Lee Contracting has a state-of-the-art in-house fabrication shop with full capabilities. Our expert fabricators handle custom design and installation of everything from stairs and mezzanines to pump skids and structural steel layouts. We have structural engineers stamp and certify all structures and designs. We also offer 24-hour welding and fabrication services and full machining capabilities.
Lee’s fabricating teams are routinely exceeding our customer’s expectations. One example of this is when US Ecology was looking to replace seven tanks at their facility in Belleville, MI. Other contractors said it would take 26 weeks to replace one tank. Lee came in and set a very aggressive timeline to replace all seven tanks. We started replacing the tanks two at a time, in a three-week window. All seven tanks were fabricated in our 40,000 square foot in-house fabrication shop. Each tank, which weighed about 150,000 pounds, were then loaded on to one of Lee’s trucks and transported from Pontiac to be installed at the US Ecology facility in Belleville, Michigan.
Another example of exceeding our customer’s expectations came when Steel Dynamics needed a liner built for their descaling pit. This liner protects the concrete of the pit from eroding during the descaling process. The liner is approximately 9 ft. x 8 ft. x 10 ft. tall. We only had a small window of time to fabricate the liner and transport it down to the customer’s facility in Indiana. If the timeline was not met, the customer would lose out on valuable production time. We met the customer’s deadlines to ensure they would not lose any production time.
These are just two of our fabrication shop success stories. If you are impressed and want to find out more about how Lee Contracting’s fabrication department can be an asset to your business visit our fabrication page. Or, if you’re ready to request a quote, you can do so here.
