Though the Westeel logo has popped up on a tank or two so far this is the first set of noticable Westeel products since Northern Steel Industrials was taken over by the Winnipeg tank manufacturer. To the casual drive by observer there have been some modest changes to the plants including extensive fencing around the former Fripp plant and the main building sports a nice uniform paint job. The main think is that production continues.
In the industry Westeel holds the patient to the "Fuel Vault" product and so when it is producted here in Tisdale at the Northern Steel Industries plant it is labelled with the Westeel brand. Similarily if they produced some the products established in the market place by Northern Steel they will carry the Northern Steel Industries logo even if produced in Winnipeg.
