President / Welding Consultant

Mike founded Mayes Testing Engineers, Inc. in 1991 because he had a new vision for the testing and inspection business. He saw the high turnover rate in the industry and wanted inspectors to be able to make a career out of their work. In response, Mike created a professionally managed firm with highly trained inspectors.

Today, Mike has over 30 years of materials testing experience and is recognized as an authority in welding, structural steel and nondestructive testing. He has been involved with numerous complex buildings and bridges in Washington, Oregon, California and Alaska. Mike is active on several AWS D1 Code committees and is a consultant to the Washington State DOT and Alaska DOT/PF for welding engineering and materials testing.
