The digital-first industrial contractor
A main focus at Turner today is digitizing the wealth of data generated by our employees and at our clients’ jobsites to make data-driven decisions that reduce costs, save time and improve safety metrics. Our ever evolving DECIDE WITH DATA® software and services portfolio offers a digital “toolbox” that can solve critical client productivity, reliability and safety issues. Here’s our portfolio and how it delivers solutions for every project we undertake.
Consisting of a suite of proprietary software modules and related services, MobilOps is an independently operated, Turner Industries-backed company designed to manage clients’ process safety management (PSM) and regulatory compliance as well as improve reliability.
This flagship project aims to reduce the administrative burden on Turner’s frontline supervisors by digitizing their work processes with the help of intrinsically safe tablets.
Proprietary Productivity Software
Leveraging our decades of in-the-field experience, Turner Industries' in-house developers have created a variety of proprietary software tools that we use to maximize efficiency and productivity at client sites across the country.
Rope Access Services
Our certified SPRAT (Society of Rope Access Technicians) technicians are capable of performing a variety of skilled crafts including pipefitting boilermaking, insulation, welding, and ironwork, as well as inspections and NDE—with the most advanced NDE equipment at their disposal.
Our inspection group utilizes unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, to perform high-risk aerial inspections and nondestructive examination in a time- and cost-efficient manner.
With TRAM® Solutions, TRAM® Software and TRAM® Services, Turner Industries has created a breakthrough proprietary process that identifies and quantifies cost risks associated with industrial projects & turnarounds.
Industrial innovation since day one
For over half a century, Turner Industries has built, maintained and provided an ever-expanding selection of contract services to the heavy industrial sector. We leverage this experience and expertise to accomplish one goal—providing one solution for our clients’ success.
