Marvels’ Portable Welding was founded in 1976 by Kenny Marvel. Kenny had been working for a local firm but all his work involved traveling several hours from home each day. One day, having grown weary of the long commutes came home and announced to his wife, Linda that he had quit his job and was going to go into business for himself welding and fabricating metal in his garage.Kenny and Linda had 3 young children at the time and Kenny had no work lined up. That was the beginning of Marvel’s Portable Welding.
A little over three decades of dedicated and oftentimes trying work later, Kenny’s team has grown ten-fold, with the convenience of portable welding trucks, a boom truck, numerous additions to his shop and support of his family. His oldest son Chad has been a huge asset to the business, managing the shop, expanding into hydraulic hoses and fitting, adding plastic welding to our services and was instrumental in the purchase of our 265 ton press brake.
