Welding Contractor


Got an LLC going and doing good for just starting out. Just turned 27 been a Pipefitter/Welder for 9 years, everything from chill water to welding on the steam generator at a nuke. Made great money working for somebody else but itís time I made my own name.

Question - This is a diverse group of individuals and businesses, in your day to day operations have you ever needed or hired a Welding contractor for a job? Trying to broaden my horizons as they say.

Re: Welding Contractor


I think your best opportunity will be doing fabrication and welding for small to mid size manufacturing plants, etc. They probably won't have those skills in house.

Re: Welding Contractor


Iíve sought the services of a mobile welder once.

Fixing/fabricating gates may be an opportunity.

Re: Welding Contractor


If you're wanting small fabrication type stuff, reach out to snow plow companies. The hours would suck, but you could charge a premium during a snow storm (if you wanted to work 24 hrs during an event) with mobile welding. It's hard to find someone at 2am to fix your broken plow.

Just something out of the box.

You're probably wanting something larger though. I'd just reach out to commercial builders in your area. Give them your contract information, what you do and a little about yourself. Never hurts to network like that.
