Engineering Review & Prototyping
Whether you have an existing design or just an idea, our SolidWorks certified designers can work with you to create a fully rendered engineering schematic of your project. We can then use that plan to create a prototype or move directly into fabrication.
Production & Finish Welding
Have more work than your own in-house department can handle? Do your in-house capabilities not include finish welding? We are here to help, whether you need full production runs or someone to help handle overflow from your own manufacturing facility.
Architectural & Miscellaneous Metals
Need something truly unique in your home or office? Whether for aesthetics or specialized application, EA-Craftworks can craft decorative interior and exterior products to meet your needs – anything from countertops and railings to furniture.
EA-Craftworks can create custom signs of any type for your business or home – interior or exterior mounted, free standing sidewalk displays, or permanent installations. We can work with your idea or logo or help you to come up with something from scratch to highlight the personality of your business.
Have a unique or special need for your industrial shop? We can craft special use carts, railings, gates, or other custom safety solutions or unique projects to fulfill any need you may have.
