Fabrication

Steel fabrication is the process of transforming raw metal into usable solutions for construction and assembly by shaping them to their desired forms. The fabrication of steel requires many complex techniques and equipment and leaves little room for error. That’s why it’s crucial to partner with a highly skilled steel fabrication company to achieve the best results for your next project. Our experience from structural steel fabrication to heat recovery steam generator systems and everything in between is what makes us the right partner for the job.

You can invest in cutting-edge fabrication services from the experienced professionals at Goodhart Sons, Inc. We are a fully equipped steel fabricator with over 175,000 square feet of production space and more than 85 years of experience. See how our fabrication capabilities and knowledge can be used to meet your project needs.

Structural Steel Fabrication and Erection

We offer structural and access steel fabrication and erection services for companies looking to build complex structures for their industries. The structural steel erection process involves fabricating, lifting, and assembling a network of steel segments to create an intricate building frame. We also offer structural steel painting services, where we finish your structural steel beams to ensure that they remain preserved for years to come.
