Welding, Forming, Machining


Barkers Welding Inc has been providing industrial services for the upper Midwest and beyond since 1984. Our expertise includes fabrication and repair of many different types of steel, aluminum, and stainless-steel products. Our shop capabilities include welding, forming, machining, and CNC pattern cutting. These skills are required to manufacture new products as well as repair existing. First, our CAD and engineering experience allows us to create virtual prototypes and then actual prototypes once a design is confirmed. Next, AWS certified welders can use their decades of experience to professionally manufacture the OSHA compliant products you require.


In service to the trucking industry we have performed frame repairs, box or tailgate repairs, and fifth wheel plate replacements. However, our capabilities extend beyond this. For example, the corrosion of steel and aluminum fuel tanks around the strap areas is common. Adding plates around the strap area can add years to the lifetime of a fuel tank. Therefore, we have repaired hundreds of tanks over the years. In addition to repairing leaks we have also added fittings, extended tanks, shortened tanks, and split tanks into two compartments to accommodate hydraulic fluid.


At BWI, above all, we have the knowledge and experience to take on the metal product fabrication requirements for your business. We have delivered metal fabrications all over the upper Midwest and also shipped products all over the nation.
