Songer Services Helps Preserve Historic Carrie Blast Furnace.

scroll down page

During the summer of 2017, Songer Services was contracted by the Rivers of Steel Heritage Corporation to safely remove and cap 75 feet of hot stove vent stack at the Carrie Blast Furnace in Rankin, PA just east of Pittsburgh.

The project was emblematic of Songer’s past – and future – within heavy industrial contracting. 

Company founder Paul Songer is a steel industry legend – diligently, quietly and humbly creating a 100% Union organization known nationally as an emergency outage and maintenance “go to” expert for blast furnace, pressure vessel, and coke oven repair or maintenance -- often at a moment’s notice to save as many critical turns as possible.

Our History Paves The Way For Our Future.

Songer Services has evolved beyond its impressive steel roots, now competing for – and completing – full-scale greenfield projects for a number of respected heavy industrial and manufacturing concerns nationwide.  

But we’ve never forgotten where we came from.  And continue to serve the global steel industry with gusto. Preserving the stack at Carrie Furnace was a job we were proud to be a part of; emblematic of who we are and what we stand for!

Industrial Contracting Brochure - Songer Services

You learn a few things when you’ve been developing your craft – and your company – for over 40 years.

You learn that relationship s drive good business. That hard work pays off. You learn promises, timelines and budgets really mean something. That loyalty and integrity are reflections of personal character rather than buzzwords.

Above all you learn that people are – and will always be – your number one asset and resource as a company. Paul Songer would prefer you judge him by the company he keeps.
