Walt Watson first began working with steel as a union welder in 1969 in New York. His father and grandfather were both involved in the metal industry, so perhaps molten steel does run in Walt's veins. In 1980, Walt founded his own industrial sheet metal business in Corning, New York, specializing in custom fabrication work for Fortune 500 clients such as Ingersoll Rand, Corning Inc., Dupont, Philips Lighting, and The Metro Transit Authority (New York City).
