A Leader in Vessel Fabrication

GALLOP History

GALLOP began as a specialty welding shop – Landry Specialty Welding (LSW) - in the early 1960’s, and has left its mark on the Houston landscape and even in American history.  During the early days of Houston’s space program, LSW was contracted by NASA to produce numerous components, most notably the compressed air guns used to propel astronauts when outside of the space ship, and the shovels that were used on the first Moon walk.  If you’re old enough to remember Astroworld, you probably remember the lamp posts that provided lighting across the bridge to the park.  Those were all welded by LSW.  When you ride the train at the Houston Zoo, you will see the “Trojan Bear” that stands along the train track.  The steel structure of the bear was another LSW project.
