Steel fabrication is a specialty that relies on many different disciplines such as design, engineering, detailing, welding and painting. All of those are offered by Somerset Steel Erection, one of the companies of family owned Riggs Industries.
“We fabricate for the steel and power industries,” says Daniel Riggs Jr., vice president of Somerset Steel Erection. “We do design work as well. We do our own detailing and engineering work and create drawings for the steel industry. In Virginia, we do some marine-type work in the shipyards. We do anything that is heavy industrial, from steel to power to coal to chemical and paper companies.”
