- designing products that our customers’ competitors can’t get, or copy, because they can’t match the services through another single contract manufacturing vendor,
- entering into long-term, exclusive, contracts,
- providing turn key design, heavy duty metal fabrication, and assembly services,
- providing improved products, or custom metal fabricated components, that are aesthetically superior and very cost effective,
- being located in the heart of United States providing unparalleled air, rail, water and highway access.
Advantage Fabricated Metals is able to fabricate wider, larger, and heavier custom components than virtually any custom metal fabricator in the U.S. Many times, this allows our customers to save both labor and material costs. We provide engineering solutions and can provide our customers with designs of multi-purpose parts, again lowering costs.
