Fab 40

We are pleased to be recognized by The Fabricator as one of the "Fab 40" - their list of the "the most aggressive and successful shops" in their readership. The magazine contacted 1,000 people in February and published the Fab 40 in June.

Dan Davis is the Editor-in-Chief of The Fabricator: “To our knowledge, no other magazine has attempted to put together such a list,” Davis said. “The FAB 40 not only gives the metal fabricating companies — those on the list and perhaps those wanting to be on it — a chance to see how they compare with other companies, but also provides a glimpse into where the industry is headed.”

The magazine cites several ways that these companies have handled the recent economic realities, including:
- investing in equipment
- strengthening relationships with current customers
- targeting new sales
- focusing internally to get rid of waste.

That sure sounds a lot like what we have been busy doing here at Laystrom!

Thanks to everyone at The Fabricator for this recognition - we will most assuredly plan on maintaining our position amongst the industry best year after year after year!
