Behind the Business
Established in 2017
After 10 years of being on the road chasing pipelines all over the country and into Canada, we decided to put roots down and focus our talents on providing outstanding craftsmanship to our local community. Could there be a better place to set up shot than the beautiful Carson Valley? One owner was born and raised here and the other is a transplant from Southern Illinois who takes as much pride in this town as those born and raised here. Quality above all else has always been our business and we are determined to keep it that way.
Born and raised in Gardnerville, Nate attended an automotive trade school after high school for chassis fabrication and high performance engines. He landed a career in the large diameter pipeline industry and continued that line of work for 10 years before deciding to start a business with his coworker Matt. Through Battle Born Welding, Nate and Matt are able to focus their talents creatively in a local, tight knit community they care about.
As a transplant from Southern Illinois, Matt has adopted the Carson Valley as his home. After a four year career as a hull technician with the United States Navy and a skill expanding career as an HVAC technician, he embarked on a ten year career in the pipeline industry with Nate. Matt has one of the most wide range skillsets in the company and takes a tremendous amount of pride in the quality he delivers.
Another Carson Valley native, Grant got his start in the automotive industry working for his father, where he developed a love for fabrication as he built his own rock crawler. At the shop next door, Matt and Nate quickly picked up on Grant's ability to learn, his attention to detail, and his work ethic and offered him an apprenticeship position. He promptly became a critical asset to the team and his skillset has expanded greatly in a short amount of time, bumping him to the next level of a full-time welder/fabricator.
