“Well done is better than well said.” This is Delta Owner Cody Odom’s quote to live by from founding father Benjamin Franklin. Tenacity and a willingness to say yes to almost any job is what has set Delta Machine & Ironworks apart from the competition for the past 40 years. As a result, Delta is celebrating several milestones in 2024. The company is having its best year in business, and as icing on the cake, received the “Safest 70 Award” from the state’s largest workers’ comp provider LWCC.

“One piece that has remained the same as the industry has gotten more complex and diverse is our hard work,” says Odom. “That seems to resonate with all of the folks we do business with. We want to thank our loyal customers for supporting us for the past 40 years.”

Delta started out as a machine shop in 1984 and transitioned into a fabrication company over the years as the need for smaller steel jobs grew. Today, Delta manufactures custom pipe supports, piping accessories and plate products from two shop and three office locations. No matter how large or small the job, Delta will find a way to get it done.

“We’ve had a lot of customers think a scope was too big for us, but so far we’ve been able to meet the challenge,” says Engineering Director Heidi Holmes. “We don’t like to send our customers somewhere else. We like to do it all, start to finish, so we can make sure that it’s done right.”

Clear communication, listening to customer needs, and being relentless on quality have made up Delta’s customer service mission from the start. “Whatever we say we’re going to do, we’re going to make it happen,” Heidi adds. “We keep our word. I think our customers find that’s a rare thing nowadays. Sometimes that means really late nights and a lot of weekends and pulling resources from one place or another to help out.”

While the company has grown, its core team of experienced fabricators and machinists has stayed the same. Customers know who they’re talking to when they call Delta and can look forward to being part of a team from the start to the finish of a project.

We aren’t going to let anyone work harder than us,” Cody says.
