Apache Grows In-House Quality & Compliance Services

Apache continues to grow quality and compliance offerings and has recently added in-house CWI (Certified Welding Inspector) services and a new secure TOP (Turn-over Packet) on-line library.

CWI is an AWS (American Welding Society) regulated inspection service that is now in-house and is often a requested certification for our Large ASME tank and small vessel products. Having the inspection in-house gives Apache more control over the manufacturing process and efficiencies since we can conduct inspections parallel with other quality and compliance activities.

Apache is soon to roll out an on-line password protected TOP document website. Customers will be able to set up a password and have access to all Apache TOP documents in their plant. The website is in its final testing phases and will be live soon!

Apache's Turn Over Packets may include: Certified Drawings and Calculations, Material Test Reports, Weld Procedures, Certificates and Reports for Testing and Process Performs, Welder Qualifications, Welder Traceability, Compliance Standards Certifications and Material Finishing Reports.


Spin the Wheel - Learn about our groups!


Apache Stainless has four different product groups, each specializing in working with stainless steel: Large ASME Tanks, Small / Portable Vessels, Contract Manufacturing and Mepaco - food processing equipment.

Our technicians and fabricators are versed in working across all product groups, which provides efficient production and creates a very skilled and knowledgeable production team. Apache's welders are ASME certified and newly hired welders are supported and trained to get their certification.

The Large ASME Tank group produces tanks in many industries using stainless and other high alloys. These tanks and vessels are constructed for fuel refineries, ethanol plants, chemical industries, food and beverage processing facilities, biotechnology companies, health and beauty plants and in water treatment facilities.

The Small/Portable Vessel group offers both a standard line and customized tanks and vessels, ranging from a few ounces to 100 gallons. These tanks and vessels serve industries that are highly regulated in terms of material, traceability, welds and governmental certifications.

The Contract Manufacturing group offers custom fabrication, assembly, gantry drilling, laser cutting, welding and metal finishing. Our in-house metal finishing includes pickle passivation and electropolishing. We can handle small parts and larger components, like our tanks, with the use of fixtures or double dipping techniques.

The Mepaco group offers a proprietary line of food processing equipment. With modifiable options, Mepaco's product line includes: cookers, mixers, blenders, augers, dumpers, sanitary conveyors and material handling systems.
