OUR START

About Joining Technologies

The founder of Joining Technologies, Michael Francoeur, began the business with three things:


A vision. A machine. And a garage.

Francoeur’s entrepreneurial dream was to create a widely respected, well-organized and ultramodern workplace where individuals are motivated to learn and grow professionally. Joining Technologies began operating in 1992 as a provider of electron beam welding services under the name of Energy Beam Labs, Inc.


That vision became a reality and today…

The small business that began as our founder’s dream has thrived. Today, Joining Technologies is the benchmark by which most other precision welding companies in North America are measured. Now, in addition to precision laser welding technology, electron beam welding and gas tungsten arc welding, Joining Technologies’ specialties include full machining services and supply chain management.


People, technology, service ―
it’s Joining Technologies’ combination that will provide you with unsurpassed results.
