Custom Metal Fabrication Solutions

Each industry depends on high-quality materials for reliable performance and longevity. We use the following materials in our fabrication processes:

  • Trailers Industry
    • High-Strength Steel: High-strength steel is made to withstand more kilopounds per square inch (ksi) than conventional steel, allowing for stronger and more lightweight parts.
    • A656 Grade 80: A656 grade 80 is a low-alloy steel known for its corrosion resistance and strength. It is ideal for trailer and truck parts requiring durability and longevity.
    • 100 ksi Min Yield: We use this high-strength steel for trailer and commercial truck parts. A high minimum yield strength offers higher tensile strength.
    • STRENX® Performance Steel (Domex®): This high-strength steel from SSAB provides lightweight strength that is ideal for trailers and commercial trucks.
    • Abrasion-Resistant (AR) Steel. Abrasion-resistant steel reduces wear of abrasion-prone parts like trailer end dump sides. This material delivers greater longevity for trailer and commercial truck parts.
    • HARDOX® Wearplate: This proprietary, high-strength steel from SSAB is abrasion-resistant and provides extended lifespan and high performance against wear.
  • Construction/Crane Industry

    Cranes and construction equipment depend on high-quality materials for reliable performance and longevity. We use the following materials in our fabrication processes:

    • High-Strength Steel. High-strength steels have a high kilopound per square inch (ksi) rating for better durability and longevity. Parts can also be thinner and lighter than conventional steel while offering the same or greater strength.
    • A656 Grade 80: This grade of steel offers high-strength and corrosion resistance. Crane booms and other construction equipment depend on this durable low-alloy steel.
    • 100 ksi Min Yield: This type of high-strength steel features 100 ksi minimum yield strength. It has high tensile strength, making it suitable for various construction and crane equipment.  
    • STRENX® Performance Steel (Domex®): This high-strength steel from SSAB offers exceptional structural strength and lightweight performance, making it a suitable option for construction and crane components.
    • Abrasion-Resistant (AR) Steel: Abrasion-resistant steel delivers longevity and resistance to abrasion and wear. This makes it an ideal material for paving and excavation equipment.
    • HARDOX® Wearplate: This abrasion-resistant steel from SSAB offers abrasion resistance, long lifespan, and excellent performance in wear-prone applications. 
  • Agriculture Industry

    At G.E. Mathis Company, our fabrication processes include high-performing materials such as:

    • High-strength steel: This material is lighter and thinner than conventional steel while providing equal or greater strength. In agricultural applications, it boosts efficiency, resulting in less frequent refuels and the ability to harvest more crops per acre in less time.
    • A656 grade 80: This durable, low-alloy steel provides high strength and corrosion resistance.
    • STRENX® Performance Steel (Domex®): Made by SSAB, this steel product offers an exceptional combination of strength and lightweight performance, making it ideal for agricultural equipment applications.
    • Abrasion-resistant steel: This durable material achieves superior longevity and resistance to wear and abrasion.
    • HARDOX®: Another type of steel from SSAB, this abrasion-resistant material performs well in challenging environments and has a long lifespan.
  • Mining Industry

    G.E. Mathis Company aims to supply products that meet the unique needs of mining operations and maintain compliance with all safety requirements. Some of our components are used to fabricate the following:

    • Conveyor belts: Hardox steel materials extend the service life of conveyor deflector plates and sidewalls.
    • Elevators: Reliable steel materials provide a stronger hold for elevators in deep mines with high lateral pressure.
    • Mine cars and cages: This equipment also requires durable aluminum and steel materials to provide a sufficient hold.
    • Drifts: Steel components provide added stability for drift mining operations.
    • Ore pass: The chutes in ore pass systems are often lined with shotcrete, steel, or concrete.
    • Skips: Most skips feature stainless steel or aluminum construction.
  • Energy Industry

    At G.E. Mathis Company, our expert team delivers fabricated products that meet the rigorous demands of various energy applications, including:

    • Power plants: Power plants require precise and durable fabricated components for power generation equipment such as pressure vessels. We provide high-quality fabricated parts for power plants that comply with strict industry standards.
    • Fuel extraction: Well sites and pipelines require high-quality fabricated metal parts for reliable extraction and transport of fuel. 
    • Refining: Refineries are exposed to corrosive elements, so it is important to have fabricated metal parts that can withstand these conditions. We offer various types and alloys of stainless steel to provide corrosion-resistant components for refining applications.
    • Distribution: The distribution of refined products requires corrosion-resistant, strong, and high-quality fabricated metal parts.
    • Oil and gas: Oil and gas applications such as extraction, storage, and transportation, require durable, wear-resistant components made from high-quality materials. We can fabricate various high-performance and heavy-duty structural components to suit these needs.
  • Defense Industry

    We understand the importance of reliable, precise, and high-quality metal fabrication of components for the defense industry. We use advanced technology in laser cutting, press-brake forming, and welding to fabricate products to some of the tightest tolerances in the industry using a variety of extremely durable materials.

    In our service to the defense industry, we have decades of experience working with different types and grades of metal, including carbon, stainless, aluminum, titanium, alloys, ballistic materials, ABS grades, high-strength, abrasion-resistant, and high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels. We are ISO 9001:2015 compliant with quality systems that adhere to MIL specifications.
