Custom
Fabrication Shop in Portland, Oregon

At Rubber Resource, we have a long-standing reputation for crafting unique solutions tailored to our customers' needs. With expertise in customizing fabricated parts for various industries, we thrive on tackling unconventional projects.

For example, the task might call for something unusual, like an extra-long gasket or a custom foam packaging piece with intricate angles and cut-outs. In these situations, no machine or die can accommodate the job. That's when our skilled team at Rubber Resource creates a handcrafted solution, using appropriate materials and even laminating pieces together if needed.

What is the Role of Our Custom Fabrication Shop?

A custom fabrication shop is a specialized business where skilled tradespeople create one-of-a-kind products. It's often synonymous with precision machining, as the items produced are typically designed and built according to the customer's exact specifications. Shops like Rubber Resources combine traditional handcrafting methods and advanced machinery to create custom projects from various materials.

A custom fabrication project typically begins with a client's vision and an engineering department adding the design and dimensional aspects. The next steps include cutting, bending, shaping, and assembling the components. Our fabrication shop's experts work closely with clients to ensure the final product adheres to their design intent, specifications, schedule, and quality expectations.

The versatility of our custom fabrication shop enables us to produce a broad range of products serving various industries. Whether it's a custom-made piece of machinery for a manufacturing plant, architectural metalwork for a new building, or a one-off prototype for an innovative product, our shop brings ideas to life. Our flexibility and commitment to delivering high-quality products make us an invaluable resource for many businesses and individuals.
