HEAVY FABRICATION

The Heavy Fabrication Department supports metal fabrication projects in material thicknesses of ¼” and greater and individual component weights in excess of 20 tons. This is accomplished in a variety of material types and to various industry fabrication standards. Our personnel possess the core skills to accomplish both routine fabrication as well as complex weldments requiring post-machining and critical non-destructive examination.
