Parish Center Handrail Project

Often times we work with manufacturing and industrial clients to fabricate handrails for their work spaces.  We always enjoy the opportunity to build handrails that are not only functional but add to the aesthetics of a new building project.  These handrails were fabricated in our Poseyville shop, powder coated by our Coatings team and installed by a few team members at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Haubstadt, Indiana.  Great work by all of our team!
