Entrepreneurial Spirit; Operational Excellence

Performance Welding was founded in 1995 by Kurt and Carmen Wollenberg. Kurt was a welder at Pierce and went out on his own, hung up a shingle, and started Performance Welding. Building a solid track record of delivering quality products on time, Kurt and Carmen grew the company rapidly over the next 15 years, taking Performance Welding from a “weld only” shop to a full service sheet metal manufacturer.

In September of 2012, the Wollenbergs sold Performance Welding to Alex and Holly Kowalski. Performance began its lean journey and began building a culture of continuous improvement. The company further refined its strategy and became a contract manufacturer of complete metal assemblies. The capabilities and equipment were expanded dramatically to include robotic welding for parts of all sizes, powder coating, and full value added assembly, including functional testing, serial number identification, and kitting.

In 2014, the company went through a rebranding effort to reflect the added capabilities and commitment to delivering high quality parts on time. We welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can bring additional value to your supply chain.
