Lara Robinson and John Sell

John Sell and Lara Robinson own and operate Apex Welding and Fabrication, a small business located minutes I-25 and Hwy 7 in Erie, Colorado.

With a rich and varied background in aerospace engineering, architectural woodworking, boat building, and real estate construction (just to name a few), John creates architectural metalwork and is able to fabricate and weld a variety of custom projects to suit the Residential and Commercial customer.

Lara brings a background in Project Management and an entrepreneurial flair to the team. And while she’s built the infrastructure of the business from the ground up, she can often be found in the shop working on fabrication. In her spare time she welds small sculptures that bring a spark of the unexpected to life.

When they’re not in the shop, John and Lara can be found exploring the mountains, camping or checking out art galleries in the small towns throughout Colorado and New Mexico. They are raising two incredible teenagers and a cat.
