At Columbiana Boiler Company, we rely on centuries of experience in fabrication of galvanizing kettles and ASME pressure vessel products, combined with the newest fabrication and welding techniques available, to give our customers guaranteed state-of-the-art products.
Columbiana Boiler Company is more than a century old, dating back to its founding in 1894. Our first products included the manufacture of boilers and other steel plate work. The manufacture of boilers was discontinued in 1922 and production has since been focused on kettles for the galvanizing and other hot dip coating industries, pressure vessels and transportation packages for the chemical industry. Additionally, we have recently begun expanding our focus to include custom heavy plate fabrication. The pride in quality workmanship and products, which existed when the company was founded, still exists today with our experienced and stable work force.
Columbiana Boiler Company maintains a documented quality management system designed and implemented to fulfill various industrial standards such as the ASME U stamp and ASME R stamp, and the Association of American Railroads (AAR) M-1003. These systems create a framework for clearly defining the control of materials, processes and verification activities, thus providing our customers with confidence that the production of our products is performed in a well-defined and controlled environment.
