Dugway Proving Ground is located about 45 miles Southwest our shop but that just means we are one of the closest welding, fabrication, machining and electronic pcb developers to this military installation. Dugway encompasses an area the size of the state of Rhode Island is surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges. Also in our back yard is the Tooele Army Depot (TEAD) is a United States Army post. The depot serves as the National Inventory Control Point for ammunition peculiar equipment, developing, fabricating, modifying, storing and distributing such equipment. Both Dugway and TEAD have brought us some unusual projects and at times they they don't tell us what we are building for them but it is always fun to speculate. Tooele Army Depot originally opened in 1942 during the early phase of U.S. involvement in World War II.
