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.

Restoration of Local Historic Covered Bridges

Our Field Coatings division restored two local historical landmarks: the Old Red Covered Bridge and the Wheeling Covered Bridge in Gibson County.  We were tasked by the Gibson County Economic Development Corporation with power washing the inside and outside of each bridge, to remove loose paint, rotted wood, dirt, debris, etc.  We then sprayed and back-rolled 2 coats of Sherwin-Williams Premium Exterior Duration Coating with the bridges respective colors.

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!

Pallet Guarding Project

Nix Metals had a customer needing a support system to keep their employees safe in the event of a racking system fail in a highly used walkway.  Our engineering team designed a guarding system that would work in their plant.  The fabrication team built the guarding and then it went to Nix Coatings for powder coating.  Our field services team worked at the customer job site to erect and install the guarding.    Congrats to all involved in this successful project!
