SEASIDE What started in his mothers garage has now grown to a Seaside company proudly celebrating 30 years in business this month.
Sopko Welding, started by Joe Sopko, 54, in March 1981, had one shop truck and a few pieces of equipment when the company began welding on the North Coast.
Now, Sopko Welding includes Coast Crane Services, and has a fleet of trucks, a 10,000-square-foot shop and three cranes.
It doesnt feel like its been 30 years,?Sopko said. The community has been good at supporting us and I hope to be in business for another 30 years.
Sopko Welding is located on 24th Avenue in Seaside. For more information, visit www.sopkowelding.com
