Timeline of Company:

Alloy Welding Inc. was established by William Bean in 1973 in a small shop located at 11th street and  S. Memorial Drive in Racine, Wisconsin.  The original company had 6 employees.  

In 1986 Bob Lucksted and Dennis Weeks bought the business from William Bean and continued to operate it at its current location.  

In 1991 the buyout was complete and Bob and Dennis continued to grow the business eventually occupying the entire building. The company began to diversify into other markets and food handling conveyors became a mainstay of the work.  

In 2002 Dennis Weeks bought out Bob Lucksted and became the sole owner of Alloy Welding Inc.  

2006 brought about one of the biggest changes in the company when the decision was made to build a state of the art fabrication facility in Franksville Wisconsin.  With the new facility came efficiencies that allowed AWI to expand further.  

In 2007, Dennis Weeks brought on his current partner James Sytsma and entered into the pharmaceutical industry.  This addition created the need to add additional services such as polishing to meet the pharmaceutical requirements the new customers required.  

Today Alloy Welding Inc. continues to grow employing 60 employees and now provides product and services to customers from across the United States and internationally.
