Customers benefit from our unique combination of craftsmanship, equipment and space. Our highly skilled fabricators have many years of experience shaping a variety of metals and have built a reputation for delivering the highest quality work on-time and within budget. The Certified Welder program is a performance-based program. It requires the completion of tests for procedures used in the structural steel, petroleum pipelines, sheet metal and chemical refinery welding industries.

During the scheduled appointment at an AWS Accredited Test Facility, candidates must deposit a sound weld that will be inspected by an AWS Certified Welding Inspector (CWI). The Welder's ability to properly adhere to the Welding Procedure Specification, selected from available QC7 Supplements, includes fit-up, assembly, and positioning.
