership for our industry.
