Sheet Metal Fabrication and Framing Capabilities

Metal Fabrication Capabilities

Prescott Metal is a precision sheet metal and tubular frame fabricator that has been in business for more than 95 years. Located in Southern Maine, the company originally started as a blacksmith shop, supporting the needs of the local textile mills. Over the years, Prescott has invested in state of the art equipment, which allowed the company to become a precision fabrication shop. Many of the employees have in excess of 20 years worth of experience, which allows experience and innovative thinking to help our customers reduce the costs of their products.
"We are committed to continuous improvement within: The quality of our products, To better satisfy the needs and expectations of our customers, and To delivery defect free product, on time, every time."

Fabrication Programming

Our programming department is capable of programming customer parts within .005”. Our staff of Programmers/Engineers has over 60 years experience in the field of metal fabrications and over 30 years of combined experience programming parts for our customers’ needs. We currently use MetaCam to program our laser and punch. With our vast knowledge of sheet metal layout we can be very instrumental in helping to bring new products and ideas to life.

Engineering Metal Fabrication

What makes our engineers successful is having more than 60 years experience in the sheet metal world. We currently use Solid Works for sheet metal and frame layout, as well as BobCad-Cam which is used to program our CNC Machining Centers. We have both 2D and 3D capabilities and our team is primarily responsible for developing fabrication drawings for the shop floor, from a customer concept.
