We understand the unique challenges of the food and beverage industries such as the necessity to adhere to stringent FDA and USDA standards to ensure safe, hygienic tanks, vessels and equipment— including compliance with cleaning and maintenance codes. That’s why we offer high performance finishing options that deliver highly polished, hygienic surfaces with RA (roughness average) as low as 10 and under, for outstanding product releasability and cleaning ease.

Our highly skilled craftsmen regularly perform mechanical polishing, electropolishing, pickling and passivation to meet your specific needs—including ASTM standards and more.

Maintaining temperature is also of paramount importance to ensure consistent, quality food and beverage processing. You can depend on our engineering specialists to bring deep expertise in heat transfer and temperature control to every project.

All our fabricated tanks, vessels and equipment are code compliant and tested to ensure the highest quality and performance.


We specialize in the custom design and fabrication of corrosion-resistant food and beverage tanks, vessels and equipment using specialty metals including High-Nickel Alloys (Hastelloy, Monel, Inconel), Duplex Stainless Steel and Austenitic 300 Series Stainless Steels, and Super Austenitic Stainless Steel Alloys that:

  • Deliver excellent corrosion resistance
  • Meet stringent sanitary requirements
  • Optimize performance & reliability
  • Prevent cross contamination
  • Provide material traceability/documentation
  • Improve yields
  • Minimize process leaks
  • Maximize safety
  • Comply with ASME, API, TEMA, or UL codes
  • Adhere to stringent QA/QC procedures
