Weld Shop Rendering

BASX is proud to announce we will be breaking ground on a new Weld Shop addition on the north side of our campus. This project will provide 36,000 additional square feet of dedicated space for a state-of-the-art welding facility. The shop will support welding operations for air handler base assemblies, fab cubes and related custom HVAC products. The space will also provide room for a new BLM Group tube laser, house a large (HE&M brand) vertical band saw and be fully air conditioned with filtration. This addition will provide workspace for roughly 50 current employees with the capacity to fill an additional 30 welding positions. This increase in warehouse space will allow BASX to utilize and repurpose the existing weld space in order to meet the needs of our Data Center, Cleanroom and Commercial HVAC customers.
Several key stakeholders and project partners plan to attend the event. This group includes BASX Co-founders, Dave Benson and Matt Tobolski as well as:
•    Blaise Cacciola - Architect
•    SWB - Construction Contractor
•    HWA - Civil Engineering 
•    Ashley Vance - Structural Engineering
•    REDI - Redmond Economic Development Inc.
•    Redmond Chamber of Commerce
