Metal-Fab Inc. has completed a 37,000-square-foot addition to its Wichita, Kan., manufacturing facility.

The addition will house manufacturing and warehouse areas that will be needed to accommodate the addition and expansion of several product lines.

This is Metal-Fab’s third plant expansion within the past 10 years.

“While many manufacturers are struggling to maintain a steady supply stream, we are taking a proactive approach to the current market situation by introducing new product lines such as our new stainless steel flexible-chimney liner systems,” said Metal-Fab President Steve Hughbanks. “Some of our manufacturing departments have literally doubled, and that necessitates additional space and some serious investment in new plant equipment.”

In addition to the new stainless steel flexible liner, Metal-Fab has recently introduced direct vent and biomass vent, and expanded their lines of special gas vent, fire and ceiling radiation dampers, grilles and registers.

“We still see the future of the hearth and HVAC markets as growing and dynamic,” said Scott Schmelzer, Metal-Fab director of residential sales. “For years, we’ve made an investment to diversify our product offerings, yet keep our high level of engineering and quality intact. In fact, in recent years our Corr/Guard special gas vent and the continued growth of corrugated stainless steel tubing has allowed us to actively branch into the plumbing markets as well.”
