Roof Repair & Coating

In June, a customer was in need of a complete roof repair job. Our Field Coatings team cut out the blisters and repaired all leaking areas to ensure no water would get through. Afterwards, we applied a spray foam and elastomeric acrylic coating for the finishing touch. Our spray foam and elastomeric roof coating systems are proven to stop leaks, reduce building energy consumption, provide insulation, and improve structural integrity while costing less than a conventional roof replacement.

Fertilizer Conveyor Platform Repairs

CHALLENGE

We were approached by a customer needing a fertilizer conveyor platform to be repaired. One of their requirements was to improve the safety of the platform.

SOLUTION

Our Repairs & Maintenance Division had our field crew inspect the conveyor platform. Our field team replaced ‘mild steel’ with stainless steel on the platform to create a safer work environment.  The fertilizer conveyor platform is approximately 35 feet in the air increasing the need for making the platform as safe as possible.

LST 325 – Structural Steel

Evansville is home to an important battleship from World War II, the LST 325, the last remaining fully functioning LST in the country. During June and July of 1944, the LST 325 made 44 trips between France and England carrying ammunition and supplies to the mainland while also carrying back the wounded.  The LST 325 also played a vital role during the D-Day landings.  During WWII, Evansville produced over 150 LST’s and became the largest inland facility that manufactured LSTs in the world.

The LST 325 finally made it’s big move up the Ohio River to it’s new home.  Part of the move was creating a new Visitor’s Center and enhancing the dock to accommodate the LST 325.  Our Structural Steel Division fabricated structural steel, joist, and deck for the Visitor’s Center while also fabricating ramps and reinforcement steel for the vehicle bridge.  We are proud to play a part in giving this living monument its proper home.

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!

Custom Davit Crane Project

The team at Nix Metals designed and fabricated this Davit Crane for a customer on the West Coast.  The crane was fabricated in Poseyville and then shipped to Santa Clara, California.  Tony Shell traveled to California to install the crane for our customer.  The customer needed a safe way for their team to access and change parts on units on their roofs.  We are happy to assist our customers when safety is a priority!
