About Us

AFAB is a family-owned custom sheet metal fabricator located in Indianapolis, Indiana. We provide the highest quality of fabricated metal items with the most superb service. AFAB’s employees and customers are like family too. We have expert sheet metal fabricators who will not let anything go out the door without insuring its excellent quality. We never miss a deadline for metal requirements, and we can even fabricate items that will be ready in minutes for those emergency situations. AFAB is non-union.

Applied Fabricators, Inc. (AFAB) was started in 1984 by current CFO Julie Reeve, and her late husband, Bob Reeve. Bob Reeve came from the sheet metal workers union apprenticeship program. AFAB’s idea started when Bob Reeve leased a small building and purchased a used hand brake and a slitter in 1984 to fabricate light sheet metal for some local commercial roofing contractors. Although still a small family business, AFAB has grown into a larger shop, with some excellent capabilities. Bob and Julie’s youngest son, Brandon Reeve, became majority owner and president in 2008. Then in 2014, Brandon Reeve purchased Julie’s shares of stock and became sole shareholder.

AFAB is an architectural sheet metal shop, mostly catering to the commercial glass and glazing, commercial roofing, and commercial cold storage construction industries. AFAB is a custom metal fabricator and does not stock any pre-fabricated items. All sheet metal fabrications are made to specification and per job. Most architectural metals require field dimension verifications, and almost every item is different in size, so AFAB only fabricates what is required by its customers. However, AFAB stocks a wide variety of materials for those field emergencies.

AFAB is strictly a fabrication shop, and does not install nor do take-offs for bids.

In early 2010 AFAB acquired Circle City Copperworks LLC. (CCC), and moved CCC and its employees into AFAB’s existing shop. CCC fabricates intricate copper items including copper sinks, copper range hoods, and copper countertops; as well many other custom hand-made copper products. With both companies under one roof, everyone is one “team” and all work together for each company. Visit CCC’s website at www.circlecitycopperworks.com.

“Give us a call or email us sometime to discuss your sheet metal needs, whether big or small. You will soon realize how superb we can be.”
