All Metals Fabrication (AMF) came to life in 1994. The company’s founder, Mel Marker, had the courage to give it a try even when most of his peers told him to play it safe.
It was a great opportunity and experience, but it didn’t come easy.
Early challenges included trying to construct a new building and receive equipment all at the same time. The goal, of course, was to time everything just right so we could hire new workers, find work and get production rolling. Construction was delayed by weather and other unforeseen circumstances, so we were forced to take delivery on machines before we were completely ready. One morning, we arrived at work to sadly discover one of the overhead doors smashed in and several of our new welders—and even one truck—stolen. That was a dark day, followed by many long nights as we took turns sleeping in the building with cots, sleeping bags and one eye open waiting for more unwanted intruders.
AMF metal fabrication was a family business in every regard. We worked by day selling our custom metal fabrication services and then worked through the night, installing tile, baseboard and carpet in the unfinished offices.
We started to crawl, then walk and then, eventually, we sprinted forward, growing, learning, improving as we went.
So much has changed since the early days. Handwritten work orders have been replaced by bar-coded routers and ERP systems. PO #0001 has now grown to PO numbers that are approaching seven digits. Plate shears and hand plasmas have been replaced by high-speed fiber lasers, pre-programmed press brakes, sophisticated tube lasers and high-tech welding machines. Ten employees have grown into seventy-five employees—we even have a crack security system to keep thieves and villains off the premises!
We have industrial parts and architectural pieces in nearly every U.S. state including Alaska, Hawaii and New York.
These changes and AMF’s growth have been amazing, but, perhaps, more amazing is the fact that we are the same from the inside out. Our culture has stayed with us—we still bootstrap! We still fight like an underdog. We are still passionate about accomplishing the impossible, we still care about people and we still love our customers.
We are true to our roots. We have not forgotten who we are.
