About TMI Contractors
TMI Contractors, Inc. is well known in the industry as a full service structural steel fabricator located in the Midwest. We fabricate steel structures, platforms, handrail, stairs, grating and ladders for industrial plant sites, commercial buildings, hospitals, hotels and universities all over the United States. In addition, we provide roof steel, circular platforms, cage ladders, and spiral stairs for tank and vessel fabricators; we design and fabricate mudboats, generator houses, shaker pits and dog houses for the oil field industry; stainless steel platforms, ladders and handrail for the food industry; aluminum handrail, ladders and platforms for waste water plants. We detail our fabrication jobs in-house using the latest SDS2 modeling software.
We offer detailing services for other fabricators, engineering firms and detailing firms. We can produce CNC files to assist in fabrication or .kss exports for use with Fabtrol production software. We apply all of our paint finishes in-house. We have a mechanical blaster and hand blaster to apply the proper cleaning and profile for painting. We can apply anything from a red oxide primer to a three part finished paint system consisting of a zinc primer, epoxy intermediate coat, and urethane finish depending on the job specification. We also employ a NACE Level 2 Inspector to oversee the painting operations. We are close to four major galvanizing plants if your project requires galvanized steel.
Since we detail, fabricate and paint in-house, we can help you meet those tight deadlines when you need it yesterday. In addition, we fabricate all of our miscellaneous items, such as grating and handrails to ensure that we meet your deadline. Our shop will gladly fully assemble platforms with grating and handrails, stair stringers or trusses to help alleviate installation costs.
Everything we fabricate is checked 100% from start to finish. Mill certifications are kept on file for each piece. All welders have been certified per the AWS code. Records of inspection are kept for each job from whole layout to paint dft's. We know how much a fabrication error costs in the field and we take pride in producing a product that meets or exceeds specifications and fits. We have and will ship steel all over North America and overseas. Most of our shipping is done via flatbed trailer through a local trucking company. We also run our own hot-shot truck and trailer for loads under 18,000 lbs.
Our Estimating department will be happy to provide a hard bid on any structural project you might have. We also work with engineering firms, general contractors, owners and clients to provide budget pricing for a project they are considering or presenting.
