Knight Const. & Supply, Inc. (KCS) offers a wide variety of specialty fabrication and field welding services by certified welders. Our field fabrication services include structural steel, stainless steel, stainless steel pipe and aluminum. While much of our business is based on our field welding capabilities, often these projects start in our 250’ x 100’ x 50’ tall special projects shop in Deer Park, WA prior to field installation.
Certified Field Welding Services
Welding and millwright work are the two core expertise supporting most of KCS’s work. KCS’s certified welder list includes more than 25 weld operators certified to AWS D1.1 and 1.5. Several welders are certified in aluminum and stainless steel, including for ASME Sect. IX BPVC pipe welding.
We provide field welding services to the hydroelectric generator owners and OEMs to complete modifications of stayvanes, discharge ring overlay and machining and cavitation repairs.
