Prior to my initial
meeting with Bexar County Welding, I had
reviewed the requirements needed for this (and future)
projects that RMC would need to provide the inspectors
should we be awarded a contract. This was going to be
"Mission Impossible." I met with Craig, he reviewed what was
required, what we had, toured the facility. As big as a
challenge as I felt that was ahead of us, Craig was as calm
and as cool as if we were discussing the weather. He
explained what had to happen, when it had to happen and who
had to do what and when. During this first meeting we
developed an outline, a time table and a procedure to do it.
Craig did something that I had never seen before or since.
Because this was Stainless Steel Welding, Craig asks to meet
the welding operators before they performed the welding
tests. When I ask why, Craig said he wanted to talk to them
about the test, maybe see a little bit of their ability. No
one ever wants to see an outsider walk into their shop and
start telling people how to do their job; I admit I was
nervous about this. I have never witnessed someone with
Craig's ability to instantly buy into his offer to help them
and to teach them new techniques. Within a three week
period, Craig had set-up the welding tests, witnessed each of the tests,
submitted the welding coupons to a testing facility for bend
tests and ultimate and presented a final package to me ,
which I presented to the agency for approval. Our Procedures
were approved without any re-write, omissions or additions
RMC was awarded the contract; actually there were four
different contracts Craig was hired as the CWI for the
project(s). Craig's knowledge, experience and attitude
towards his work and the people he's working for or with are
rare indeed. I am happy to recommend Bexar County Welding /
Craig Chuha for any structural steel or piping inspection or
welding, a finer man you will not find.

Craig has assisted Gregg Drilling and Testing, Inc. for the
last couple years on many fabrications projects, plus the
normal take apart, fix and rebuild projects. We have an
ongoing work load of rebuilding drill rigs and support
equipment as well as customization to meet specific
projects. His knowledge and insight was always important to
accomplishing the project.
This past year we custom built a mud system, rebuilt a
damaged drill, modified a drill to fit a floating barge and
a jack-up platform. The jack-up platform, known as Skate
III, was shipped by Seacore from England to Anchorage Alaska
and assembled with our drilling equipment very efficiently.
Bexar County Welding / Craig's assistance with the
commissioning of the Skate III made this effort flow
