After nearly six years in Salmon Arm, ADAM Integrated celebrated its expansion into new premises in Salmon Arm’s industrial park.

The company, which does custom metal fabrication from design to installation, has taken over space formerly occupied by the Soleno Pipe plant and Doepker Trucking.

Now employing 43 people, the family-run business specializes in precision metal works using a high-power water jet cutter or a laser cutter to take on a variety of jobs.

“We do everything from truck parts to components for multi-million dollar homes,” says company president Colin McMaster.

Some notable projects include a metal staircase valued at more than $100,000 for a high-end home in Colorado and creating the steel connectors for a timber-frame music hall. Closer to home, residents may be familiar with their work in the metal salmon which adorn the donor wall at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.
