3 Considerations when Choosing a Metal Fabricating Company

Every metal fabrication company offers something different, so how do you choose the one that best suits your project needs? From pricing to quality and experience, here are three factors to consider when choosing a metal fabrication company for your next big project.

Choosing a metal fabrication company sounds easy enough, but there are a few things you should definitely take into consideration when choosing someone to take on your next project.

1. Experience.

A reputable custom metal fabrication company won’t hesitate to show you the credentials of its engineers, designers and fabricators. Not only do you need to know how long the company has been in the metal fabrication business, but you also want to know what types of projects they have done in the past. Manufacturing is an industry where experience matters so make sure you ask the right questions from references to how long they’ve been in business. 

Since 1947 – as we welcome the 3rd generation into our family business – many things have changed, but our mission statement – QUALITY AS A WAY OF LIFE- will always remain the same.

2. Equipment Capabilities

Does the metal fabrication shop have the right equipment for your individual needs? How advanced is the equipment? Good equipment is essential when it comes to the quality of the work you receive back. Find out what technologies and equipment are being used, the more advanced, the better the outcome.

Over the years additional capabilities were added including:


The addition of these capabilities transformed A-Wire Corporation to A-Wire & Tube Fabricating Corporation and now to AWC Industries. The evolution from decorative products such as brass scrolls for headboards, point of purchase displays, accessories for tractors and mowers to large size storage systems for electronic voting booths and including our powder coating facility gives AWC Industries a unique perspective.

3. Pricing

For any big project you will likely be receiving multiple quotes from fabricators in your area. Don’t always assume the cheaper the better, some metal fabrication companies use more advanced equipment and technology which result in higher pricing, some will have less experience and have lower pricing. Do a full scope of and take everything into consideration before making a decision based on price alone.
