  IMC Fabrication Shop

High Quality Fabrication of Your Mechanical System Components

Our fabrication shop, located in Kosciusko, MS, provides high-quality fabrication services. The shop supports the construction activities of Ivey Mechanical by producing the component parts that make up our HVAC and plumbing systems.

Pipe Fabrication Shop

IMC Fabrication creates carbon steel and stainless steel pipes as well as welded and grooved pipe spools. We employ a team of 6 to 10 fabrication welders, and our shop is housed in a 2-bay, 24,000 SF facility with 3, 2-ton crane rail systems and 3.5 ton jib cranes. Roller beds are strategically placed for material and product handling.

Certifications and Accreditation

IMC Fabrication maintains the following stamps:

  • American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME): “S” and “U”
  • National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors (NBBI): “R” and “NB”

Pipe Fabrication Process

    • We receive detailed spool drawings from BIM coordination that include a spool isometric and a bill of materials (BOM)
    • Through coordination software or Pypeworks software, the cutting and burn information is loaded manually at the pipe cutting machine and the manager’s work station
    • Each fabricated spool is noted with the part number reflected on the installation drawing
    • All open ends are covered prior to shipping the fabricated spools
    • Finished fabricated spools are typically shipped on an open flatbed trailer, layered and strapped
