Benefits of working with an in-house fab shop

Equipment that is shop-fabricated is completed safer, faster, and more cost efficiently than on-site at customer locations, particularly when projects occur in facilities with on-going operations. Experienced staff works directly with customer specifications to determine the most competitive, cost-effective methods for fabricating the required components on time and to their satisfaction

By eliminating the need to outsource welding, fabrication and jacketing work, customers projects are successfully completed on time and in a controlled environment. Our experienced welders and pipefitters have worked on many types of jobs for multiple customers in a wide variety of industries.
