Proud to stand behind every job.


High quality metalwork is all that we do. Our history of repeat customers speaks to that. With consistent quality as our goal, we have invested in the technology necessary to complete the most complex and large-scale fabrications. Experienced supervisors manage each project’s details, ensuring quality on every step of production. Before shipping to you, your part will be inspected by our quality department to make sure it matches your specs exactly. We stand behind our work. Read our customer testimonials here.


We are proud of the safe manufacturing space we have created. It has earned us two MIOSHA Safety Awards: One Full Year Injury Free and 250,000 Hours NO Lost Time.

A safe workspace helps us retain the best metalworkers. Limiting production downtime saves our customers money. At our 100,000+ foot Clare, Michigan facility, we have a complete air make up system that exchanges our air eight times per hour. Regular safety training is required for each piece of equipment. Machines are serviced and replaced before they break. From the clean air our employees breathe to the well-maintained equipment they use, we have invested in a culture of safety. It’s how we do business.
