Pipe Fabrication Shop

Our 11,000 square foot facility has the ability to handle pipe & tube up to 36" diameter in all schedules. As a result of our vision for continued growth, we are planning a significant shop floor expansion in the near future.
For pipe fabrication delivered to external customers, shop personnel follow detailed quality control procedures specific to the customer's needs. On time delivery is critical and our team understands how important it is to our customers. We provide quick turnaround and responsiveness while always focusing on safety and quality.
Our controlled work environment provides efficient production, quality assurance/quality control and safety. Whether it's a small commercial fabrication project or a large industrial ASME code welding project, our shop fabricates to our customers' specific needs. All welds are completed per ASME weld procedures.
Our highly trained welders work with carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and specialty alloys to name a few.
To support our internal field installation projects, our Preconstruction Department assists project managers to plan each project's specific needs. This detailed planning process yields increased efficiency and quality. The team determines what piping to fabricate in the shop versus the field. After shop fabrication, piping components are delivered to the job site to be assembled and installed.
