We ensure a high standard of quality control with our in-house fabrication of industrial ventilation systems, material handling constructs, structural steel solutions and machine guarding. Our dedicated quality control lead checks each piece prior to shipment and on-site assembly, reducing installation costs by ensuring the right fit.
Our Goal: The right fit the first time!

The entire IVI team considers quality control an intricate part of their everyday job.
We want our product to be reliable, safe, strong, and maintainable.
All prints are checked by our engineering and design teams before going to the production floor. Once there, all items undergo a three-point inspection process for dimension, size, location or placement, material, and workmanship before leaving our facility. These procedures guarantee that the finished product will meet or exceed industry standards and satisfy all OSHA requirements.
