sheet metal work and welding

Lazzarino Machine Works owner Jesse Lazzarino tells us he added sheet metal equipment to his metal fabrication shop on Lee Road in Quincy. He now offers sheet metal, welding, plasma and metal fabrication services. Jesse opened his shop in 2011 after spending eight years with the Honda Racing Team, where he gained hands-on experience building motorcycles from scratch. Much of his work now, prior to adding the sheet metal equipment, has dealt with heavy equipment, including logging equipment.
