Originating as a concept in 1989, Anchor Fabrication began with the purchase of a modest 25,000-square-foot custom metal fabrication facility before operations officially commenced in January 1990. Those personnel selling Anchor Fabrication simultaneously worked in production using our original equipment: two 12-foot shears, a punch, track torch, roll and two 12-foot press brakes.
Throughout the remainder of the 90’s, we ambitiously expanded our enterprise. In 1994, we ordered the construction of a new 12,000 square foot facility specifically for laser operations. We expanded once again in 1998, constructing 25,000 and 28,000 square foot facilities for forming and cutting, respectively. We did not reach our current infrastructure until the mid 2000’s, when our industrial and precision divisions were completed in 2005.
Fast forward nearly three decades later, we’ve grown into one of the nation’s premier metal fabrication partners. With almost every major industry served and 1,000,000 square feet of space in more than six facilities (not to mention the addition of more than 20 pieces of state-of-the-art equipment), we now maintain capabilities to accommodate the most involved custom metal fabrication projects on the market today. In 2017, we debuted a 224,000 square foot welding, coating and assembly facility that took our custom sheet metal fabrication capabilties up a notch. The expansion significantly boosted our welding manufacturing capacity, allowing our company to go from 60 welding stations to 130 stations. We also added 27 overhead cranes with more than 10 tons of lifting capacity, granting us the capital equipment needed to manage multiple large-scale projects simultaneously. Post-expansion, we can now powder coat parts at a maximum of 10'x10'x24' long and 6000 lbs (while also achieving up to a 3,000 lb salt spray requirement).
We always welcome facility tours for current and prospective partners. We welcome you to visit and see for yourself how Anchor Fabrication makes it all happen. Contact us to learn more.
At Anchor Fabrication, the sheer size of our annual output competes with any metal fabrication conglomerate in the United States. 1 million parts, 1 million man hours and 1 million square feet of manufacturing space is a testament in itself to the scope of our manufacturing operations. Spread over six campuses in two states, our production capacity allows us to handle some of the largest metal fabrication projects in the industry.
