Team Kuhlman
Owner, Kevin Kuhlman, is a certified welder with over 25 years experience in welding and fabrication. He has built many barges including the three we operate. He is wonderful at helping to plan your next big project and getting you the right schematics!

Maria has been with us since December 2009. She is usually answering the phone setting up all services and keeping the guys busy. She also is in charge of selling new and used hoists, Give her a call with any hoist questions you have!

Derek started working part time throughout his high school years and joined the year round crew in May 2010. He helps around the shop in the off season and during the summer months can be found driving the barge on  Big Spirit Lake and helping out with service calls.

Jim joined us in January of 2014  helping out as a shop assistant. He is usually found on the saw prepping metal for fabrication or grinding. He is a very friendly man who has something to say to everyone he meets!

Austin helped out part time while he was in high school and came back to us the spring of 2015! He is a great welder and in the summer months can be found driving the barge on East Lake. He is a fun-spirited asset and we are happy he is so eager to help wherever he is needed. 

Dallas started back in September of 2017. He originally helped on the barges, but since the addition of our 3rd barge, he has been in charge of the satellite lakes we service! In the off-season he is a big asset in the shop, helping on the various welding jobs we do year round. 

Alec came to us in the spring of 2018 and is eager to help the guys where ever it is needed. He mimics a monkey and is great at helping throw on all the covers we service year round. 

Josh started spring of 2019 and during the warmer months is out on one of the barges helping with all the hoists. During the off season he helps out on all the shop projects.
