Custom Fabrication

Lonnie Mecham | 510.618.2978

Our welding and machine shops combine the art of repair and fabrication to deliver customized solutions to your heavy equipment problems. Countless prototype models have emerged from our shop over the years: some at the request of customers, others through a combined effort between Peterson and CAT Engineering. Many have been patented and have found their way into the Caterpillar product line itself. Today that tradition continues in Peterson's Manufacturing Division, which offers a complete line of its own demolition buckets and special attachments, plus the capability to address unique and unconventional equipment needs that might arise on a customer's jobsite.

Our in-house engineering staff, using AutoCAD's sophisticated computer graphics, can design, simulate and test potential ideas even before a single pattern is laid out to cut. From there, special tooling like the giant Giddings & Lewis boring mill, the 500-ton Pacific Brake Press, the automatic-tracing burning machine, dual ram press, tungsten application machine, and automatic wire welders, are used by a crew long-experienced in customer fabrication.

Combined, these tools and teamwork turn customers' equipment problems into finished products quickly and efficiently with the quality people have come to expect from Peterson.
