In The News


MIG Construction Services LLC is a west Tennessee steel fabrication company that is certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and is a minority business enterprise. Since entering the industrial, commercial and medical construction markets in 2007, MIG Construction Services led by CEO Andre Gist has successfully completed projects ranging from large miscellaneous to heavy structural ones.

As an AISC-certified fabricator, MIG strives to provide steel fabrication solutions to the construction industry. On each project, MIG strives to become an integrated player in the success of a project by anticipating problems and coordinating solutions for the good of the entire project.

Fabricating steel for construction projects is a multifaceted activity that can involve multiple suppliers. In the case of a unique elliptical, tapered tower that will punctuate the Talley Student Center at North Carolina State University, complex roll-forming and machining of the steel that will encircle the tower required subcontracting those functions to specialists.

These specialists then returned the components to MIG Construction Services for assembly. After assembly in layers, one inside the other, the components are taken apart and match-marked for shipping to the applicator of the sophisticated paint finish, then shipped to a storage yard until final shipment to the construction site for installation.
