Project Highlight

This quarter we completed a large industrial ventilation project in Ohio. This was a collaborative project utilizing all of our departments and services: engineering, fabricating and field installation. We upgraded and replaced the ventilation and clean room hoods. The original hoods and duct were constructed from a combination of mild steel and stainless. We replaced everything including the fans and stacks with fiberglass. We cleaned the room with a hot power wash/abrasive garnet, repainted and also updated the electrical.

Employee Spotlight:

Gary Bucher

Gary Bucher is a fabricator who has worked for WeFab since October of 1987. He is our longest employed fabricator with this year being 35 years with WeFab. He came to WeFab from a production welding position and was the 10th employee hired at the start of the company. He says he enjoys all the different projects he’s been a part of over the years and that variety is what has kept his interest in his position.

Over time the company has grown and the ability to do larger projects has grown which also keeps things interesting but he says he does sometimes miss completing more of the smaller “day to day” projects. Also over the years technology has come a long way which is at times helpful but at the same time has taken away from some of the hands on aspects of being a fabricator.

Outside of work he is married and has 2 children and 9 grandchildren. He enjoys spending time with them and tending to his yard work and cooking dinners at home.
