Machine tools, 1939-1945.

Before World War II even started, the company decided that it would not manufacture shells. Instead, the knowledge and experience of the Bertram Company and employees allowed them to manufacture the machine tools needed to support highly mechanized warfare.

During World War II, Bertram machine tools for war production were shipped throughout Canada and to England and Russia.

During World War II, the Bertram Works also produced 6” diameter x 72’ bar couplings, boring heads, and reamers for Tribal Class Destroyers.
