Weldall grew from humble beginnings and has been expanding ever since. Back in 1973 Dave Bahl acquired a welder through a lease/purchase program and started working in a rented room smaller than one of our machined surface, fit-up tables today. One year later that original location was outgrown and five employees were on board. The path of growth and expansion eventually led to our current location.
Our 2001 S. Prairie location in Waukesha is positioned for even greater future growth as our property spans 13.75 acres. In 2011, the company took advantage of some of that forward thinking and completed a 76,000 square foot addition, which increased the total to 220,000 square feet under roof.
Size isn't all our location offers. The space not only allows ample room to accommodate the fabrication of the medium to very large weldments that have become a Weldall specialty, but every expansion and new piece of equipment has been selected and placed to facilitate work flow, which in turn increases productivity.
Our company is not just growing physically; we're growing intellectually as well. The ability to address the most complex applications, along with an extremely wide variety of required quality documentation, has allowed us to differentiate Weldall from competitors all over the country. We are also constantly searching for new ideas to improve our value to existing and potential clients. We embrace change, learn from it, and quickly respond to it.
With capacity always exceeding the number of people available, we have embraced technology to increase our productivity, supplying customers with superior components with a lead time that is normally within industry standards.
Weldall will continually raise the bar on self expectations so that our customers can depend on us to provide only the finest quality work. We will always invest in the most advantageous best practices and the latest technologies in order to constantly improve operations and efficiencies. By building on a foundation of quality, reliability and technology, we will be able to expand our offerings and build stronger business partnerships. These are not only the keys to Weldall's continued success and growth but our clients' as well.
Weldall believes that improving our environment is important to our Employees, Customers, Suppliers, Community and Neighbors if we are going to continue to grow as a business and make a difference. We accomplish this by:
Customer satisfaction is not a goal, it is our mandate. We will deliver superior value through quality, reliability and technology thereby exceeding customer expectations at every opportunity.
The critical nature of our clients’ weldments demands that our Quality be second to none. It is our company’s meticulous attention to detail and overall Quality that earns us the right to provide them with “life critical” products which simply cannot be trusted to others. Every employee of Weldall is extremely proud, and protective of this distinction and it will never fade.
We will pursue our business interests worldwide in a socially responsible manner and conduct all business activities with the highest ethical standards.
The men and women of Weldall make our success possible so we strive to create a workplace where every employee can share a sense of ownership for that success. We value open and honest communications and encourage the involvement and reward the contribution of each employee. We provide equal opportunity in our employment and promotion practices.
Weldall proudly accepts the opportunity to support the neighboring community and non-profit organizations. Here is a partial list of organizations Weldall supports:
*Each year we have two food drives and over the past two years we have collected close to 1,000 non-perishables for those in need.
** Our plant is visited four times each year for on-site blood donations. Employees are encouraged to participate during their work shift. With approximately 35 donors stepping up at each drive, Weldall is proud to supply much needed blood donations to approximately 325 patients annually!
