BendTec is a steel fabrication business specializing in the fabrication of piping assemblies and the production of pipe bends for pipelines and steam electric power generating plants. BendTec is known internationally throughout the piping industry for its ability to bend large diameter pipe for these and other critical service applications. The curving of structural shapes for architectural applications is another of BendTec’s specialties. In addition to bending, BendTec also provides many other fabrication services such as engineering, nondestructive testing, welding, cutting, machining, heat treating, blasting, pickling, painting, and fusion bond epoxy coating. These additional services, which are necessary to complete many pipe bending projects, many times are sold separately from the bending service.
