A new approach to revitalize the Metal Services Industry

The ProFab Alliance Franchise concept was built upon the foundation of Nix, 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 Nix have created proprietary business systems and processes that were developed through years of trial and error. This system has been transformed into a playbook of success for small to medium size metal fabrication and machine shop franchise opportunities.

The ProFab Alliance is in the final stages of franchise development, with a target to take on this revolutionary concept in early 2024. This concept is drastically different from many of the consolidation strategies being executed right now by large investment firms. Our goal is to not only continue, but build upon the success and longevity of the thousands of family owned and operated shops. We are currently seeking current owner/operators of metal fabrication or machine shops that do not have a clear succession plan and want to ensure their culture and customer service remain at the highest level, as well as driven individuals that have the desire to own and operate their own shop.
