Where Creativity Becomes Reality
- Custom Design
Mike Bennet, the former owner of Central Machine Works, joined W2 Macfab in 2016 as the General Manager. Mike started working welding with his Father at CMW during summer breaks in High School. He continued to work there until he became the Manager and took over ownership in 1989. In 2016, Mike decided to sell the property and merge with Robert Keith and W2 MacFab and brought his team with him. Mike's talent exceeds his work in the shop; he is an artist and well known for his sculptures. He has collaborated on several Austin, Texas landmarks, such as the Bat at Barton Springs and South Congress.
Howard, as the Accounting Manager for W2 MacFab, bridges the gap between the classic style a shop like MacFab has operated under for more than 50 years to the modern day accounting software programs. He has worked with owner, Robert Keith, to develop a new software program for fabrication and manufacturing shops that utilizes new technology allowing the entire W2 team to watch each project live at any moment across the globe.
The W2 Macfab Shop Team consists of 16 machinists and welders that have been working for MacFab for over 12 years. They are creative and talented in working on projects that range from water tanks, NYC subway stations, to custom furniture. If you can dream it, they will figure out a way to fabricate it.
