Advanced Metal and Welding was founded in 1926 by a hard-working entrepreneur named A. T. Girvin. Mr. Girvin focused the business on sheet metal work for the railroad industry. In 1951, Mr. Benjamin Crigler, in partnership with R. C. Duncan, ran the business for the recently retired Mr. Girvin.
In 1960, Mr. Crigler bought the company and began to pursue jobs in design, fabrication, and installation for various industries. After many successful years, Mr. Crigler retired in 2004 and subsequently sold the business to Mr. Brad Pearce, a mechanical engineer and businessman who has vast experience in the hard goods manufacturing industry.
In 2005, Advanced Metal and Welding moved into their new facility in Mableton, Georgia – just on the outskirts of Atlanta. The new facility added much needed square footage and interstate access to the business.
Our mission is to provide our customers with innovative ideas, products, solutions, and services that will vastly improve their positions in their markets. We recognize that improving our customers’ effectiveness is the best way to earn repeat business and ensure Advanced Metal’s future.
