1. Architecture and Construction

Architecture and construction is a common industry where you may find custom metal fabrication in use.

A custom metal fabrication company can provide the hardware, tools and design pieces to fit your architecture and construction project. Products manufactured by P&D Metal Works that may fall into the construction industry include guardrails, fencing, security gates, railings, staircases and more.

OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) that include many automakers rely on custom manufactured parts that must be built to specific specifications and produced in large quantities – which is just one facet of the automotive industry.
