Video:Rebuilding Ground Zero

The unveiling of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum (museum opens in 2012) at Ground Zero consists of a beautiful memorial park showcasing 152 bronze plates positioned around the memorial pools built in the footprints of Twin Towers. 

Service Metal Fabricating, a family business in Rockaway, NJ, was honored to be chosen as one of the fabricators for this precious memorial.  They were tasked with cutting all 2,982 names through inch thick bronze, each 10 feet by 5 feet, weighing a little more than 1,000 pounds. The goal was that individuals can physically touch each name of those lost at Ground Zero, at the Pentagon, on Flight 93 and also the six victims from the first World Trade Center bombing on Feb. 26, 1993.

We at WARDJet are honored to have played a small part in this memorial, supplying the waterjet used by Service Metal.
