Our Company

Lew Larimer, the current owner of American Portable Welding, has 38 years of experience in the welding field. He started building baler equipment in 1970 at a local factory. At the time, Lew worked for a man who was to become his mentor, Jay Guhl, an inventor who had 62 patents in the U.S. Patent Books. With Jay, Lew learned to take machines apart and improve them when putting them back together, making them more efficient and better working.

Auto Cross Corvettes came next, which moved him up to road racing and building a B-Production Vette from the ground up. It was during this year, 1971, that Lew began welding at Sears Point and Laguna Seca on race weekends. He liked studying the weak structural links on parts so that he could eventually repair and strengthen them.
