For projects of every magnitude



Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company offers a wide range of metal bending services that give us the opportunity to regularly exceed our customers’ expectations. Whether you need simple aluminum channels or complex metal bending for a special project, we have built our reputation on our ability to complete the metal bending projects that many other fabricators shy away from.

No matter the complexity of your project, with metal bending from Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company you’re in good hands.

Bending the Line between Possible and Impossible

When a customer from the marine propulsion industry needed metal bending for a damaged propeller, other fabricators called the task “impossible”. Fortunately, our extensive capabilities and expertise were capable of proving otherwise. The same capabilities make GMFCO a resource of choice for customers across the country.

Regardless of your project’s complexity, GMFCO thrives on delivering results that help our customers succeed by offering extensive in-house capabilities and project support that keep you on time and under budget.

GMFCO has made a difference for projects of every size across the country. How can our metal bending services make a difference for yours?

Our Competitive Advantage

  • Superior Technical precision:Allows us to ensure accuracy when it comes to every customer specification.

  • Extensive Capabilities: With press brake capacities up to 750 tons and 20', GMFCO can bend, form, flatten, and straighten fabrications with the most demanding specifications.

  • Greater Flexibility for Greater Efficiency: With numerous machining and fabrication resources at our disposal, there are few limitations when it comes to creatively designing and manufacturing tooling solutions that allow for greater accuracy and productivity.

  • All In-House: For metal bending projects that require a variety of shapes and forms, our extensive in-house capabilities allow us to complete your project entirely under one-roof. Our in-house resources frequently benefit customer schedules and budgets.
