Integrity Machining, makers of Kolstrand-branded marine deck equipment, has expanded its product line by acquiring the assets of J.K. Fabrication, putting the two Washington state-based marine deck equipment manufacturers under one roof.

A little over a year ago, Integrity Machining moved from its 5,000-square-foot shop in Seattle’s port neighborhood of Ballard. Forty-five minutes north on the freeway, the company also secured an ample 15,000-square-foot shop with an extra 15,000-square-foot yard in Marysville.

Brad Tibbs, the sales engineer for Integrity Machining, said the addition of J.K. Fabrication should boost production capacity considerably. Two J.K. fabricators who will be joining the crew in Marysville bring with them nearly 50 years of experience in the marine industry.
