Arntzen Corporation produces quality large diameter caissons for drilling foundation contractors. Caissons are used by contractors to stabilize soil, transferring heavy loads above ground into the foundation.
Power transmission towers, cell towers, building and bridges are some of the structures where soil stabilization and a solid foundation are critical.
Steel Caisson Sizing
We build each caisson specifically to our customer’s needs. We are capable of producing our rolled and welded steel caissons from 2 ft to 17 ft in diameter, up to 2 inches thick and any length. We also provide further fabrication such as reinforcement bands, twisting slots, picking eyes, cutting teeth and an array of other options requested by our customers.
THE PIPE MILL WITH FAST SERVICE
Arntzen Corporation operates pipe mills in 2 locations with 200,000 square ft under roof and 35 acres of additional outdoor storage. With over 17 plate rolls and this large facility, it allows us to carry an immense inventory of steel plate and convert it quickly into a steel casing pipe, resulting in shorter lead times.
