McLennan Engineering Works Ltd. was once the main industry of Campbellton.
It was started in 1888 by Duncan and McLennan Co. and business increased until 1908
when the partnership of Duncan and McLennan was dissolved.
The business was now McLennan's and was re-named McLennan Foundry and Machine Works Ltd.
William Duncan started a Machine shop and Foundry of his own which was first destroyed
by the great Campbellton fire on July 11, 1910. He rebuilt only to be burnt down again
and this time he did not rebuild.
Meanwhile at the McLennan foundry
With the commencement of the first world war, the firm was given a contract
for the manufacturing of shells. They also started the construction of four masted
schooners. But the war ended before they were completed and only one ship was completed.
That ship was named in honor of McLennan's son who was killed overseas, February 20/1918, "Harry A. Mclennan".
The building of the ship was expensive but the firm got through the depression.
With the beginning of the second world war, the company received another contract
again for manufacturing shells. This proved to be profitable for the firm
and it allowed them to hire a large number of men.
In Feb. of 1946, a large part of the plant was destroyed by fire.
The business was rebuilt and reorganised under the name of McLennan Engineering Works Ltd.
