Southwest Welding LLC began in 1985 in the small village of Southwest, which is southwest of Goshen, Indiana. It was started in a 1500 square foot building as a small welding business servicing the local agricultural & industrial businesses.
In 2011 the laser cutters were moved to a 7200 square feet facility in nearby Wakarusa. In the following years three additions were added to that building and it is now over 32,000 square feet. Today they operate four laser cutters & one plasma cutter.
In 2013 the welding shop moved into a new 15,000 square feet building next to the laser facility. With the growing need of fabricated parts from clients, two additions were since added to the original building and now totals over 34,000 square feet. Today the company is a job shop servicing various industries with their fabricating needs.
In 2018 Southwest Welding added a third building to house a powder coating operation. With an overhead track and shuttle system they can easily handle parts up to 35 feet long using a variety of colors.
In 2019 Southwest Welding installed a new, state of the art tube laser. With this 3D laser they have the ability to cut miters, bevels, slots, copings, holes, and notches in square or round tube and then cut to finished length.
In 2019 Southwest Welding added a fourth building to their complex. This 30,000 square foot facility will house the chassis & wall fabrication needs required by their bus manufacturing customers. The original weld shop still contains welding operations along with the forming department. They also use a portion of the building for a shipping & receiving warehouse.
Today the company is still owned by the same family and we value our customer relationships we have established over the years. Our goal is to continue to improve the quality that our customers expect.
