A Boilermaker is a true jack of all trades. They’re trained craft professionals who produce steel fabrications from plates and sections. The name originated from the repair and fabrication of boilers for ships and factories, but over the years this job has evolved to encompass all kinds of work associated with pressure vessels and boilers. These jobs range from repairing, re-piping, and re-tubing commercial steam and hot water boilers to assembly and rework of pressure heaters and pressure vessels.
