Welding & Fabrication

Heavy fabrication has become a trademark of D&S Machine Service. Our state of the art fabrication facility was built specifically to address the air quality demands inherent in heavy fabrication and plate processing atmospheres.

Both our welding personnel and our processes meet AWS D1.1 requirements and we routinely qualify procedures specific to customer requirements.

Our on-staff certified weld inspector guarantees the quality of our workmanship assuring our customers they get what they ordered.


Our 50,000 sq. foot fabrication facility houses our burning and bending equipment and has (10) weld positioners up to 18.5 tons that feature custom fixturing equipment for in-position welding of small or large parts. A 325 ton by 10′ hydraulic press brake supports our fabricators for all their straightening and forming needs.

This facility also incorporates (4) 20 T cranes, (1) 15 T crane and each column has a 1 T crane to assist our fabricators in safely and efficiently handling structures within the work areas.

Our unique combination of large fabrication coupled with our large machining capacity creates the one-stop-shop scenario we have worked to produce.
