Founders Harry Heitkamp and Gene Niekamp incorporated Dynamic Weld in 1981. Their combined forty-five years of metal fabrication experience is what grew Dynamic Weld. The original operation was housed in a 1,200 square foot building where most of their business was provided by area farmers and local manufacturing companies.
Dynamic Weld grew to become a key supplier to global companies such as General Motors, Chrysler, Honda of America, and International Truck. In 1986, the Osgood cement tile factory was purchased and converted to a large weld shop. Dynamic Weld
quickly found a niche in the metal fabrication industry when Honda of America built its first facility in nearby Anna, Ohio. Dynamic Weld began creating prototypes, and mass-producing custom material handling and returnable shipping containers
for each of Honda’s plants. Dynamic Weld continued its growth and added global companies as well as many large tier 1 automotive suppliers.
In 1991, a 20,000 square foot building was constructed on-site to house the prefabrication and welding departments and the original tile plant building was converted to a paint and assembly area. This addition enabled the company to complete larger projects and shorten delivery lead times.
In 1997, the original tile plant building was demolished and a 20,000 square foot building was constructed in its place, complete with two enclosed loading docks and an electrostatic paint system.
In 2020, a local machine shop was purchased and its equipment and employees were moved into a new building addition.
Growth and expansion has been a consistent pattern for Dynamic Weld. They currently have 60,000 square feet under roof, and have plans for future growth with additional land ready for expansion.
