W2 MACFAB

WE CARE.

Craft is our top priority.  Every piece we make is carefully scrutinized to insure it meets the W2 standard.  Weather machining precision parts for the semiconductor industry or building a new set of tractor forks; we take pride in every job.

WE CREATE.

Having the capability to build everything allows us to build the things we like.  We are proud to offer our own in-house product line; including fire pits, planters, and fine furniture.  We also offer a full range of design services from concept development to completion.

WE DELIVER.

After 80 years in Austin, we’ve learned to deliver on time and on budget.  Our group of highly skilled craftsman have the collective knowledge to solve whatever obstacles you may face.  If it’s possible – we’ll find a way.

We deliver products and materials across Texas and as far as Dubai!
