About Shannon Steel

Celebrating 50 years in the structural steel industry in 2014!

Nicolaas H. Schaafsma, Founder of Shannon Steel Inc.

Shannon Steel Est. 1964

Shannon Steel came into being in October of 1964, the sole ownership of Nicolaas H. Schaafsma and was incorporated in 1968.

It operated from a small workshop in the village of Caledon, fabricating miscellaneous items and bridge railings for the Department of Highways. Shannon Steel was given a “year supply contract” with this department for two years. Gradually Shannon Steel started to get involved in small buildings, specializing in service stations for a variety of Oil Companies. Approximately 10 to 15 of the first McDonald’s restaurants were fabricated and erected by Shannon Steel, when the “Golden Arches” moved into Canada.

In 1976 the operation was moved from Caledon to Orangeville into a new plant and office building. By that time the company had established itself solidly in the building industry as a fabricator and erector of structural steel and open web steel joist.

In early 2004 the president, Nicolaas Schaafsma retired and his son Mark Schaafsma took over company management.
