Stud Welding Services

Work with the premier stud welding company in the Southeast

Don’t trust your project to just anyone. Discover the difference that years of experience, attention to detail, and commitment to excellence can make.


With numerous years under our belt, we offer a mix of stud welding services to clients across the nation which include job site stud welding and stud welder rental.

Elrod Stud Welding began out of Eric Elrod’s garage in Lebanon, TN, and has grown into the premier job site stud welding company in the Southeast and beyond. As the owner of Stud Welding & Fasteners, Inc., there was an obvious demand for jobsite stud welding.


In 2008, Elrod purchased an old genset and stud welder from an erector out of California and hit the road.


Elrod quickly developed a reputation for his willingness to go above and beyond for his customers and being accountable for his work.


He coined our motto, “Our Word is as Strong as our Weld!”, because of his dedication to his work and sincere concern for his reputation.

You'll go a long way if your customers see that you give a damn.

- Eric Elrod

After shooting millions of studs in the field, Eric Elrod now trains his crews to do it like he did.  With 5 Tru-Weld Dual Gun Gensets run out of an 8,300 sq ft headquarters, we have the capacity to handle multiple jobs at once.


Elrod Stud Welding has come a long way, all thanks to our loyal customers.


Our crews are told that to be the best, you have to act like it. We are proud to be the best at the most physically demanding job on any commercial construction site.
