Roof Access Stairs

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!

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!

Loader Access Platform

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!

Powder Coating: Holster Clips

At Nix Coatings, our powder coating team can handle projects of only a few parts to thousands of small parts.  We work with a holster manufacturer to powder coat these parts.  In 2017, we powder coated over 200,000 parts for this customer.  This process starts with a chemical pretreatment followed by a textured powder being applied.  These pictures show our overhead rail system, built and designed by the team at Nix Metals, that allows our team to work more safely and efficiently doing these types of high volume projects.  We appreciate the partnership with our customer and the attention to detail our team provides!
