New York City
One World Trade Center (also known as Freedom Tower) is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City. Designed by David Childs of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, One World Trade Center is the tallest building in the United States, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and the seventh-tallest in the world.
Originally, the base was to be covered in decorative prismatic glass, but a simpler glass-and-steel façade was adopted when the prisms proved unworkable. The current base cladding consists of angled glass fins protruding from stainless steel panels, similar to those on 7 World Trade Center. Stainless Steel Services craftsmanship can be seen on the building’s exterior as well as the interior. The polished stainless construction components are a fundamentally integral and aesthetic asset of the historical city-centerpiece.
ITER TOKAMAK REACTOR
The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) is a large-scale scientific experiment in southern France, intended to prove the viability of fusion as an energy source, and to collect the data necessary for the design and subsequent operation of the first electricity-producing fusion power plant. A worldwide consortium is funding the 10-year, $250 billion project. We polished ½” 316L plate for the cooling water storage tanks, involving the highest level of quality assurance and documentation of any work we have ever done. SSS worked with our direct client Jos. Oat Corp. under the managing jurisdiction of Oak Ridge Laboratory. In the course of processing this material, and the intense scrutiny of all phases, SSS was honored to receive the International body’s recognition of “Outstanding Vendor” appearing in their international newsletter.
The Air Force Memorial
Recently erected and dedicated, the memorial is located on a promontory overlooking The Pentagon in our nation’s capital. Our company polished over 180 pieces of 3/4″ T316 L plates, 10 feet wide and up to 20 feet long for this memorial to aviation innovation and fallen members of this service branch. The 3 polished spires soar into the air up to 285 feet depicting the contrails of 3 jets ascending aloft at once.

National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore Labs
Our company polished tens of thousands of GUARANTEED pit and crevice-free 5/8″ T316 plate for the beam collection boxes for this product. The completed laser is far and away the largest in the world and can produce the temperature equal to that on the surface of the sun. Every plate was polished and shipped to the site without one rejection.
