Integrated Fabrication and Machine Inc. had its beginnings in 1979 when JEB Fabricating was started. In 1981 JEB moved its operations to 295 E. High Street in Sharpsville, PA. During the 1980’s the business expanded to over a million dollars in sales and 12 employees. In early 2000, Brent Ward and his wife, Diane, purchased the assets of JEB Fabricating to start Integrated.
Integrated is a Precision Fabricator that has evolved from a simple basic fabricating company to a full process manufacturing organization. State of the art CNC machining, fabricating and finishing processes were added throughout its development. Since its founding, Integrated has continued to build an excellent reputation for producing high quality, reliable, competitively priced fabrications for various segments of the Capital Goods Market.
Integrated has strategically expanded their customer base and enhanced their relationships with key customers in the Electrical Distribution Market. Integrated has evolved and has differentiated itself from typical fabricating or machine shops. Integrated has developed a vast amount of experience in producing machined fabrications out of specialty materials like Stainless steel, Copper, Aluminum and Titanium.
Integrated dramatically expanded its Sharpsville manufacturing facilities, capabilities and capacities. In 2006 Integrated acquired the adjoining property and a separate state of the art surface preparation and finishing facility was created, bringing Integrated’s total manufacturing square footage to 35,000. Fabrication capacities and capabilities were dramatically increased with heavy investment being made in additional equipment from welders through CNC Burning, CNC punching and CNC machining equipment. Along the way a complete upgrade of our original fabrication facility was also accomplished.
In April of 2014, Integrated determined that a dramatic change was necessary in order to allow the Company to continue its penetration into the North American Electrical Distribution Market. In July of 2014, Integrated acquired a 70,000 square foot plant, located south of Greenville, PA. The facility is in the Reynolds Industrial Development, just 11 miles north of our original Sharpsville location. The plant was originally constructed in 1996 with the addition of a second high bay in 2006. This facility was completely retooled over the next 14 months to give Integrated the physical room and improved process flow needed to facilitate its continued growth.
Two major building additions were constructed, bringing the total square footage of the new plant to over 74,000. Twelve new cranes and associated structures were designed and installed. This multimillion dollar project was completed in August of 2015.
Integrated has been blessed, making significant strides in building its business. Employment from the twelve original employees has been expanded to over 50.
