About Us

Est. in 1966

Founded in 1966 by John Hallsten, Hallsten Corporation has established itself as the industry leading manufacturer of Environmental, Marine & Industrial products.

A History of structural Aluminum products

Hallsten Corporation has developed a full line of structural aluminum products. These products are based on a structural system that has evolved through our experience in the design and fabrication of metal structures. These various products are used in marine, industrial and environmental applications. The basis for the structural system is a unique set of interlocking aluminum components. The use of these components provides a structural system that is very versatile, can be used in a variety of structures and provides unmatched strength and durability.

in the 1970's

In the early 1970's Hallsten Corporation pioneered the use of aluminum components for the construction of structures to be used in a marine environment.

The extreme corrosion resistance of aluminum in combination with the inherent strength of aluminum extrusions provided the basis for a marine structural system that provided unmatched quality and value. These early structures were fully assembled with welded connections.

In the 1980's

Hallsten continued to refine the design of these structures and by the 1980's had eliminated the majority of the welds required to assemble the components.

The welded connections were replaced with details that included specialized adhesives as well as non-threaded mechanical connectors. Where welds were retained, the welds were designed to minimize the effect of fatigue induced in the heat affected areas. These welds were located in areas with minimal cyclical loading. Additionally, the remaining welded connections were designed with longer individual welds, which tend to be more fatigue resistant. The weldless design proved to be highly fatigue resistant as well as much more structurally efficient than a fully welded design due to the elimination of these heat affected areas and their corresponding allowable stress reductions.

The Hallsten Advantage

Today, Hallsten Corporation continues to provide quality design-build structures that guarantee performance and efficiency while being cost effective.

Our reputation for creating modular systems

Hallsten Corporation has established a reputation for our unique ability to create products that employ modular structural systems. These products allow Hallsten Corporation to engineer specific structures utilizing a family of predesigned components. The result is high performance, efficient structures at very competitive prices. Hallsten Corporation continues to provide design-build structures to a variety of industries.

In addition to covers for wastewater and water treatment plants, Hallsten Corporation provides aluminum and stainless steel structures for marine and industrial applications. Typical of these are marine access gangways, floating docks and structures, industrial mezzanines, stairways and man ways, conveyor crossovers and bridging structures as well as steel truss bridges for pedestrian and light vehicular use.
