Industrial & Marine Riveting

industrial and marine riveting and quality assurance

JAG Industrial and Marine Services offers our customers over 120 years of combined industrial and marine riveting experience/expertise. We have worked everywhere from the Panama Canal in Central America to the extreme cold of Temiscaming, Quebec Canada. Our men have experience riveting pressure vessels, then hydro testing and sealing with no gasket material. We have also completed work on almost every remaining riveted hull currently sailing on the Great Lakes.

JAG has researched and developed an extensive QC manual on the riveting, process complete from removal process, repair, preparation, renewals, mechanical tightening & testing. We are confident there are no other companies that currently possess our level of expertise in field of riveting.
