Fayette Fabrication designs, fabricates, and repairs skids, carts, and precision racks namely for the automotive industry. Their largest customer is an automotive manufacturer located in California, but they provide shipping racks across the USA. The company is rapidly growing and currently operates out of a 135,000 cubic foot facility in Fayette, Alabama.
Prior to partnering with Atlas, Fayette Fabrication was purchasing from another industrial gas supplier using high pressure cylinders for its welding applications.
“Atlas approached us 6 years ago and provided us with quantifiable information relevant to the benefits of bulk gases,” said Mark McClanahan, Owner of Fayette Fabrication. “Based on the information they provided us, we made the decision to transition to Atlas and utilize bulk gases in all our applications. That was one of the best decisions we have ever made!”
Bulk gas solutions, like the one we offered Fayette Fabrication, provide the customer with an uninterrupted supply of gas, onsite filling and cost savings as well as less deliveries. The gas products Fayette Fabrication needed for their applications included nitrogen, argon and carbon dioxide.
“We have a safer work environment and never have to worry about running out of gas, not to mention the cost savings have been outstanding,” McClanahan said.
In addition to an efficient gas supply solution, we also supply Fayette Fabrication with welding machines, plasma machines, consumables and PPE items.
“Our most recent investment is a new plasma table and Hypertherm XPR300,” McClanahan said. “Atlas helped us throughout that process and continues to provide valuable training on an ongoing basis.”
At Atlas, our mission is to provide customers with the best equipment and supplies to do their jobs better. We are proud of the solution we provided Fayette Fabrication and the partnership we have formed.
“We consider Atlas a true partner in our business and enjoy the relationships we have developed,” McClanahan said. “We rely on their expertise and value their opinion on how we can further improve our processes striving for continuous improvement. We look forward to continued growth and prosperity with Atlas by our side.”
