This program focuses on cutting-edge fabrication applications and tours of MCAA member fabrication facilities. The 2014 conference will include facility tours of two large, full-service Washington, DC area companies. W E Bowers in Beltsville, MD has two adjacent fabrication facilities—one for copper and the other handles steel piping. A unique component of its tour will be 120 foot, multi-trade coordinated rack assemblies. Kirlin Mid-Atlantic in Rockville, MD boasts one of the largest fabrication capabilities of any contractor in the industry. Its manufacturing equipment and processes permit it to fabricate: steel, copper, glass pipe, valve assemblies, pipe specialties, and equipment hook-ups.
