B&B Welding





After incorporating in 1964, B & B Welding Company, Inc. changed ownership on October 1, 1971, and began the transformation from a portable welding company to a structural steel fabricator/erector. In the ensuing years it has become the area’s most advanced steel fabricator. On the last day of its 50th year, September 30,2021, it took delivery of a new 12,000# capacity Combilift from Ireland to complement the current equipment for material handling. A lovely anniversary gift that the staff will enjoy for years to come.


These photos show two original McShane Foundry bells originally cast in 1902 and 1910. They measure 50” and 53” at their widest. They have a wonderfully resonate and long lasting-reverb.  The bells were purchased by Dennis McCartney and are proudly displayed in the front of our building and on the homepage of our website.

Henry McShane established the McShane Bell Foundry in Baltimore, Maryland at Holliday and Centre Streets in 1856. By the late 19th century, the business had produced tens of thousands of bells and chimes shipping them out to churches and public buildings and expanded to a large factory complex on Guilford Avenue. Over the past 150 years, the firm has produced over 300,000 bells for cathedrals, churches, municipal buildings and schools in communities around the world – including the 7,000-pound bell that hangs in the dome of Baltimore’s City Hall.

Christmas 2019 brought the latest CNC machine to complement the multiple CNC tool chest currently used by B&B Welding. With the only drawn-over-mandrel pipe bender in the area, the addition of our Transfluid brand machine enables us to make better quality handrails with lightning speed. Come visit us and watch a 21ft piece of straight pipe become a stair and landing rail within minutes before your eyes.


B&B Welding Company is proud to announce the arrival of its newest one-two punch, the Peddinghaus PCD 1100/3C high speed drill machine and the Meba DG-1250 miter saw.


The Peddinghaus PCD 1100/3C is capable of processing structural sections as a W44x230 wide flange beam and as small as a 3/4” x 2” flat bar and almost eveything in between. From beams, tubes and chanels to angles and flatstock, there is almost nothing that the PCD 1100/3C can’t handle. It utilizes state-of-the-art Siemens controls and 25HP Siemens motors to power three drill spindles. Each drill spindle has a tool changer associated with it that is capable of holding five different tools. These tools can include carbide drills, taps, countersinks, mills and a scribing tool. The PCD 1100/3C is also equipped with an underside scriber to allow for piece marking and layout on all surfaces of a shape.


The Meba DG-1250 Miter Saw is capable of performing straight cuts as well as miters up to plus or minus 60º off of 90º. It can handle sections as wide as 43” at 90º, 31” wide sections at plus or minus 45º and 21″ sections at plus or minus 30º. And being interconnected with the PCD 1100/3C, one operator is capable of running both machines with ease.


B&B Welding Company is excited to announce a fiery new addition to its fabrication team, the Peddinghaus ABCM 1250/3D Coping Machine.


The Peddinghaus ABCM 1250/3D Coping Machine uses three oxy-acetylene torches on three axes to process structural shapes. From beams and channels to angles and tubes, the ABCM 1250/3D is capable of doing them all. The ABCM 1250/3D can handle sections up to 50” wide, 24” high flange and a maximum thickness of 6” (web and/or flange). Some of the ABCM 1250/3D’s capabilities include standard block outs and flange thins to weld preps, mechanical openings, tee splitting and even castellations and haunches. It can even cut material to length, if required.

With the addition of the Peddinghaus ABCM 1250/3D, B&B Welding Company now has the ability to “cope” with most any structural burning need.
