On March 1, 2021, Kraatz Engineering, a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group, purchased C&V Welding, resulting in an extended network of engineering and construction services between the two companies.
C&V Welding will now be known as Kraatz Technical C&V Welding and will offer steel construction services in addition to Kraatz’s engineering services for the industrial, maritime, oil and gas, and mining industries.
Eugene Louw, Kraatz Engineering Managing Director in a statement this week said C&V Welding is a valuable addition to the O&L Group and the joining of their 19-strong workforce will advance the creation of a more comprehensive, integrated service offering for our clients and stakeholders.
“The interdependence within our new team will also lead to our employees gaining a greater skill set and expanded work opportunities,” Louw said.
Established in 1974, C&V Welding has completed several commercials, industrial and residential projects, from the construction of warehouse and roof structures to finer stainless-steel work including the fabrication of handrails and balustrades.
These capabilities in grand projects, as well as elaborate, small-scale construction, seek to enhance the expertise and market offerings of Kraatz Engineering.
