If it’s made of metal and you’re looking for solutions, Foreman Fabricators is the one to call first. Repair It, Don’t Replace It, with Foreman Fabricators, Inc. Since 1959, Foreman has been known as a top quality metal fabricator specializing in stainless steel, aluminum, brass, steel, bronze, copper and more. Construction companies, contractors, window glaziers, architects and designers know Foreman well for their expertise in manufacturing a variety of architectural metal items including handrails, staircases, entryway canopies, gratings and more, plus brake metal cladding for elevators, windows, pillars and walls…the list goes on and on. But many companies, building owners and even residential customers also know Foreman as the one to call for replacement and repair of a wide variety of metal items.
A perfect example of how Foreman can help is their work with a company called Spider (aka “Spider Staging”), who in 1946 pioneered the powered suspended access business. Spider is an industry leader in manufacturing and renting high rise window washing/painting hoists and platforms, work cages, scaffolding, rigging equipment and a variety of related items that make it safer for workers to access tough to reach areas of industrial and commercial building sites, whether it be for construction or maintenance. Naturally, their equipment has to stand up to stringent OSHA regulations for durability and safety, and due to the nature of the use of their equipment, it takes a beating on a regular basis.
That’s where Foreman Fabricators comes in. Spider sells much of their equipment outright, but because their highly specialized equipment is costly and often only needed at a given site for relatively short periods, they also run a thriving rental business. Spider regularly sends damaged or worn equipment to Foreman for refurbishing and repair, which is a cost effective alternative to replacement of these expensive items. Sometimes it’s a broken weld or two, or a damaged section that needs repair or replacement, and sometimes an entire cage requires replacement. Foreman’s skilled craftsmen have the expertise to handle such repairs, and their welding technicians are certified on steel, aluminum and stainless steel, an important part of OSHA requirements for working on safety equipment such as that provided by Spider. When an inspection of their equipment identifies any fault with their equipment, Spider knows that Foreman Fabricators has the expertise to do the job right and provide all the necessary documentation for their OSHA maintenance records.
As they do for companies like Spider Staging, Foreman has the expertise to match existing metal parts that have become worn or damaged, which helps customers reduce costs by repairing or replacing expensive metal parts instead of buying something new. They can also create specialized, one-of-a-kind parts and components to meet the specific needs of a customer. Foreman does a lot of work with facility owners and their maintenance departments to offer solutions such as customized door plates and corner guards, grate replacements, elevator cladding fixes or upgrades, railing and guardrail replacement and repair, and so on. They also work with a wide variety of companies to help them maintain expensive equipment that has metal parts prone to wear or damage.
