Business History

We are a locally owned business that traces its history back to 1974 when the   company was founded by James T. Carter. We began operating as a welding repair business, with four trucks servicing area contractors, utilities, and scrap yards. We purchased the property at our current site and incorporated in 1991. Our business has expanded substantially with floor space tripling and service offerings expanded to include the full range of Weld services; fabricate and/or repair Steel, Cast, Aluminum, Stainless structures (in-house or on-site); also welding of small-lot, piece part and assembly Weldments for other area Fabricators. We will work with our customers from the beginning of the product development cycle, adding value wherever we can. Throughout our growth, we have maintained our focus on developing and strengthening customer relationships. There is no better form of advertisement than word of mouthreferrals by a satisfied customer.
