About us

CED is a full service structural steel drafting company that can take your project from concept to reality. Whether the idea starts from a napkin or a project plan CED can take a portion of the project or take the entire project from start to finish. CED started in Dec. 2008, Billy Blake decided that he wanted to pursue the “American Dream” of owning a business. CED often donates funds & services to non-profit organizations that help with families struggling from addiction in our community.

CED has worked with design engineers to create custom drawings for sign structures, strain poles, centenary poles, transmission structures, and other custom designed structural steel elements in several different states. While working with these engineers has CED created hundreds of different designs for Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Florida, California, Rhode Island, and many more states to come.

CED has been creating shop drawings for structural steel applications since the start of business in 2008 and the owner has worked in the industry since 2004.

What our clients say

I have known Bill Blake, owner and founder of CED, since I took over managing the steel bridge railing product line in early 2012. He has proven to be a very capable detailer with a great attention to detail and a strong desire to meet the needs of his customers. His positive attitude makes him responsive to his customers and easy to work with.

I have worked with CED on over 100 projects of various sizes in the past three years and he has proven to be an accurate detailer. In the future, I will continue to use the excellent service supplied by CED. It is a great option if your company has any steel detailing work that needs to be completed in a timely manner.

Justin M. Kis, EIT Project Engineer I, D.S. Brown Company

The DS Brown Company has used CED as a regular outsource for steel detailing of bridge railings and expansion joints for a number of years. They have proven to be a dependable company that provides accurate on-time shop fabrication drawings customized to fit our needs.

I would not hesitate to use them again in the future.
