Established in 1963, OTC Industrial Technologies is one of the largest industrial distributors & service providers in the United States. We're committed to seeing industrial operations advance through expert technical solutions & unmatched support using our years of experience.

When your business faces unique challenges, you need solutions engineered to meet your requirements. Off-the-shelf products may take you part of the way to a solution, providing some of the capability you need (with a few workarounds and process adjustments), but that’s not how you maximize efficiency.

OTC’s fabrication and made-to-order services provide customized solutions engineered to your needs and designed to your specifications. Not only does OTC provide the highest-quality materials and supplies, but we also have engineers on staff with dedicated custom fabrication shops with experience and expertise in providing tailored solutions for manufacturers. We work with you through the entire process to ensure your needs are met.

What Are Custom Fabrication Services? 

Custom fabrication services use a design from our engineers or in consultation with a supplier, to tailor a product or piece of equipment. Whether you need unique parts to supplement your production line or an attachment that can fit in a cramped area of your facility, custom fabrication can give you a solution.  

Custom fabrication can deliver what you need when you need equipment made to a unique specification.   

How Do OTC’s Custom Fabrication Services Benefit Manufacturers 

Finding the right solution is more than just creating a great design or making it work with what you have on hand. The best solutions come from great partnerships and leveraging the resources and expertise of industry leaders. That’s why manufacturers trust OTC’s custom services 

Here are a few reasons that our custom fabrication and made-to-order services are amazing for manufacturers: 

Custom Solutions Are Better for Your Needs 

Often, increasing the efficiency of your processes may require custom solutions. Our fabrication services combine your exact design specifications with our engineering and fabrication expertise and the highest-quality materials to create products built to last. Not only do these custom solutions save you money in the long run, but you also benefit from a partner dedicated to solving your business’s problems. 

Avoid Supply Chain Issues with Our Fast Response 

When your essential supplies are delayed or on backorder, your operation can grind to a halt. To strengthen your supply chain, you must diversify providers and find trusted suppliers to prioritize your business. That’s what OTC’s custom fabrication services can do for you. With a nationwide network of dedicated fabrication and assembly shops and a full-time team experienced in delivering products rapidly, we have the resources. With experience working with manufacturers under the tightest deadlines and on the most complex problems, we provide the shortest path to resolution.  

End-to-end Support from OTC 

As an end-to-end solution provider, we can match you with an engineer who can provide support for your design. We’ll review it with you, and even inspect your facility to make sure that the product delivered truly meets your needs. Do you need help with installation? We offer field service teams, installation, and even repair work. From the moment you send us your designs until the day that the product is safely installed in your facility, OTC works with you every step of the way. Even after you’ve received the product, our support team is always available to take additional orders or address any concerns you may have. 

Increased Efficiency with Fabrication Designed for Your Goals 

With custom products and equipment, your entire operation becomes more efficient. Implementing workarounds, or delivering products with subpar materials, can put your team and business at risk. Our custom fabrication services can be fine-tuned to meet your needs, whether it’s replacement parts or a new sub-assembly, don’t wait for a solution.
