Unique Metal Fabrication with Innovation that Shines

At GSM Industrial, we welcome challenging one-of-a-kind projects. The reward comes from working with our customers to create custom, unique metal fabrication pieces.

Our team of incredibly talented craftsmen will shift their creative sides into high gear to design and build unique steel fabrications that are functional, beautiful—or both.

Delivering the WOW Factor with Unique Steel Fabrication

Innovative museum exhibits, architectural and decorative building accents, custom science-experiment equipment, fabrication of an artist’s rendering. There’s no limit to the unique metal fabrication projects we’ll take on. No job is too challenging, and we welcome the dirty, dangerous, difficult.

A Functional, Imaginative Cistern in Lancaster, PA

We acted as both fabricator and installation contractor for this unique metal fabrication project for the City of Lancaster at the Lancaster Brewing Company. It involved creating a piece of public artwork that would also serve as a 35-foot-tall, 750-gallon cistern to collect water runoff from the business’s roof.

The piece, designed by Austin & Mergold, LLC, is an urban-concept grain bin replica that calls to mind Lancaster-area agriculture and the beer brewed inside the building. This creation has become a cultural icon, an urban homage to an agricultural lifestyle, and a community-wide beacon for everyone who lives and visits Lancaster, PA—and we are proud to have been part of its fabrication and installation.

Our Tools Make Unique Metal Fabrication Projects Possible

With the right resources, tools, and mindset, there’s no limit to the amount of creativity and problem-solving we can put into your unique project. Take, for instance, this thoughtful application of our tabletop positioner:

At GSM Industrial, we usually use the rotating positioner for piping spools, vessels, and cylindrical weldments. But Andy, a 15-year GSM veteran, got the idea to orient the positioner on its side and use it to put a structural column in a horizontal position for welding. This way, he could weld all the gussets and base plates without using an overhead crane to flip the column and disperse heat while moving to the other side.

This example is just one more instance of our exceptional people creating exceptional results with the equipment we already own. This type of ingenuity is exactly what we’ll bring to your unique project. Let’s talk about how we can make it happen today!
