Experts in Advanced Materials Design and Manufacturing
At CMSI (CMS Infrastructure), we are experts in advanced materials design and manufacturing.
As a design and manufacturing company, we’ve been working in FRP composites for 7 years. From our earliest iterations, to our newest InfraCore Inside Technology, and the HCB( Hillman Composite Beam), we’re fast becoming the leader in Canada in advanced material change. Through FiberCore Europe, CMSI (CMS Infrastructure) is a part of a consortium of licensed partnerships, from around the world. From aeronautical, to civil engineers, we collaborate to find solutions for the most complex projects. From lock gates to ship hulls. Potash infrastructure to helidecks, we embrace each challenge with proven technology, and patented designs. In addition to our bridge manufacturing services, we also offer a variety of manufacturing-related consulting and engineering services. We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality products and services possible.

CMSI Manufacturing of a Composite Ship Camel
CMSI provided design, engineering, and manufacturing, for this project addressing the specifications, and performance expectations of our client. These are single infusions, and VARTM process, weighing up to 8,000 lbs when complete. Each panel assembly can have up 800 individual parts including 196 individual stainless-steel plates. The stainless-steel plates are carefully drilled and tapped after infusion to provide the bolting features we need for mounting other external components in the final assembly. The final assembled product will use 196 panels of various sizes to complete two 235, 000 lb structures
CMSI-Advancing Material Change.
One of our large single infusions using the VARTM process. This represents one of 196 components in a Navy Camel assembly.
-Dimensions - 55’7” x 11’8” x 6” thickness
-Weight – 10,100 lbs.
What is Hillman Composite Beam?
John Hillman explains how the HCB is built with different building materials, resulting in a cost effective composite beam designed to be stronger, lighter, and more corrosion resistant compared to traditional concrete materials.
Benefits of Hillman Composite Beam Technology
What are the benefits of Hillman Composite Beam and how does it differ from traditional materials?
Engineering Behind The Hillman Composite Beam
The engineering behind the Hillman Composite Beam (HCB) was developed to solve common problems with conventional materials.
Just how strong is the Hillman Composite Beam? We put it to the test to know how much load-bearing capacity an HCB beam could take to compare it with traditional concrete beams used for bridge manufacturing. This video showcases the advanced manufacturing capabilities of our composite bridge products.
How does a Hillman Composite Beam compare to a Concrete Beam? compare to a Concrete Beam?
How does Hillman Composite Beam (HCB) bridge engineering compare to traditional materials when building a bridge? Here are the answers to our most commonly asked questions.
What are the standard sections of a Hillman Composite Beam?
Hillman Composite Beams are used in a variety of structural bridge design projects. In this video, you will learn about the standard sections of a Hillman Composite Beam and how they can be customized for your specific project requirements.
Bridges Manufactured with Hillman Composite Beams (HCB)
Hillman Composite Beam has been used in bridges across North America for pedestrian and traffic bridges, railway bridges, and even piers that survived a category 4 hurricane on the oceanfront in Maine.
Hillman Composite Beam Construction Sequence
Hillman Composite Beam (HCB) offers a unique solution for bridge construction, ensuring structures are both super-durable and light in weight yet remarkably strong.
Through this video, John Hillman explains the innovative process that transforms HCB into bridges capable of incredible load-bearing capability - far beyond traditional designs!

Hillman Composite Beam - Superior Advancements in Bridge Technology
We know the limitations of traditional materials. We've partnered with HCB which combines the durability of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites with the low-cost and functional advantages of concrete and steel. The result is a cost-competitive, resilient bridge system benefitting from the extended service life inherent in composite materials.
