Our Facility

Our central location in Clifton NJ provides us with easy access to major highways such as I-80, I-287, I-280, Route 3, Route 19, and Route 46. We are only a short drive from New York City and other major urban centers in the tristate area.

Prior to relocating to our present 70,000 square foot facility, our team met with consultants to analyze potential layouts of the equipment and workstations. The chosen layout achieves an unparalleled work efficiency and optimizes the flow of material through our shop. The multiple bays in our facility are set up to enable simultaneous fabrication of several projects at once with no choke points in workflow. An interior runway allows several trucks at a time to load and offload material.

The shop is outfitted with numerous high-speed CNC machines such as drill lines, angle lines, a plate processor, and bandsaws. Each bay is also equipped with multiple heavy duty overhead cranes that add up to a total lifting capacity of 100 tons, with a maximum single lift of 35 tons. These features allow B&B to process and deliver steel in much shorter time windows than many other firms.

Our Welding Standards

B&B is committed to ensuring that only the highest quality weldments leave our facility for the jobsite. It is more than our reputation at stake. The safety of the public also depends on the structural integrity of our product. That is why we hold our welders and weld inspectors to strict standards.

Our welders are certified per AWS D1.1 and receive periodic documented training by a Certified Welding Inspector. Each welder maintains a copy of the AWS D1.1 Manual tables for preheating requirements as well as copies of our in-house welding procedures. All welds are visually checked and recorded during our In-Process and Final Inspections and all full/partial penetration groove welds are ultrasonically tested in the shop by our CWI. These practices ensure that when our steel arrives at the jobsite, it is ready for erection with no mishaps or delays in schedule.

Our Process

As an AISC Certified Fabricator, B&B Iron Works is held to a high standard of quality on all of our projects. Participating in this program requires that we maintain an internal Quality Control Program and are subject to an annual on-site audit performed by an outside agency hired by the American Institute of Steel Construction. B&B endeavors to exceed the requirements of AISC and has established measureable goals to continually improve on our commitment to quality.

Careful attention is paid to fabrication details such as preheating requirements, welded joint preparation, weld quality, surface preparation/coating, and final inspection. All of our equipment receives regular documented maintenance and calibration, from the most sophisticated machinery down to individual measuring tapes. In the office, our dedicated staff use the latest software for project coordination, tracking material, and programming CNC files for fabrication machinery. These practices ensure that every project achieves the highest measure of quality, timeliness, and efficiency.
