State-of-the-Art Facility is Ideal for Custom Metal Fabrication Projects
GREEN BAY, Wisconsin – High-quality welding and metal fabrication have provided the foundations for Badger Sheet Metal Works’ reputation for almost a century, with the company’s modern production facility creating ideal conditions for the efficient delivery of a wide range of projects. Custom metal fabrication is the centerpiece of Badger Sheet Metal Works’ business model. Its experienced team is committed to exploring the potential of every project and delivering extraordinary results.
“Welding and metal fabrication are major considerations with custom metal fabrication projects,” said Sam Thomas, Vice President of Operations at Badger Sheet Metal Works. “We have the processes, expertise and equipment to deliver a wide range of finished products.”
Badger Sheet Metal Works has built-in stop points in its metal fabrication process for quality inspection and to confirm expectations. The welding team holds standard American Welding Society (AWS) D1.1 qualifications and has extensive experience adhering to custom weld qualifications requested by customers. This clear understanding of weld qualifications prevents project delays and ensures the highest quality welds. In addition, an on-staff Certified Weld Inspector (CWI) boosts Badgers Sheet Metal Works a step beyond many of its competitors in terms of welding quality.
“There is a level of craftsmanship and artistry that goes into what our people are capable of doing with welding and metal fabrication,” Thomas said. “Whether that comes from an understanding of what the customer wants or needs, or our team providing them with a vision for a product that’s greater than their own, we can make it better.”
Facility Maximizes Assembly Capabilities
Badger Sheet Metal Works moved into a custom-designed, state-of-the-art production facility in 2008 that enables the company’s expert tradesmen to deliver turnkey metal fabrication projects for customers. The physical plant complements Badger Sheet Metal Works’ expertise in guiding complex metal fabrication projects from pre-planning and cost estimation, all the way through design, project management, shipping and installation.
Four crane rails feature a total lifting capacity of 30 tons in the main assembly bay. A 22-foot under-hook height gives Badger’s crews the ability to complete a wide range of custom metal fabrication projects. The building’s 110,000-square-foot main shop floor provides the space to handle a wide range of projects. In cases where the 30-ton, in-house lifting capacity isn’t enough, the main bay has room to bring in additional lift equipment.
“This gives us the ability to complete even heavy-plate metal fabrication projects in one location,” Thomas said.
Heavy-Plate Metal Fabrication
Badger Sheet Metal Works earned its reputation for quality metal fabrication and welding while serving the paper industry in the early years of its existence. The quick turnaround process the company developed during that era continues to serve its customers today.
The company’s modern facility has the capability of completing heavy-plate metal fabrication projects as well as aluminum and other lighter-weight projects.
“The main difference between heavy-plate metal fabrication and other custom metal fabrication projects is the thickness of the metal,” Thomas explains. “This can translate into considerably heavier and complex lifts, which is exactly what we designed this facility to handle.”
Stainless Steel Fabrication Capabilities
In addition to the main assembly bay, the Badger Sheet Metal Works building features an advanced stainless steel production facility with a clean environment that is suitable for producing containers used in the food and dairy, and pharmaceutical industries.
The facility meets stringent 3-A Sanitary Standards and the medical industry fabrication products Badger produces have a very low FA value. This means products will degrade less and last longer than average.
