Description:
During the Second World War, urban centers and industrial centers in central Canada, such as Hamilton, began production of materials to meet the needs of the navy and merchant marine. Some Hamilton companies that acquired naval contracts required the installation of specialized facilities and increased numbers of workers. On the industrial side, this implementation involved the use of tolerance plates for shipbuilding. Manufacture and installation of electrical machinery and components on board ships, provision of equipment to minesweepers, manufacture of steel barges and manufacture of various naval articles is how Hamilton was able to do its part for the war at sea.
