CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — South Texas Aluminum Worx is open to pretty much fabricate and install all things aluminum.
The company, located at 10020 Compton Road in Flour Bluff, has been around for 19 years.
Owners Chris and Erica Russell and their staff have been working extra hard to service boats. They've been installing items from boarding ladders to T-tops.
They also service many of the Corpus Christi Fire Department rescue boats. The firefighters are very appreciative of the things they do for them
“They have done some repair work and modifications to improve it and to allow us to have our radios and communications and lights so they can properly work in the roughest of seas and conditions which we sometimes have to endure," said Jonathan Chisum, a firefighter II engineer.
Such work is a task that South Texas Aluminum Worx realizes is important to the safety of our community.
“We need to keep those guys on the water so they can do their job," Chris Russell said. "And to give back to those guys is an awesome feeling.”
Russell and his staff have big plans for all first-responders next month.
