Welcome to Kern Steel Fabrication, Inc.

Kern Steel Fabrication, Inc. (KSF) is well known in the industry as a structural steel fabricator that consistently meets or exceeds contract requirements and client expectations. This directly reflects the diligence and attention to detail of everyone at KSF--from the president of the company to the dedicated sweeper who constantly sweeps the shop to provide a clean and safe work area.

Licensed by the State of California and the City of Los Angeles to fabricate structural steel and certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) for Steel Building Structures (STB) and Complex Protective Coating Systems and to ISO 9001:2008 standards, KSF stands out from others in this market.

Most clients are not aware that KSF is also a national leader in the design and construction of aircraft ground support maintenance platforms, work stands, and docking stations. Platforms have been designed and fabricated for everything from the Boeing 737 and 747 to all of the maintenance platforms required to complete isochronal maintenance for the Lockheed C-5. Current contracts include design, construction and installation of all maintenance platforms required to complete isochronal maintenance of the Lockheed C-130 and work platforms for performing wing maintenace of the C-5.  Kern Steel's aircraft ground support equipment can be found across the United States in places like Little Rock, Arkansas; Fort Worth, Texas; Martinsburg, West Virginia; Dover, Delaware; and Westover, Massachusetts.

Kern Steel is currently fabricating and installing the C-130 ISO Stands, of our own design, for the United States Air Force.  

Kern Steel was selected for this project through the Air Force's rigorous full four color source selection process. This selection process resulted in Kern Steel being selected as the Best Value and most technically competent contractor. The first stand was installed in Little Rock, Arkansas. The next four are currently being fabricated and will be installed by the third quarter of 2014 in Youngstown, Ohio, Cape Canaveral, Florida, Niagara Falls, New York and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
