Lectrus Corporation in Tea, South Dakota was recently certified by the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) for CSA Standard W47.1, “Certification of Companies for Fusion Welding of Steel”. The Division 2 certification scope includes structural bases, enclosures, handrail, stairs, and platforms for the Canadian market. Lectrus Project Manager Tim Wakefield stated, “Our team spent many hours preparing for the test and certification process. Each of their efforts has allowed Lectrus to be successful in gaining the CWB Certification.”
