A minimum of two years experience as a Welder
The right candidate should pass a Weld test
FCAW Flux-core welders-versed in 1/16” & 3/32” wire capable of passing appropriate weld tests and regularly completing acceptable ¾” fillets according to D1.1 & customer criteria. Back-gouging and UT acceptable weld skills a must. 1st & 2nd shift positions required.

CNC Boring Bar and Large VTL (199”diameter x 120”height) Machinists capable of own set-ups with 10,000lb thru 1000,000lb weldments. Capable of using G&M code and editing. 1st & 2nd shift positions required.
Burn table operator capable of processing (burn & bevel) plate shape thicknesses thru 12”.
We have full time first shift openings for TIG/MIG welder fabricators. TIG welding is a plus.
The difference between this and other welding positions is that this is not a production welder or welder fitter type of work. A setup welder might be a closer match: the welder fabricator has to learn how to look at the shop drawings, interpret what is required, lay it out, cut the material and fabricate the product. They may work on six or more totally different products in a week, each requiring different techniques. Lots of thinking and problem solving will be required. They need to be able to visualize how the product goes together from a two dimensional drawing to a 3D object.
