About Us

McMahan Industrial Services

McMahan Industrial Services was founded in June of 2017 by Ashley and Justin Kiger and is family-owned and operated out of Norwalk, Iowa.

Justin started his welding career over 10 years ago after attending Blong Tech trade school in Davenport, Iowa. After meeting Ashley, who is a saleswoman by trade, the two wanted a change of pace and moved to Charleston, South Carolina. There, Justin was trained and worked as an underwater diver from 2012-2015. After having two kids—Knox in 2013 followed by Eva in 2016—the Iowa natives decided it was time to head home to be closer to family.

After moving back to Iowa, Ashley and Justin’s entrepreneurial spirits became restless so they decided to open McMahan Industrial Services, LLC—using Ashley’s maiden name. Originally, operations started out of their Southside Des Moines home, but as business started to grow and they needed a larger space, they set their sights to Norwalk, Iowa.

We opened the shop in 2019 and it has been home base for storing equipment and materials as well as where custom fabrication projects take place. In order to keep up with demands on the road, we purchased a trailer in the summer of 2020 and custom fit our pipe fitting equipment to optimize the space. This allows us to be a fully mobile operation and make changes and handle situations in the field as they as come up.

McMahan is a full-service welding and mobile welding, custom fabrication, tank installation, millwright services, insulation, and pipe fitting company. From small repair jobs to larger installation projects, McMahan is equipped to handle your needs. We are locally owned and operated out of Norwalk, Iowa and serve the greater Des Moines, Sioux City, and Council Bluffs areas as well as parts of Omaha, Nebraska. Our team has the resources to travel to you and operate out of our mobile pipe fitting operation.
