In September, our Custom Fabrication Division fabricated, coated, and installed this Rail Car Loading Platform outside of Lexington, KY. This project took full team effort to complete!
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 Structural Fabrication Division fabricated steel for the Paducah Innovation Hub in Kentucky. The Paducah Innovation Hub is a facility that helps grow talent for the region through immersive experiences in technology, trades, healthcare, river industry and more. This project included 570 tons of fabricated steel as well as a considerable amount of AESS (Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel).
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!
The team at the Superior Fabrication division of Nix Metals processed, fabricated and painted all of the structural steel that is being used to build this retail shopping center. It is exciting to see all of the steel transformed into buildings and facilities for our customers! Great job to the crew in Rockport!
