Lunenburg Foundry circa 1950's
Lunenburg Industrial Foundry & Engineering has been providing a wide variety of high quality products since its establishment in 1891. From its location on two waterfront sites in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, the company has serviced both local needs and world wide markets.
Lunenburg Foundry's craftsmen have offered a long heritage of excellent service to the marine & industrial sectors and continue to serve these markets with both conventional and innovative new products.
The company was an early pioneer in the development of a marine internal combustion engine and continues to manufacture many products for the marine industry. In 1921, Lunenburg Foundry was the first in Canada to install a diesel engine in a fishing schooner. The company is heavily involved in ship repair such as refits, conversions and outfitting.
Throughout most of the 20th century, the company was also widely known as a major manufacturer of commercial and residential heating equipment, including wood stoves and furnaces. Many well known brands of wood stoves, such a Peacock, Cinderella and Lady Scotia, were produced at Lunenburg Foundry. Although production was discontinued in the 1980's, this continues to be a major legacy for the company.
Today Lunenburg Foundry designs and manufactures a full line of marine & industrial equipment and offers a wide range of services to these industries, including distribution of products by well known manufacturers such as ISUZU and Ford. The company's Marine Products are engineered and built to withstand the rigours of the North Atlantic.
