Profile: Task Manufacturing
Located in Wyndmere, North Dakota, Task Manufacturing was founded in 2000 by Matt Thompson, who obtained his education in manufacturing engineering, and accrued years of experience as a welder, fabricator, machinist, mechanic, and engineer. Along with his extensive work experience, and education; Matt’s agricultural, industrial and motorsports background has been extremely helpful when helping clients.
Since the beginnings of its operations, Task Manufacturing has recruited and hired a highly-skilled team of welders certified in MIG, TIG, and PULSED MIG welding. All of their welding is performed to the highest standards for aluminum, steel, and stainless steel.
Because of their experienced staff and advanced manufacturing technologies, size and complexity are not limiting factors. They have done prototype and production machining, as well as fabrication and mechanical assembly for customers throughout the country.
Their plant has over 13,000 square feet, and includes specialized shop stations for fabrication, machining, and paint. They understand that welding is one piece of the manufacturing process, and have expanded their scalable plant to efficiently handle CNC machining, high definition plasma cutting, oxy fuel cutting, sawing, paint, and mechanical assembly activities.
