Industries and manufacturing are essential to the health, nutrition and daily needs of communities and urban centres. The products we buy every day in grocery, department and hardware stores all come from these industries. Today, more than ever, we need strong local industries to reduce our dependence on international trade, and face challenges associated with the energy transition, labour shortage, and difficulty procuring materials or raw materials.
Integrated services for your industry
Plant operators face many challenges. Labour shortages are compelling them to automate their production lines and integrate new technology. They need to choose the right equipment for their needs, and make sure they get a solid return on their investment.
The cost of energy and the incentives to decarbonize is prompting industries to turn to renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power. At the same time, climate change requires them to implement loss recovery measures, such as heating their buildings with the heat generated by their heavy equipment.
Since every minute of downtime represents lost production, ingenuity is the key to getting as much done as possible in scheduled timeframes for retrofits and maintenance projects.
Dealing with current complexities in securing procurement requires closer collaboration with suppliers.
Lastly, the sound management of assets and risks is a must, in order to extend the life of production equipment until it is no longer profitable. Every plant needs a good asset maintenance and replacement plan, i.e. one that is as cost-effective as efficient. Improvements and capacity increases must be carried out within existing facilities, often generating significant competitive advantages.
At CIMA+, we provide integrated services (mechanical, electrical, structural, and civil engineering solutions) for battery manufacturing and recycling, wood processing, cement plant optimization, food processing, chemical manufacturing, and other manufacturing plants.
- A one-stop-shop for every discipline (conventional and niche) and all services.
- A pool of qualified and agile resources to manage and deliver projects, small to large.
- One firm and one contact to handle all services.
- We deliver what our clients need most:
- Fast response times | We offer remote and on-site emergency assistance.
- Cost-effective solutions | Our designs are simple, cost-effective, and adapted to the requirements of daily operations.
- Proactive approach | We provide you with actionable solutions tailored to your specific needs.
We understand that production interruptions caused by a new design can quickly affect your project's capital costs and anticipated profits. That's why our teams consider your operational needs, the constructability of their designs, potential operational conflicts during the rollout, and the impact of commissioning on the site.
Our proven experience in maintenance, operations and reliability is based largely based on our significant track record of projects directly delivered on the site. With our integrated teams on site, we can easily manage the progress of your projects based on your investments and site constraints.
CIMA+ can handle all or part of your project:
- Feasibility and constructability studies
- Preliminary and detailed engineering
- Construction management
- Contractor selection
- Site supervision
- Pre-operational verification (POV)
- Staff training
- Project management

Discover our industry and manufacturing projects
Our teams have successfully completed hundreds of large-scale engineering projects.
The new production line uses nearly 120 electric motors operating with energy-recovery frequency converters. These frequency converters generate and store energy when they stop moving load during a stop-start...
The wall and most of its components had lost their structural integrity. The extent of the deterioration and the congested state of the affected area made it impossible to...
CIMA+ performed the engineering of major mechanical and piping components as part of the building design, which had to meet all environmental standards and Code requirements while minimizing the...
CIMA+ helped Suncor organize this major operation by providing the front-end engineering design and the detailed engineering required to decommission and relocate water supply and water return systems and...
In just a few months, CIMA+ inspected all 52,300 m² of roofing at the complex, the equivalent of 10 American football fields. There were no “as built” drawings for many...
The diesel generators supplying power to the site produce a large amount of heat. Previously released in the environment, this heat is now “pumped” into pipes insulated with glycol,...
An innovative design to debottleneck a mill circuit and help a plant achieve its boilerplate tonnage
A high percentage of fines were regularly observed in the ore fed to the grinding circuit. Already at the desired size, these particles simply clogged up the circuit.
CIMA+ contributed to the design of a 450-ton silo and its pneumatic conveying system. The project also included:A truck scale under the silo The foundations under the structure...
The client needed to complete the project within a tight timeframe at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to its extensive expertise in 3D modelling, CIMA+ provided the...
