What Services do we offer?

We specialize in Industrial Fabrication, Commerical welding and Fabrication, Structural steel fabrication and erection, Architectural metals, ornamental iron, and 5 axis waterjet Cutting.

We work with all materials, even wood, plastic, rubber, and glass if the job calls for it.

How it works

We are not like most shops, we are flexible to work with.

You can bring us a mechanical drawing, plan sets, sketches, or even a drawing on a bar napkin.  Don't have a drawing?  No problem! We can make them for you, or we can design something together.

We draw in AutoCad and Solidworks and can help turn designs into a working drawing, then bring them to life,

For some jobs, working shop drawings are provided to ensure dimensions and design intent are properly conveyed.  We do 99% of all shop drawings in house.

Give us a call, email, or stop by during business hours to go over your project.
