M & M Welding, located on 404 National Street in Decatur City, has provided welding and custom metal designs to the Decatur County area since the 1970’s.

Richard and Marlene Perry purchased the business in February of 2012 and since then the rumor is their business has been booming.

"There hasn’t been much time outside of the shop, I practically live here," Perry joked. "I work late nights since things have been extremely busy."

M & M Welding provides services such as welding, machinery repair, C & C Plasma cutting and steel sales.

One novelty item that M & M Welding provides its customers is the custom artwork their cut out plasma table can provide. Many customers have ordered yard signs, wall hangings and advertisement signs created from their plasma table.

When Perry happens to find time outside of work, he enjoys spending his free time with his wife of 33 years, his three children, Rachel, 32, Renee, 29 and Tyler, 27 and families.

One thing Perry wants to let his customers know is that he is here to help them however he can in any of their welding and repair needs. M & M Welding can customize almost anything you can imagine or design.

"It’s a place where farmers can get their machinery repaired so they can get back to work farming, planting and harvesting," Perry said. M & M Welding is known to help in many business and personal emergencies.

"I try to work with the customer and make things right and be sure to complete what they need done,"Perry said.

Perry and his wife acknowledge the importance of buying local and support their local hardware and parts stores, as well as many other businesses.

"The more there is close to home the better it is," Perry said.

M & M Welding is open Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturdays 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and closed Sundays. To contact M & M Welding call 641-446-4534 or email Richard at
