SourceOne routinely goes above and beyond to meet customer requests. When asked to certify its welders, there was zero hesitation.

After classroom training at SourceOne, four welders underwent testing May 4. Each employee welded a 3/8-inch coupon that was inspected by Brent Wohl, an instructor from Southeast Community College’s welding program.

“The specific discontinuities I look for during the visual inspection of a qualification test include reinforcement height, undercut, porosity, lack of fill and overlap and over workmanship,” Wohl said. “The tolerance for each are different, depending on the code or standard.”

Steve Prall, Fabrication Supervisor, has seen an increase in demand for certified welders and is proud his team of welders are among the best.

“It’s becoming more and more of a requirement for welding jobs,” he said. “Becoming certified proves our team is capable of meeting customer requirements and more than capable of getting it done in a short amount of time.”

Five of SourceOne’s 11 welders are now certified, with plans in place to certify several more.
