Welcome to G.E. Mathis and our blog, the space where we plan to open a dialogue with you, our customers, and all those interested in the metal fabrication industry. We enjoy a rich history of quality, integrity, and craftsmanship that began with our great grandfather, a ‘tin knocker’ who opened a sheet metal fabrication shop here in Chicago at the turn of the 20th century. Dedication and hard work earned him a reputation for producing the highest quality fabrications, which, along with superior customer service, sowed the seeds for expansion. The shop went through a transition into the ventilation business, where continuously developing skills and technology led to jobs fabricating heavier steel plate components, which then further transitioned us into the multi-service contract manufacturer that we are today.
With the knowledge and skill passed through the hands of four generations, G.E. Mathis has become a nationwide supplier of long, intricate, and close tolerance fabrications. We operate a large, 135,000 sq. ft. facility housed in three separate buildings equipped with some of the largest and most versatile metal fabrication equipment available today, as well as 21 overhead bridge-type cranes for efficient material handling. Advanced production and control technologies allow us to deliver parts with the tightest tolerances in the industry, and our ISO 9001:2008 certified quality assurance program ensures product integrity and customer satisfaction.
Providing a full range of services including laser and plasma cutting and forming, plate shearing, and CNC punching, along with plate rolling, welding and metal finishing, we are excited about furthering our capabilities: we are supplementing our current equipment list with a new large press brake and a submerged arc and MIG welding system at the end of the summer. We hope you take advantage of our expanded offerings in the fall!
