The BP-Husky Refining facility (formerly known as the BP Toledo Refinery) located in Northwest Ohio, has operated continuously since 1919. Since that time, the facility has undergone numerous improvements to achieve its current capacity for processing 160,000 barrels of crude oil daily. Access to a wide variety of crude oil sources, capability to process Canadian heavy sour crude, and proximity to the Ohio and Michigan fuels market make the refinery one of the most structurally advantaged refineries in BP's portfolio.

Recently, BP and Husky Energy finalized the formation of two 50/50 joint ventures. One joint venture will develop Husky's Sunrise oil sands field located in Alberta, Canada, and the other joint venture will operate and reposition the Toledo Refinery located in Ohio. As a result, the refinery will have access to a reliable source of North American crude oil and ensure the refinery's future for years to come.

The Heavy Craft classification includes typical refinery pipefitter and boilermaker activities for fixed equipment. The Heavy Craft Mechanicwill perform all the duties necessary for safe and efficient operation under the supervision of a Maintenance Supervisor. The Heavy Craft Code Welder classification is an advanced role to be filled and is a subset of the Heavy Craft Shop. This role performs code welding on equipment, such as pressure piping and pressure vessels, in addition to the core Heavy Craft activities.

The Heavy Craft Mechanic may perform a variety of work assignments on both regular shift, off-shift or on overtime, based on the skills he/she acquires within Maintenance.Accountabilities Include:
