TAB Industries invests in new workstations

READING, Pa.—Metalworking manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC (TABIndustries.com) recently installed three new welding workstations, expanding its in-house capacity by more than 300 percent to meet “high levels of current demand” for its services, the company said in a release. The new equipment comprises one MIG and two TIG workstations with welding fixtures, modular tables, accessories, and storage racking, plus an electrostatic cleaning station for stainless steel.

TAB Industries’ welding department expansion represents an investment of nearly $40,00000, according to the release. It follows the company’s recent investment in a slate of new machinery and equipment to expand its in-house laser cutting and metal fabrication departments.

The latest investment in the company’s 44,000-square-foot manufacturing center in Reading is part of a multi-year plan to align the company’s range of in-house services with the needs of area businesses, while providing a positive environment for staff to grow and thrive, according to Tom Brizek, president.

“When we launched this initiative several years ago, we thought we were staying ahead of the changes in the economy,” Brizek said in the release. “But the lockdowns have accelerated the process, so we’ve had to accelerate our expansion timetable to keep up with demand.”

In addition to offering welding, TAB Industries offers laser cutting, metal fabrication, CNC and traditional machining, stamping, and deburring. The company also offers powder coating and a variety of engineering, finishing, assembly, packaging, and supply chain services.
