Our engineering, custom fabrication, and field services teams worked together to design, build, and install a 50 foot all aluminum walkway for a dock extension. Now, the customer is able to move their dock 20 feet further out, so it can sit in a greater depth of water year around.
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.
Our Customer was looking for a safe way for their employees to access the roof for maintenance. We were able to work together to come up with location on the building to place stairs and do away with the ladder access they were using. From engineering to fabrication to coatings and finally to assembly and installation, we were able to help our customers keep their team safe!
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!
When our customers have new machines or plant layout we work closely with their team to make sure they have safe ways to access machines for breakdowns and maintenance. This project is a great example of our customer putting their team’s safety first when installing new equipment in their plant. Cool fact for this project: It is PE stamped with a seismic design category E rating, which will prevent fail during a major earthquake. This facility falls on a major fault line here in the Midwest. Hats off to the engineering team, fabrication team and the coatings team on a job well done!
Nix Metals had a customer concerned with their team’s safety in moving tools in elevated spaces. The team helped them design and engineer a lifting basket to move the tools safely and efficiently in their work space. It was then powder coated and finished by the team at Nix Coatings. This was another great partnership with our customer to help their team work safely!
We are proud to work with our customers who hold employee safety to high standards. We worked with our customer to design and build custom aluminum arch ways to promote safety throughout their facilities. The team at Nix Metals designed and built the aluminum arches and they were then painted by the team at Nix Coatings. We love working with customers on innovative and fun ideas to improve employee engagement!
The team at Nix Metals worked together to produce these Tote Carts for one of our manufacturing customers. Our engineering department designed the carts with the customer, the fabrication shop processed the materials and fabricated the parts and assembled the carts. The team at Nix Coatings sandblasted and powder coated the carts before assembly. Great job to everyone on this team effort!

The team at Nix Metals has been busy working on this robot and hopper platform for an injection molding company. Our engineering team designed the platform before going into production. When completed, the team at Nix Coatings will powder coat the platform and then our field services team will install it on site.
