34 years ago, Dan Schmitd open the doors to what you know as Welding Unlimited here in Franklin. I have the pleasure of introducing you to Prather Metalworks. As we pick up where Welding Unlimited left off, we want to continue to serve you and any of your needs for:

Ornamental Iron

For your home or commercial projects—custom-made iron handrails for stairs, balconies and porches. Built for comfort and safety. Designed to last for generations.

Custom Metal Fabrication Beam - Prather Metalworks
Structural Steel

Fabrication and Installation (and sometimes repair) of structural columns, beams, brackets, flitch plates, stairs, bollards—we’ve got you (and your project) covered.

Heavy Equipment Welding in Franklin, TN
Welding & Repair

Heavy equipment and trailer repair—decades of experience ensures safe, quality repairs for the longevity of your equipment—skid-steer attachments, dump truck beds.

Custom Welding and Steel

Our core capabilities overlap and extend into additional areas such as commercial and residential gates, trailer repair, bus and truck hitches and custom fabrication.

Cylinder gas and supply needs will be handled by our sister company Franklin Gas + Supply.

We’re all at the same location (120 Confederate Drive) and you’ll see many familiar faces as well as a few new ones. Come see us.

We look forward to serving you.
