Western Fabricating Co, Inc. was started in Franklin Park Illinois by the Schreiber / Hlavin Partnership in 1959. The company was a primary metal fabricator of weldments and sheet metal products for various industries in Chicago. The company evolved in the 1970’s beyond an industrial fabricator into both Industrial Fabricating and Architectural Metal Fabrications. Quickly Western Fabricating became the early innovator of concealed fastener systems for Column Covers and Beam Cladding Enclosures.
