Manual Welding
Taking pride in every bead
Our multiple welding cells are very flexible. We’re able to MIG (Metal Inert Gas ) or TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) weld mild steel, stainless, or aluminum in a wide range of thicknesses. We have upwards of 20 welding stations that can be positioned to the most effective process depending on the jobs going through the shop. A lot of our building columns have jib cranes to help various stations along the length of the bay. We also have 5 overhead cranes for any extremely large and heavy projects spanning the full length of our welding, cleaning and shipping area.

We continually reinvest in our employees and the tools they need to do their best job. Many of our welders are certified. We also have the ability to train and certify new weld hires in-house. Another step in the process that isn’t required by most companies, but we take pride in our employees’ work and what we sell to our customers.

With the correct process and material, powder coated parts can be very resistant to corrosion, heat, impact, abrasion, fading from sunlight and extreme weather.
