InfraCore, leader in robust load bearing FRP structures for the infrastructure market, and CMSI, a company equipping Canada to meet infrastructure challenges in an environmentally sustainable manner, have signed a license agreement which brings fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) composite bridges, made using the patented InfraCore technology, to Canadian market.

InfraCore’s InfraCore technology is patented worldwide and used in many countries. Under the agreement, CMSI will design, manufacture and install permanent traffic, pedestrian and golf bridge solutions to federal, provincial and municipal parks and private road infrastructure projects across Canada. In addition to the permanent infrastructure, a new modular FRP/steel hybrid temporary bridge will offer an innovative solution to a wide range of industrial sectors, including utilities, oil and gas, forestry, military and emergency response in Canada and around the world.

The bridges are designed and manufactured featuring InfraCore technology and will provide public and private infrastructure projects a sustainable option to conventional products. The InfraCore technology will take environmental sustainability to a new level in infrastructure projects, providing governments and companies the ability to reduce GHG’s and meet sustainability targets.

CMSI’s leading-edge manufacturing process will broaden Alberta’s advanced manufacturing ecosystem and contribute to the development and implementation of innovative technology and automation to the Canadian economy. CMSI expects to add up to 30 full time positions in Alberta during the first year of the agreement.

InfraCore founder/CEO Simon De Jong said: “It is a real honour to know that our high tech InfraCore technology is now represented in Canada by this great company CMSI. This strong Canadian company convinced us already with the development of InfraCore matting systems. I am sure they will be successful with InfraCore bridges in Canada.”
