What to look for in a metal fabrication company
What to look for in a metal fabrication company
March 30, 2017

Metal fabrication products and services vary from one company to another. Some prioritize small businesses with more customization options while others prefer bulk production runs that achieve lower average costs. Some companies offer a complete range of services while others specialize in only one or two processes depending on their clientele. Before deciding on the steel supplier or partner for your project, you need to look at your options from different angles. Here are some important considerations:

  1. Capabilities

The major considerations here are a range of services offered, and the space within a fabrication facility. Is it big enough to cater for your business needs without creating unnecessary production blocks? What materials do they work with? You need to be sure that the kind of steel available matches your preferred size and thickness so that you don’t have to keep outsourcing raw materials. In some cases, your project might require one simple service, and at other times a vast array of concepts. If you need processes such as forming, cutting, welding, assembly, fastening, metal finishing, installation and multiple production runs, you need a provider who is capable of providing multiple services under one package.

  1.  Experience

In the manufacturing industry, you cannot run away from experience and succeed. Small mistakes by your steel supplier can be very costly. Never choose a company without running a review of their experience to get a gist of how they go through their process. Baseline Custom Fabricating boasts of over three solid decades of experience in the fabrication industry, giving us a vast collection of skills and talent.

  1. Customer service

It is through the customer service structure that your steel supplier understands your needs in order to meet them better. Companies that are not interested in building good customer service relationships may end up frustrating your projects through issues such as bad service, poor delivery, and project slow down. 

Customer service is hands down most important to me... I don't mind waiting for good work, as long as the company is upfront about it!
