Our Contributions to the Film and Television Industry
Our Contributions to the Film and Television Industry
March 15, 2019

As a company that specializes in custom metal fabrication in Toronto, we have manufactured products that serve a number of industries, including the film industry. A professional film set with a relatively large production budget will seek assistance from businesses that are known for their high-quality services.

 

We have had decades of experience in taking on difficult and demanding projects, and succeeding.

 

Our proven expertise and skill has made us a go-to metal fabrication company for film productions in Toronto. Below are just a couple of our experiences in producing recognizable set pieces for high-profile films.   

 

The Suicide Squad Elevator

In 2015, Demtra was approached by Warner Bros. Pictures to create set pieces for Suicide Squad. Our expertise in custom metal fabrication in Toronto brought us the opportunity to create multiple set pieces for this film, the most notable of which was the elevator featured in an action-packed scene. While we have produced set pieces for many films, we were proud and honored to be involved in the production of Suicide Squad.

 

Check out this press release from Motion Picture Association – Canada about how the production of Suicide Squad boosted Ontario’s economy in 2015, and created jobs for many local businesses—including yours truly! Demtra’s president, Steve Howes, was also featured in a behind-the-scenes video produced by MPA-Canada.

 

Magneto’s Machine in the First X-Men Film

Toronto is a hotspot for filming projects, as it provides idyllic urban scenery and could pass for many of the major cities in the US. The United Nations scene in the first X-Men film was shot in Toronto, and while on location the production contacted us as their chosen company for custom metal fabrication in Toronto to create Magneto’s infamous machine. This was a more unusual piece to create, but we were up for the challenge!   

 

We have been trusted with complex, high-profile projects such as these because of the reputation we have built as metal fabrication company dedicated to producing fully customized pieces. We perform all aspects of fabrication in shop, including cutting, shearing, welding, assembly and painting. We are also able to manufacture our pieces using a range of materials, including stainless steel, brass, aluminum, copper and alloys. Our efficiency, versatility and eagerness to take on projects of any size and level of complexity make us stand out among our competition. We hope to continue contributing our skills and expertise to the film and television industry in Ontario.

 

At Demtra Sheet Metal Industries, we specialize in custom sheet metal fabrication, stainless steel fabrication, welding and repairs. We are a leader in custom metal fabrication in Toronto because of our state-of-the-art equipment and highly skilled staff. Contact us today for quality metal fabrication services!
