When Marilou Brunelle moved to Alberta in 2007, she immediately found a new passion when her long-time friend and now business partner Denis Fugere- started teaching her the art of welding. It didn’t take long for it to become a skill that then ignited into a passion, and within a few short years grew into something much bigger than she could have ever dreamed. After attending Red Deer College and working hard to become a proficient, bilingual female journeyman welder- MLB Welding Inc. was born. Marilou continued to master her craft for several years working as an independent welder, until 2016 when she brought on Denis as a business partner. They worked tirelessly as a team over the next 4 years to grow and expand the company and its services.
MLB Welding Inc. has done what we set out to do and has rapidly grown into a successful, well-respected welding, fabrication and construction company- with services offered throughout Alberta. Our specialty services include onsite installation, plant services & food processing, which also extend throughout the USA & Canada.
