Welding the Schuette Way

We're always improving our welding process by requiring all new hires to complete Schuette's Welding Academy.

Run by our full-time certified welding inspector, the academy is required for all new hires regardless of their training or certifications. This training protects new hires from starting from scratch on a production line. The Welding Academy ensures our new hires welding meets our high-quality standard.

The academy also provides continuous training and advancements for our employees.

Our welding departments work on a variety of alloys and thickness. We have:

CWIMMA

Schuette Metals is one of the founding members of the Central Wisconsin Metal Manufactures Alliance (CWIMMA).

Founded in 2016, CWIMMA is a non-profit organization to increase educational and career awareness in welding, fabricating, machining, and manufacturing trades.

It's essential highlighting to our future welders and fabricators what's available after high school. Schuette is committed to educating the next generation.

Each year, the organization holds a welding competition for area high school students using virtual reality. The over 60 CWIMMA members contribute over $30,000 in scholarship and thousands of dollars of prizes awarded at the annual banquet.
