Fabricating Specialties, Ltd (FS) has provided the greater Houston and gulf coast area with quality products while maintaining an outstanding on-time delivery performance for over 23 years. FS manufactures a variety of fabricated and machined metal products. These include equipment for the refining, oilfield, industrial and petrochemical industries.
Fabricating Specialties, Ltd began business in 1993 in a 6,000 sq. ft. building.
In 1996, Fabricating Specialties, Ltd made the decision to incorporate. FS then moved to a new location on over 7.5 acres of land with a 30,000 sq. ft. production facility and over 9,000 sq. ft. of office space.
In 2009 total square footage increased to 50,000 via new construction.
In 2012, FS acquired the adjacent property and opened a second fabrication shop. This increased the production facility to over 70,000 sq. ft. on 12.5 acres.
From 2012-2015, three new machines were added that greatly enhanced the capabilities of the company. This included a Chevalier FVL-2000 vertical turning center with live tooling, Kinetic K5000XMC heavy duty drilling and cutting machine, and the Voortman robotic beam coping / plasma cutting system.
These new additions allowed FS to aggressively lower costs and improve schedules for our customers by replacing multiple set-ups and excessive man-hours. For additional information on these machine’s capabilities, please visit our capabilities page.
Today FS is continuing to grow. We are currently expanding our machine shop by over 10,000 sq. ft. and have acquired two machines in 2015 to increase our machining capabilities.
