We are a fully equipped custom metal fabrication firm located in South Western Ontario, with easy access to major highways and close to a large steel and aluminum supplier base. Our head office and two manufacturing plants are located in Woodstock, Ontario. Powered by a dedicated team of long term employees, the facilities are equipped with precision laser cutting, CNC braking and fabricating equipment. Our Aluminum and Steel welding is certified to AWS and CWB standards.
Cornell started in 1967 as a small one-person welding and repair shop. In the first few years, we grew to have five truck mounted portable welding machines doing in-plant maintenance work for local industries. In addition, we produced miscellaneous metal products and ornamental iron work for industrial and commercial construction, as well as residential projects.
Cornell also became involved in the design and manufacture of forms and molds for the precast concrete industry. This business has grown to become a significant part of our company, with customers across Canada and in many states in the USA. In the early 1970's, we also produced a safe model of liquid manure spreaders for local agricultural use.
The company grew and twice moved to larger facilities. In 1974, it was incorporated as Cornell Welding & Fabricating Ltd. In 1976, property was purchased at our current location, 960 Keyes Drive, in Woodstock. As business increased, additions were added to the office and plant and the building next door was acquired.
In 2005, Cornell won the Outstanding Achievement Award for Small Manufacturing, presented by the Woodstock District Chamber of Commerce. In 2007, the company celebrated its 40th successful year in business. A modern 16,000 square foot addition was completed to Plant 2, at 984 Keyes Drive. New hi-tech fabricating and cutting equipment was installed in Plant 1 to provide a competitive edge in our various markets for custom components.
