Northglenn-based Nationwide Fabrication, Inc. builds a lot of the stainless steel food service equipment you see at schools, universities and sports arenas around the country. In fact, the company is currently working on a new community eating center at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Putting tougher the serving counters takes a lot of work, but recently the company bought a new piece of equipment that makes it easier. They have the first machine in the state, which combines laser cutting with metal punching, which really speeds up the process.
"It helps our efficiencies by about 50 percent. So, not only does it allow us to do a better job, but it allows us to be more competitive in the market place, therefore allowing us to stay busy," the company's president, Adam Martinez said.
He says the new machine combined with the diversity of the projects the company has worked on has kept the company growing, despite the economy.
Nationwide Fabrication, Inc. started in 1996 with only two employees. Now the company has 50 employees and is located in a 50,000 square foot facility.
