Fabrication Overview

Engineered Steel offers best in class steel fabrication with a focused approach that results in on-time delivery of quality structural steel.  Our 25,000+ square foot facility in the Piedmont Triad region acts as a robust manufacturing platform to provide our customers with quality steel in a quick, efficient manner.  On average, our shop employees have 10+ years of tenure ensuring they have the experience to take care of our customers' needs.

Our founders originally outsourced fabrication, but quickly realized the downside of not having their own facility.  Since 1990, Engineered Steel has fabricated in its own facility. Having estimating, detailing and fabricating under one roof allows us to have full control of the process to ensure our customers are given the highest quality steel and best service in the industry.

Our President, Rick Ramsey, has recently used many lean manufacturing principles to create a safer working environment, to improve first-pass yield, to reduce lead time and to help create a more flexible scheduling process, in order to ensure that our customers reliably get the product that they want, when they want it.

Machining

We are capable of sawing, punching, shearing, nibbling,
drilling, bending and grinding all types and grades of
structural steel.  Our machines undergo a rigorous maintenance program to ensure that they produce consistent results, which helps eliminate unnecessary rework and reduce downtime, ultimately keeping our customers' steel costs low.

Assembly, Fabrication and Welding

In our fabrication department, structural steel pieces are laid out, fitted, assembled and welded.  All welding operations are performed by AWS Qualified welders. Experience is critical when it comes to ensuring fabrication and welding are accurate and our fitters and welders have an average of ~20 years of experience.  Various welding processes are used as needed to fulfill job requirements.

Quality Assurance

We take quality very seriously, because we know our customers do.  Our quality assurance program ensures that our products are high quality and meet required specifications by using a multi-phase inspection and documentation process that is consistent with AISC standards.  We are an AISC certified operation, the highest quality of standards in the structural steel fabrication industry.  Our reputation has been built from delivering good quality products for over 25 years.

Shipping Department

On-time delivery is essential in our industry.  We understand
when our customers need the steel, we must provide it to them in a timely manner.  Utilizing a combination of our own tractor trailers and local shipping companies, we have detailed processes in place to ensure we provide delivery when our customers need it.  Our shipping department and processes allow us to ensure a high level of on-time delivery.
