NO Defects Whatsoever: THE Central Goal of Production at “Metfab Metals” Too!
You most likely know Metfab Metals, LLC as the company that does small or large AESS jobs without peer1, with almost NO errors and delivers on time, every time, even at huge jobs like Hudson Yards2 . But this is not a coincidence, happenstance or just plain luck for our owner, Jim Murray. He directs us all here at Metfab Metals, LLC on our constant need to follow a program roughly akin to Six Sigma3 in scale to our size. Goal: NO production defects!
Let me tell you how we organize our staff and hold all managers, foremen and even welders to standards that far larger companies would be proud of. This is a very demanding standard for all, but very productive of our fine metal work. We operate under the proprietary program (in-house created largely by Ken Barthman, and constantly refined as we use it) we have dubbed:
This unique program uses the Excel format and inputs that info into Google spreadsheets stored in the cloud. All employees have access to their relevant sheets and enter data directly as processes are completed/revised/reviewed. This has allowed us to reduce and eliminate errors, delays, even costs dramatically. Come in and see what we can do with this for you. Or just come in and discuss how we have achieved these economies over recent years.
Simply common sense should drive a C.O.O. to require such steps! Our customers’ jobs that lack the lead time to order overseas, or the budget to do so or just discover essential last-minute “fill in” needs, made ACCURATELY & timely, drive us to implement these demanding steps & records. So we can service your REAL needs!
Or more simply, our customers drive us to get done quickly and spec-compliant the parts/assemblies needed (often even pleaded for by a faithful, but desperate, customer) NOW! We can always help any customer. Again, come in and look for yourself!!!! Look at the state-of-the-art Plasma Cutter we just acquired to service (in-house and immediately) an even broader scope of what you might need at the “last minute” ----or earlier. No mistakes with this computer driven beauty. We can truly “optimize” here too which saves $$$$$ for all of us.
[Look at this site/Newsletter next month for a full exposition on this new capability we now have and what else we can now do for you, even FASTER than before, with guaranteed certainty. ] As we have said before, NO metal fabricator has more expertise and more focused experience than Metfab Metals, LLC for all your needs. So much so that we at times even call ourselves not primarily a fabricator, but rather a service company that fabricates your needs to “service you better.” Our service not only means “we speed what you need” to your jobsite; it means we can improvise and implement whatever will make your job go smoother, faster and on-time.
Metfab Metals has decades of experience producing, to exacting specifications, all the various metal parts/assemblies needed for YOUR multi-faceted jobs which precision serves to make your jobs go smoothly from its earliest stages------------and end successfully! No order is too small; none too large; none too difficult; none too challenging. Call us; you’ll soon see we produce.
Our All-American service is as good as our metals!

3. Six Sigma is the accepted name for a program seeking zero tolerance quality in manufacturing. It seeks to improve the quality of the output of a process by identifying and removing the causes of defects and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. It uses a set of quality management methods, mainly empirical,statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization who are experts in these methods. (It…..) follows a defined sequence of steps and has specific value targets, for example: reduce process cycle time, reduce pollution, reduce costs, increase customer satisfaction, and increase profits. It seeks to improve the quality of the output of a process by identifying and removing the causes of defects……
