Arlington was one of the first plants ever to take and pass AISC certification; and we proudly maintain our certification today. We also received the 2019 Safety Award of Honor in the Fabricator Category.
We can handle structural members up to 30,000 lbs. (15 Tons) and 100' in length and rectangular HSS Tubing up to 24 in. Our shearing plate handles up to ¾" thickness. Yes, we can handle the big jobs!
We do beam cambering up to 36" wide beams. Cambering enables us to preload steel members for future loads on the steel once erected.

Our welders are continuously trained and certified to AWS D1.1. We can do the welds you need.
