Work is starting slow in Lima but will be needing Stainless welders throughout the summer and into the fall. Our training center is open every day for anyone that would like to sharpen up their skills or practice a new skill. We will also be needing a lot of Stainless welders and Flux Core Mig welders for the upcoming work including the long term job that is coming up this fall for Black and Veatch at the Oregon Clean Air energy Plant. We currently have a shortage of Stainless Steel tube welders for the upcoming work and need guys to step up so we can man our work. Contact Paul McGrew at the training center to set up a time to practice. We have the facility to get you to work, we just need you to take advantage of it.
