200,000 Square Feet of Facility Space Provides the Capacity Needed for Large Fabrications

Large scale fabrication work cannot be completed in a small facility. This concept may seem obvious, but to describe this in numbers, Custom Engineering has the floor space needed for your heavy duty fabrication jobs. With 200,000 square feet of available space at our Erie, PA headquarters, we have enormous capacity to take on large fabrication jobs.

Defining Heavy Duty: How Large Can Custom Engineering’s Fabrications Be?

While heavy duty may be a term with many definitions, we want to help define it in the context of our work. To Custom Engineering, heavy duty fabrications mean parts that can weigh up to 160,000 pounds, and which can be as large as 15’ x 50’ if machining work is required. When no machining is needed, we are capable of producing substantially larger fabrications.

Additionally, though we are sought out to produce these larger fabrications, we can also complete jobs such as the manufacturing of smaller base plates that weigh around 2,500 pounds and can be sized in the 4’ x 8’ range. Regardless of the size of the metal fabrication you need, we will produce it with exceptional quality if it is within the aforementioned size range.

Weldments From AWS Certified Welders Are One Specialty Offered by Custom Engineering

One reason we have become a trusted Pennsylvania metal fabricator is due to our ability to complete every aspect of the fabrication process in-house. This includes heavy duty weldments. Our AWS certified welders are practiced in adjoining parts securely to assemble large fabrications. If your fabrication project requires the assembly of a large weldment, Custom Engineering can get the job done in-house and with work completed by welders certified by the AWS.

Select a Fabrication Company with an ISO Certified QA Program

We have been able to develop and maintain our reputation for quality fabrication work in part by following a strict ISO 9001:2015 QA program. As an ISO certified metal fabricator, Custom Engineering has a logical and practicable method in place to guarantee our work meets your specifications. Our team is thoroughly experienced in following this ISO certified QA program, which is designed to help us meet the quality guarantees provided in your contract.
