We’ve been around since 1963

Our fabrication shop has been around since 1963, originally known as the Union Fab & Machine Company. While we’ve recently rebranded the name of the shop to Lake Engineering and Fabrication, we still focus on providing our customers with the same quality and workmanship as the first day we opened our doors. Our capabilities range from fabricating thin gauge sheet stock to very heavy ½” or more plate. We also specialize in the fabrication of structural steel columns and beams. We have years of experience working with carbon and stainless steels, AR plate, and aluminum.

No job is too big or too small.
