Often consumers don’t see what goes into creating all of the products they use and come into contact with every day. One of those processes inherent in manufacturing for centuries, is metal bending and metal forming. From the propellers on a boat or plane to the beams used to make buildings safe and sturdy, metal bending and forming literally supports the products and structures consumers center their lives around. That’s why Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company has made steps to offer state-of-the-art professional metal bending and metal forming for every market.
Jack Gilchrist, president of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company, says “For decades, we’ve helped customers from just about every industry” For example, Gilchrist says GMFCO may perform “metal forming and bending to reshape damaged aluminum bronze propeller blades on one day, and metal bending for a construction company the next.” He continues, “whether metal bending is going to keep things running or keep things safe, you have to know what you’re doing—and we do. And having a press brake with capacities up to 750 tons and 20 feet doesn’t hurt either”
Gilchrist explains that, when it comes to metal bending and metal forming, it’s important to remember that the foundation of a project is just as important as the finished product. “We won’t start the job until we are certain that we understand the customer’s needs and we are comfortable that we can fulfill those needs.”
