Precision fabrication for complex parts & assemblies.

Precision Custom Fabrication for Complex Parts & Assemblies

Vortex Fabrication works with some of the most demanding customers in the world.  In addition to welding, our precision fabrication capabilities include punching, shearing, sawing, bending, flame, plasma and water jet cutting. We also roll, notch, finish, assemble, and precision straighten.
 

Our Southern California facility is designed to accommodate large structures up to 100ft in length with the flexibility to locate tools and equipment throughout the building. Our extensive equipment list goes beyond the usual array of welding equipment, sanders, drills, mills and saws.
