We passed by Ameron Wind Tower Division on our way to deliver our trucks yesterday. On the way back to our hotel Joe slowly drove past the facility so I could take pictures.
The rolled steel pieces are trucked in as segments and stored until ready to be assembled.
Next the pieces are moved into a massive building and welded together.
When the welding is done the towers are then moved into a sandblasting facility on the property. There the surface rust and welding debris is cleaned off and made ready for painting.
A block fence and bushes were in the way obscuring the view of that building but we heard the roaring noise out to the street.
Painting is the final stage of constructing the towers.
Just thought you’d like to know this little bit of information.
On another tangent, across the highways we travel I see trucks with “Jesus Christ is Lord and not a swear word”. There are more than one I’ve seen. This company is based out of Fontana, California also.
And finally, wooden pallets by the stack. Shipping facilities, like a grocery warehouse, buy the pallets to stack goods on that will be sent out by truck to your local grocery store.
Industry of all kinds I saw yesterday while driving one street in Fontana, California.
Okay, I bet you’ve had enough for now. It is time to head back to Red Bluff and begin moving the Las Vegas trucks tomorrow. Enjoy your day.
