In this video from Building Wisconsin TV, we take a closer at pipe welding and learn about Straight Line Fabrication with members from UA Local 400. Host Stuart Keith meets Business Mgr Doug Dokey at the UA Local 400 Training Center in Kaukauna to learn about training for new and experienced welders and one of the only Pipe Welding Fabrication Apprenticeships in the US. Then it’s out to signatory contractors including Team Industries, Enerpipe and Piping Systems Inc to get a first-hand look at straight line pipe fabrication where all the welding is done in a controlled environment and then shipped to the project site.
