About American-3 Fab, Inc.
American-3 Fab, Inc. is an entrepreneurial success story in spite of the challenges they faced being a start-up company in 2008, during the worst economic downturn in recent years.
The state-of-the-art custom metal fabrication company was established in 2008 by a trio – Kevin Prien, Barry Bosman and Scott Bauer – who saw a need for a superior quality product, professional customer service and competitive pricing in the fabrication business. Three years later, the business employs more than 35 individuals from its 20,000 square-foot facility in east Green Bay. In 2015, the company employs more than 45 employees and changes to two owners, Kevin Prien and Barry Bosman.
As of December 2016, American-3 Fab, Inc. expanded their growth with a new, larger facility now located on Innovation Drive in De Pere. With this new adventure, American-3 Fab, Inc. expects to grow with new products and to expand their family of skilled, knowledgeable employees.
American-3 Fab, Inc. provides a comprehensive range of services from product design through building and assembly for the food and dairy, paper, marine, automotive, packaging equipment, manufacturing equipment and material handling industries. The company attributes its growth to the owners’ efforts exploring new market opportunities, cultivate existing relationships and the investment the company made in Amada’s manufacturing equipment and Job Boss MRP software. Prien and Bosman work diligently to build relationships as their reputation is critical in a market with strong competition. So when clients asked American-3 to consider expanding services into the installation services, the company did so because it was a natural expansion of its product and service offering. This has proven to be a successful growth area for the company.
The Job Boss MRP software has created automation in the ordering process and fully integrated the front office with the shop floor. Everything can be ordered on a just-in-time basis, work flow is easily managed and jobs can be tracked throughout the process.
The owners attribute the business’ success to a loyal client base, state of the art technology, and a dedicated team of employees.
