We now have 37 manufacturing locations. 

Founded in 1988 at Lake Benton, MN by Rick Peterson, Rick’s Welding initially specialized in farm equipment repair and fabrication. Over the years our range of services expanded and in 1992 Rick fabricated the first commercial hydraulic door in Minnesota. Rick’s new one-piece hydraulic door design combined ease of use with low maintenance.

From 1988 to 2008 Rick’s Welding operated out of a small shop in the heart of our community. In 2008 we built a new shop about 1 mile east of town to expand our repair/fabrication service and PowerLift door production.

In 2008 Rick also founded PowerLift Door Consultants, Inc which would allow him to expand door production throughout the United States and Canada.

Today Rick’s Welding, Inc builds and installs PowerLift Hydraulic Doors in Western Minnesota, Northwest Iowa and the eastern half of South Dakota. Call us today to discuss how a PowerLift Door can enhance your new or existing building project.

Rick’s Welding, Inc still provides farm repair and fabrication service to communities surrounding Lake Benton, MN. We fabricate bale trailers, feed bunks and special projects for our customers. Contact us about any custom product that you would like manufactured locally by experienced professionals.



With fabrication and service centers across North America, our products, service and support are always close by. Choose a location that suits you.
