In 2014, Steve and Andrea Keenan opened Prairie Metalworks in their hometown of Springfield. In the beginning, they served the area farms and ranches where they would use their portable welding rig to perform maintenance, repairs and construction. Later that year they fulfilled a request from a friend to create a monument for his father who passed away and the word got around about the couple’s artistic skills. While they continue to perform the same duties for the farmers and ranchers, they also create cool custom and prefabricated pieces of metal artwork that all can enjoy.
