Company Information
Quick Overview

Since 1957, contractors on commercial projects have relied on Timberweld’s precision shop drawings, experienced craftsmen, and quality laminated timber beams, arches, and trusses for their many projects.

Successful repeat contractor customers account for over 80% of Timberweld’s business with special appreciation for the quality of precision shop drawings and fabrication by Timberweld craftsmen. We manufacture Douglas Fir and Alaska Yellow Cedar beams, arches, and trusses that are usually shipped direct to jobsites with connecting hardware, and T & G deck.

Manufacturing, scheduling, and trucking are located in Columbus, Montana on Highway I-90 where the Stillwater River joins the Yellowstone River. The Sales office in Billings, Montana is staffed by Graduate and Professional Engineers that prepare estimates, manage projects, provide preliminary budget assistance, prepare shop drawings, and work as a team member with architects and contractors.

Timberweld History

In 1953, Timberweld was started from an idea to build laminated Douglas Fir radial beams for farm storage buildings. Since then, we have added to our plant space, purchased equipment, and expanded our structural detailing departments, so that we are one of the most complete and versatile laminators in the United States.

In 1956, we moved into our present location in Columbus, Montana, and in 1957 began our long association with the American Institute of Timber Construction (AITC) as an active member and began building beams for shopping centers, churches, and office buildings in Montana, the Dakotas and the Rocky Mountain areas.

Our production leadmen with over 30 years experience are skilled in precision fabrication and quality production and take pride in every job that they do.

We are dedicated to the many successful contractors, engineers, and architects, that rely on Timberweld’s precision shop drawings, fabrication, quality products, and our commitment to service for over 50 years.

The Timberweld staff, drivers, and craftsmen are committed to being a part of the construction team to make every project a success. We believe that a good relationship with designers and contractors is essential to happy customers and successful Contractors, Architects, and Engineers.
