In June, a contractor came to us needing a new system for their manufacturing customer to protect and hold pipes in place going from one building to the next. Our engineering, structural fabrication, and field services teams worked together to design, build, and install a galvanized steel bridge to support the pipes.
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.
Our Field Coatings Division performed an exterior metal building rehabilitation for a local power generating station. They battled the elements in order to power clean and degrease over 50k sq. ft. of exterior sheeting, replaced or overlaid several panels, then applied 4 to 7 mils of an acrylic exterior coating. This will allow the customer to have a clean and beautiful site as well as protect their assets for years to come.

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.
