Putting a Face to a Name
Carl Peterson - Weld Shop

Carl Peterson Aquaneering WelderNine years ago when Carl Peterson began TIG welding stainless steel at Aquaneering, he may not have known just how important his contribution would be to medical research. Carl takes great pride in his work, and one of the most gratifying aspects of his job is that he is involved in the manufacture of a product that may someday help to cure diseases. 


  Made in America is what an employee like Carl is all about. All aquatics racks manufactured by Aquaneering are made in-house from U.S. fabricated T-316 high quality stainless steel. Aquaneering takes great pride in the fact that our racks and components are made in the USA. We also take great pride in employees like Carl, who contribute day in and day out to the fabrication of aquatic housing for medical research.
Aquaneering Gives to Foster Kids

This past Christmas, Aquaneering employees participated in Sleep Train’s Foster Kids Secret Santa Toy Drive, which provided over 40,000 holiday gifts for local foster children.
Thank you to everyone who donated toys to the foster children of San Diego! Imagine the delight of the children in foster care when they receive your gifts this Christmas! They were very appreciative when the gifts were delivered.

Not everyone can be a foster parent, but anyone can help a foster child.
