Our design and manufacturing processes are literally powered by the sun. Our parent company, Kern Steel Fabrication, inc., is the only structural steel fabricator in the United States that actively employs solar energy throughout the entire fabrication process -from material handling, cutting, drilling, welding and coating, solar energy has proven to be both a competitive and cost-effective solution.
But we don’t stop there. Kern Solar leverages steel suppliers that employ the highest levels of recycled material on the planet -typically in excess of 88% recycled steel content. We then couple that with lean and ISO 9001 driven manufacturing processes that minimize waste while assuring quality.
