By Fabricators, For Fabricators.
how it started
Established in 2022, built upon a foundation dating back to 1902.
The Progressive Fabricator (ProFab) Alliance was established in 2022, but has been built upon a foundation dating back to 1902. The ProFab Alliance was created out of an aspiration to help other owner-operators within the metal fabrication and machining industries grow their business, maximize their profits, and live a more balanced life. The largest holding of our parent company, NCI, is Nix Metals, a 5th generation family-owned and operated fabricator that has grown its business 100X in less than 20 years. It has been an INC 5000 fastest growing private companies in America for 7 consecutive years, and an Indiana’s Best Places to work for 3 of the last 5 years. Through 6 acquisitions and 4 start ups in the past 10 years, the leadership team at NCI have created proprietary business systems and processes that were developed through years of trial and error. In 2022, NCI launched ProFab Alliance to offer these systems, process, and shared management services to others in the metal fabrication and machining industry. Although the ProFab Alliance shares common ownership with Nix, our operations are run independently, with a dedicated leadership team and separate offices. You can ensure that your business will be handled with the professionalism and confidentiality that would be expected out of any professional consultant or service provider.
