Koch Metal Works (Koch Stainless Products) started operations in 1970 with a small shop located near the corner of Logan and Quelch in Northwest Winnipeg. The company specialized in stainless steel and manufactured a wide variety of restaurant equipment. Increasing production made moving to a larger plant necessary in 1978 when a new shop was constructed at the present location on Jarvis Ave. Subsequent additions in 1986, 1996 and 2013, and the purchase of adjacent buildings in 2001, 2008, 2011 and 2012 have expanded the shop to its present size. The focus of the company has changed over the years from restaurant equipment sales and service to a wider variety of custom and production metal fabrication in all types of metals. This has prompted us to change our name to Koch Metal Works, as we do a lot more than just stainless steel. The addition of new leading edge shop equipment to meet changing capabilities, has left Koch Metal Works in a position to provide the services of both custom and production run capacity and direct OEM supply chain. Koch has a well-developed Quality Management System currently in place. All of our inspectors use uniPoint quality software deployed on tablets for mobile use. Because we have such a strong commitment to quality, we are undergoing steps to become ISO 9001:2008 certified. Koch is also very committed to the health and safety of its employees and job sites. We utilize a web-based safety system called mySafetyAssistant and use 1LifeWorkplace Safety and Health consultants to make sure we are meeting and exceeding all health and safety requirements. Koch is registered with COR and will achieve full certification during the summer of 2015.
