July of 2015 marks Placer Waterworks, Inc. 23rd year of serving the waterworks industry. Still family owned and operated, participating in California’s SBE format in a minority classification.
August 2015 began our 8th year in our own 3-1/2 acre facility. At this time we have over 40,000 square feet under roof, with one acre left to grow into.
It was always our plan to have our own powder coating and garnet blasting operation on site when designing our new home, so that we could control the quality of corrosion protection to our products. Because our products are primarily utilized by municipalities, we know and understand that they have a responsibility of providing the very best quality to the tax payers they serve. So focusing on the “coating” side of fabrication, we want you to know that we here at Placer Waterworks, Inc. have made it our goal to have the very first powder coating procedure to be recognized by the state of California Department of Water Resources (DWR). At this time, a defined procedure of process and chemistry giving 10 years of protection does not exist. We want this protection for UV’s so to have high gloss retention together with anti-graffiti qualities as well. This will complement our participation and concern to provide the best in products that include durability, functionality, longevity, and user friendly features all as a part of our products.
We are very proud to say that in the past 23 years we have contributed to a line of products that are standards specified in many counties, cities and municipalities all across northern and southern California. Primary contractors participating in the industry have come to know and count on those quality products and for us to assist in the submittal process prior to fabrication; confirming the details of miscellaneous metals fixtures. We illustrate our submittals using the AutoCAD and Inventor 2011 software. When we build from stainless steel, aluminum, and carbon steel we want our customers to know we can fabricate fixtures right down to the corrosion/ anti-graffiti coating needed.
“Proven through performance, qualified by consistence”, still remains our motto. With more and more engineering firms nationwide together with local county and city municipalities learning more about Placer Waterworks quality and dedication; to the industry is assuring a stronger foundation to our longevity
