Fabricating To Specifications

CON-SERV INC. is an AISC Simple Bridge Fabrication-certified plant, and also boasts an AISC Sophisticated Enclosed Paint Endorsement. We are approved for fabricating structural steel to accepted industry standard guidelines. Our in-house Quality Control System ensures “to-spec” finished product quality. The electronic system monitors the production cycle from the receipt of incoming raw materials through work-in-progress milling, grinding and polishing to shipping your finished product. Our Quality Control System has been accepted by many major engineering and construction firms in the United States. These include Walter P. Moore, Jacobs Engineering, Fluor, Wood Group, Black & Veatch, Stone & Webster, TechnipFMC, AECOM, KBR, Thornton Tomasetti, HOK, and KPFF Consulting Engineers.

Precision Welding

Experienced CON-SERV welders perform detailed MIG, TIG and STICK welding on all steels, including stainless steels. In addition, state of the art robotic welding can be performed when higher throughput is required.

Painting & Metallizing

Our in-house spray paint booth carries an AISC Sophisticated Enclosed Paint Endorsement and enables CON-SERV to offer your choice of quality wet coatings, heat-activated powder coatings or metallized finishes in your choice of color.

Prompt Shop Drawing Approval

The CON-SERV Engineering Team has 37 years of experience in coordinating fast approvals of shop drawings to keep your project on schedule. CON-SERV experts will review your drawings, suggest and make any necessary design revisions, and submit them for project owner approval in a timely manner.

CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Bridge Mill

CON-SERV’s unique 96” Bridge Mill can save you money and time by fabricating large, custom structural steel components in addition to your bearing order. Almost nothing is too large or too complex.

PDH/CEU Courses

CON-SERV is developing a program of free Certified PDH and CEU Courses for Professional Engineers and architects. A certified instructor will come to your site. Engineers may earn Professional Development Hours in Bearings Science for bridge decks and architectural applications.
