A Reputation for Doing Jobs Right
Quality Marine of Alaska (QMA) was established in 1994 and incorporated in 2000 by Dennis Butts, President and General Manager, and his wife, Theresa, CFO.
We started out as a very small welding and fabricating business in Seward, Alaska. As time went on, the business grew steadily and we became well respected all around the state.
We now have moved and operate a 4000 sq. ft. shop in Kodiak. Since 1999, Quality Marine has held an R-stamp for boiler and pressure vessel repair, which demonstrates not only the precision, quality, and reliability of our work, but also the thoroughness and reliability of our control programs.
Quality Marine is ideally situated to faithfully serve and support Alaska’s commercial fishing fleet, maritime, and petrochemical plant welding needs.
Quality Marine specializes in structural, piping, and custom welding, design, and fabrication of steel and all alloys. Our streamlined efficiency and totally mobile capabilities have enabled us to participate in many exciting projects around the state and at sea.
We have replaced 1000s of square feet of steel deck at dockside, emergency weld-repaired boilers on rigs in the Arctic Ocean, put rock-damaged hulls back in the water in record time, rebuilt exploded transmission/gear systems in days rather than weeks, and once weld-repaired an oil tanker’s engine on the high seas.
We wire and stick weld structural and custom steel and all alloys. Often we are able to save heavy-equipment parts with successful welding of cast iron and cast aluminum components. Our quality control program is available for inspected stainless, steel or aluminum projects.
Perhaps most importantly, our long-standing relationships with our employees as well as our suppliers provide our customers with continuity and stability not always found in Alaska.
