As the 1970’s began, Norwalk, Ohio was home to a large number of growing manufacturing companies. Including those dedicated to construction, assembly, prefabricated concrete and automotive equipment, these local manufacturers all shared a common void. They needed a quality fabricator.
Fabriweld Corporation was founded in 1971 by David Price, a Norwalk native who demanded high quality welding and efficient procedures. The combination worked. Customers sought out Fabriweld for projects ranging from conveyors and machine guards to custom truck bumpers and hitches and repair work. Fabriweld began expanding quickly, hiring engineers designing the equipment and master craftsman in the shop manufacturing. Price oversaw both sides of the equation, combining a knack for knowing how to put things together with a skill which demanded quality, speed, and precision.
The customer base soon grew from Norwalk neighbors to companies across Ohio, including the pillars of the rust belt, Toledo and Cleveland. In the early eighties, Fabriweld began manufacturing larger, heavier machines. It would not be long before Fabriweld would double in size.
In 1989, Fabriweld divided the engineering wing of the company from the manufacturing, creating David Price Metal Services (DPMS). DPMS became the sole manufacturer of the custom machines Fabriweld designed.
In 1991, David Price’s son, Chris, joined the engineering staff. Notably, Chris added a software system which tracked employee production down to the minute. This continues to allow Fabriweld to quote with greater accuracy for our customers.
During the 1990’s, Fabriweld’s brand of industrial presses and production headliner equipment became known for durability and a serviceability which brought customers back for additional projects. But even more, the name Fabriweld became synonymous with quality.
Throughout the first decade of the new century, Fabriweld grew as a result of management determination to manufacture in the most efficient manner using the best tools, the highest capacity equipment, and the most skilled employees. When the world economy fell into recession towards the end of the decade, Fabriweld simply expanded its services, adapting to the changing culture of energy and found new customers in the field of alternative, renewable energy. Today, Fabriweld manufactures load centers for solar fields, electric car charging stations for hotel and restaurant applications, and towers for wind turbines. When the automotive industry recovered, Fabriweld found itself continuing to expand.
Fabriweld of Tennessee opened in the summer of 2012 to service the growing number of customers located in the southern United States.
In February of 2016, Fabriweld purchased the Pedestal Boom Systems division from Allied Construction, creating Allied Pedestal Boom Systems. Allied PBS continues to service the 1500 systems already in the field, as well as launching a new era of pedestal boom systems. Soon to follow, Fabriweld Corporation added an in-house powder coating service called Pinnacle Powder Coating. Then in 2018, The Bullet Bunker joined the network and manufactures and sells bullet containment systems.
