The acquisition of the assets led to the creation of a new company, Norseman Structures Inc. (NSI). According to a release posted on the Cover-All website, operations were expected to resume at the former Cover-All Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, plant. In the interim, the current Norseman Structures product line is available through its existing operations in Edmonton, Alberta.
"The ownership and management of Norseman Group are excited to be part of the Saskatoon community, and we are looking forward to working with the outstanding team at Cover-All," said Ron Bryant, president of Norseman Group.
With the acquisition of Cover-All assets, Norseman Structures Inc. will have the broadest product line, and one of the most extensive distribution networks for pre-engineered membrane structures in North America.
Cover-All Building Systems Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection in March and most of its nearly 500 employees were laid off. More on Norseman is available at www.norseman.ca.
