Who We Are

In 2016 W. Soule will celebrate 70 years of unrivaled experience, dexterity and skill utilizing custom fabrication, process piping, commercial HVAC and millwright services.

What to Expect - Variety

You will work along side experienced teams and supervisors. The teams may vary, depending upon the work, and give you experience with a number of projects, clients, and W. Soule teams.
Eric, an intern from WMU, said it best, "The variety of work I did was the most useful part of my internship at W. Soule. I designed a piece, then searched for a hydraulic to fit it. I had to revise the design to fit what was available and learned to take parts into account in my design. You don't learn that in the classroom - and I have a better appreciation for procurement. Yesterday I met with a client in the food industry, today I'm talking to engineers for a furniture customer. It's never the same day twice."

Culture

With only the fifth generation of leadership in 70 years, W. Soule runs like a family business employing 65 staff in the offices and approximately 325 union craftsman in shops and the field.

Flexible hours to work around class and studying schedules.
