Undeniable Experience

Continuing a legacy of excellence

Lafarge & Egge acquired Clackamas Welding in 2012 to add Nadcap fusion welding as a capability. But it was much more than a simple add-on. In operation for over 35 years, Clackamas Welding’s significant experience in the the defense, tool & die repair, semiconductor, and medical industries worked to broaden L&E’s manufacturing footprint.

Clackamas is known as the go-to shop for micro welding, TIG welding, laser beam welding (LBW), fusion welding, tool and die repair, and torch brazing projects. Clackamas Welding’s precision laser welder has also allowed them to expand beyond orbital and hand welding services as Clackamas continues its legacy as one of the few precision welding operations in the Pacific Northwest.

Lafarge & Egge’s premier welding division maintains AS9100 D/ISO 9001 as well as D1-4426 Boeing Special Process Approval, Nadcap fusion welding, and torch brazing special processes approvals.

As micro welders, we have a deep understanding of the thermal impact of welding on the assortment of alloys we process. This knowledge enables us to strategically implement tooling and optimize processeseven in hard-to-reach ribs and groovesto best manage distortion and achieve tight tolerances.

Our certified welding team’s broad expertise, in conjunction with our rigorous quality assurance program, ensures consistent precision welds and has won us the enduring trust of our loyal customer base.
