I have been working for JEA at the Northside Generating Station for 11 years as a Mechanical Technician. When I was on my tools, we put together materials that had been Plasma Cut and rolled by Rubin Iron Works. I can say that it is a pleasure working with materials that fit together like a puzzle. I highly recommend them for all your fabrication needs.
