Before picking a 2022 metal fabrication company, check the following 3 criteria to ensure you’re going with a reputable and reliable company.

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. 

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.

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.
