Welcome to Silver Lake Welding Service, Inc. - Steel Fabricators

Strategically located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley in Dayton, VA, we began as Layman Machine Shop in 1945.  Since our incorporation as Silver Lake Welding Service, Inc. (SLWS) in 1974, we have expanded to a state-of-the-art 15,000+ square foot steel fabrication facility housing 20 highly skilled employees providing over 200 years of combined experience.  Our shop features the latest array of steel fabrication equipment and machinery designed to facilitate completion of each project on time and to your precise requirements.

As a Class A contractor, we specialize in providing solutions to large and small projects in steel fabrication, custom parts fabrication, steel erection and installation, industrial processing equipment and installation, conveyors, material handling equipment, access platforms, ladders and stairs, equipment repair and refurbishment, handrails and guardrails, tanks, custom built trailers and much more.

Our approach to every job is really quite simple.  We ask every employee, for every job, to answer this question, “Would I want this job and would I want to pay for it?”  Because we value your dollar as much as we do our own, we stress ingenuity and resourcefulness leading to reduced overhead costs in order to offer competitive pricing to our clients.

At SLWS lean manufacturing is not just a principle – it’s a practice.  We invite you to learn more about putting our extensive experience, high standards, personalized job perspective, and resourceful processing to work for you.  Contact us with your questions.  We are ready, willing, and able to help.
