PFI provides custom fabrication services focusing on single part and short-run production.  With over 60 years of experience, the company is able to give customers fabrication services including stainless steel fabrication, structural steel fabrication and sheet metal fabrication. The company’s stainless steel fabrication department is well versed in metric and U.S. standards and specifications, including U.S. military standards.

As Dave Latham, a Senior Project Engineer at Global Advanced Metals, stated to us:

“PFI has performed machined fabrication work for us for over fifteen years since I have been at GAM, and its predecessor, Cabot. The quality of their fabricated products has been impressive, timely and competitively priced. PFI is the “go to” fabricator for high-end projects with difficult specifications requiring unique solutions.”
