Why Metal Fabrication is An Essential Business during COVID-19

April 26, 2021

Following the Guidance on Essential Services and Functions in Canada, metal fabrication has been deemed an essential business due to its impact on “the health, safety, security, or economic well-being of Canadians and the effective functioning of government.”


From food to health to telecommunications, metal fabrication provides much-needed support to other critical infrastructure sectors in Canada.


Today, learn how metal fabrication supports some of the essential sectors of our country during this pandemic.  



Cleanliness is vital in all food manufacturing processes. For this reason, stainless steel is the number one choice for components involved in cleaning-in-place (CIP) and cleaning-out-of-place (COP) procedures.


Stainless steel has a sanitary finish that does not promote bacteria growth and is durable enough to withstand contact with corrosive substances.


Stainless steel products can be in the form of tanks, conveyors, bottling equipment, and more.  Replacements for any of these components should be carefully fabricated to meet food standards.



Under the health sector, pharmaceutical companies are responsible for discovering, developing, and producing drugs to cure or alleviate symptoms that patients face. During the pandemic, they are more important than ever and we are relying on the healthcare industry to supply us with vital equipment. Like food manufacturers, they heavily rely on stainless steel products that are proven to be safe and suitable for their applications, especially in the production line.


Information and Communication Technologies

Telecom companies use durable and high-quality parts to provide reliable telephone and internet services to subscribers. Metal parts such as enclosures, terminal boxes, chassis, and metal panels have to go through different processes such as cutting and machining until the desired quality is achieved. Any damage sustained by these parts could hamper communications or cause intermittent delays when transferring data. As such, metal fabricators have to be on call all the time to make sure they can provide services for telecommunications infrastructure any time the need arises.


Indeed, metal fabrication is vital to the daily operations of other essential sectors to protect the welfare of the people and keep the economy growing. Baseline Custom Fabricating continues to operate while strictly following health and safety protocols to protect our clients. Call us for any of your fabrication and cutting needs.
