After many years of on-site and field experience in the mechanical and plumbing industry, Welch and Rushe recognized the benefits and increased efficiency gained from the establishment of an in-house Fabrication Department. In 2005, we built a 16,000 SF customized fabrication facility located within our corporate headquarters in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. This facility allows Welch and Rushe to quickly and effectively respond to all the requirements of our clients’ projects.
Our in-house Fabrication Department is a key component in promoting safety. Jobs once performed in the field can now be completed in a controlled environment. This reduces the number of steps performed in the constantly changing job site conditions and provides a consistent location and process for operations. The result is a reduction of the potential safety concerns associated with this type of work. This also helps achieve better quality control and assurance.
