We specifically fabricate to meet the customer’s desired finishes or needs and incorporated into your design requirements. We can provide a number of standard surface finishes and weld finishes; from glass bead, brush finish or electro polished finishes to meet your specific requirements. Our Engineering Department can assist in your surface finish recommendations for your specific application.
