If you’re not familiar with the term ‘metal fabrication’ then you might be more familiar with the term ‘fabricating the truth’. In essence it means bending the truth but it stems from the metal fabricator’s ability to take metal in one state whether it be a sheet, roll, or even a lump and turn it into another. When this happens it can have a huge positive impact on any business.
Just imagine for example your eye being caught by a cool metal sign hanging in the window of a new coffee shop in your area as you walk by. It incorporates the company logo in a striking, arty way that makes you want to walk inside. Like many others, you’re intrigued so you enter. When you walk in the cafe is awash with people and when you finally get the attention of the owner and mention the sign, he replies that it’s been a great topic of conversation since they opened. That’s the sort of impact a good metal fabricator plying their trade can have on a business.
Several miles away a factory needs a huge processing tank made from metal. The tank is being built to clean groundwater that’s been contaminated with benzene and a whole list of other chemicals. It’s needed to keep the local community’s water supply safe and as such the tank has to be able to run without interruption for many years. The custom finish on the tank is key to the success of the project and of course, it’s time sensitive. That’s a tall order right? Actually this is bread and butter stuff for an experienced metal fabrication company.
What about the small business with an attached warehouse that’s struggling to hold sufficient stock? The company need to bring in more stock to take their business to the next level but they can’t afford to buy or rent larger warehouse space to hold it. Instead they ask for a mezzanine floor to be built so that they can alleviate their storage problems. The company send in their specifications and within weeks the floor has been fabricated and installed giving the company the extra space they so desperately need.
The truth is that metal fabrication comes in many forms but whether it’s much needed bespoke machinery to carry out a specific task, a trendy sign, or simple joists and posts for the construction industry it’s easy to see how it can have a huge positive impact on a wide variety of industries.
