We manufacture custom steel platforms for rooftops and flood plain areas to support both equipment and prefabricated shelters. Unlike other companies, our fabrication team assembles and disassembles each platform before it leaves our shop in order to ensure that the field application will go smoothly.
With our experience and expertise in this area we get it right the first time. We know the importance of keeping to a tight schedule and we will guarantee on-time delivery. Our fabrication division can also install what we fabricate.

  • Custom Steel Platforms for Shelters and Equipment Cabinets
  • Customized Mounts for Towers and Water Tanks, Including Complete Corrals
  • Installation of Ports in Monopoles
  • Stud Welding on Water Tanks and Other Structures
  • Mig Tig and Stick Welding
  • On-Site Fabrication/Mobile Rig
  • Certified Welders

We pride ourselves on quality workmanship, a timely schedule and excellent customer service. Trust your next steel fabrication project to a company with experience and a proven track record. When you are on a job site with 6 crew members and a crane that is costing your company $200-$500 per hour, you can rest assured that your platform will fit together properly the first time.
