TW STEEL FABRICATION
T.W. Steel Fabrication Limited (trading as Tank-Weld Fabrication) is one of the largest fabricators on the Island of Jamaica of tanks from mild steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminium as well as fiberglass-coated underground tanks.
Additionally, during its over 40 years of experience in steel fabrication, the company had undertaken a wide variety of steel works including fabricating and erecting steel structures such as A-Frame buildings, Lean-to and support structures of varying sizes. Projects vary but have included warehouses, offices, mezzanines and residential applications, the erection of steel towers and substation.
The softer side of fabrication is portrayed in its work done with artists in constructing monuments and sculptures.
Clients include Petcom, Epping Oil, Shell, National Water Commission, J. Wray & Nephew, Red Stripe, The Alumina Industry, WISYNCO and other Architects and Contractors.
We are a major source for the fabrication and erection of warehouses and steel framed buildings, which includes the sheeting of buildings and fabricating and installing mezzanines to new or existing structures.
Tank-Weld also offers a turn-key operation for steel structures by designing customer’s buildings, getting the plans drawn up and approved, fabricating and erecting the structure.
We have also fabricated and erected specialty structures for Petrojam, the Sugar Industry and several other companies.
We are a supplier of steel decking, for which we have an agreement with an overseas supplier.
Tank-Weld Fabrication has supplied and installed bolted tanks ranging from a size of 18,000 U.S. gallons up to 2.1 Million U.S. gallons for different customers including the National Water Commission, Housing Agency of Jamaica and Rural Water. Bolted tanks (galvanized and epoxy coated) are supplied through an agreement with our supplier from the USA.
Steel tanks manufactured by the company vary in size from 200 to 500,000 gallons, however, the most common are between 2,000 and 5,000 gallons. These are typically fuel tanks. Due to environmental issues, underground fuel tanks are required to be fiberglass coated and Tank-Weld has been able to offer a competitive price for this process. On the larger side, the Company fabricated and erected 500,000 gallon welded tanks for Shell Company and Carib Engineering.
The company outbid an overseas fabricator for the supply of 5 stainless steel fermentors varying in size from 40,000 gallons to 50,000 gallons for the Wray & Nephew group of companies.
Polished Concrete Flooring
For the past three years, we have been offering polished concrete flooring. The process involves cutting the concrete floor, staining to a chosen colour (if desired) and polishing at a cost that is less than tiling. The end result is a durable floor that has the appearance of a terrazzo tile, which can be used in residential, office and factory settings. Customers include WISYNCO, Lasco, and Jamaica Beverages.

Tank-Weld Fabrication completed a project in 2008
for Carib Cement Company Ltd. for the fabrication of over 500,000 lbs of ducting and silos for the upgrading of the plant at Rockfort, Jamaica.
Transmission towers have been erected for Jamaica Public Service Company, Cable and Wireless, Digicel and Centennial and we recently erected lighting towers for UDC in the Sports Complex in Montego Bay.
Work has been done for sculptures also: most notably, some of the monuments done in 1999 for the National Heroes at National Heroes Park.
