Giese can build just about any type of railing you can imagine.
If you have a railing project, ask how Giese can help.


When you think of manufacturing operations, railings are not usually the first things that come to mind. To be honest, it was not our first thought either. When we expanded our business in 1997 to include manufacturing procedures, we had no intention of producing railings. However, when the city of Dubuque began to remodel its riverfront, better known as America’s River Project, they wanted custom railings made. We got thinking to ourselves – we can do that. So we began experimenting and showed the city our design for their railings. They liked them so much that we were awarded the contract and the rest, as they say, is history.


Most customers do not enjoy a plain steel color for their railings. We understand that issue as well. If the customer wants their railings to have color, Giese brings them to a powder coater who paints them with the highest quality in mind. Powder coating occurs when the paint is applied electrostatically and then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin.” The main reason we get our railings painted using this procedure is because the paint creates a hard finish, which is tougher than any conventional paint. This paint is much more difficult to chip, which in return prevents rusting and still looks fantastic.

If you have a vision that involves railings, Giese Manufacturing can make that vision a reality. We do not shy away from projects others may call “impossible.” We embrace the challenges and feel they make us a better company. We look forward to working with you on your next railing project.

Our railings frame a spectacular view of the Mississippi River Bridge.
