Stainless Fabrication, Inc.

Stain­less Fab­ri­ca­tion, Inc. (“SFI”) is EIC’s first acqui­si­tion based out of the United States, with its head office in Spring­field, Mis­souri, and has sales through­out the United States. SFI designs and man­u­fac­tures cus­tom stain­less steel tanks, ves­sels and pro­cess­ing equip­ment and ser­vices the health­care, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal, food, ethanol, dairy, bev­er­age, chem­i­cal and trans­porta­tion industries.

SFI pro­vides both in-​​house fab­ri­ca­tion and field fabrication/​erection ser­vices to cus­tomers such as Unilever, Xerox, Bayer, Novar­tis, Nes­tle, Phillip Mor­ris, Genen­tech, ADM, Cargill, Kraft Foods, Coca Cola and Bausch & Lomb. SFI has a diverse cus­tomer and indus­try base that requires the high­est in qual­ity and safety from SFI.

The in-​​house oper­a­tions of SFI are designed to accom­mo­date the fab­ri­ca­tion of tanks up to 60,000 gal­lons in size and pro­cess­ing equip­ment such as mix­ers, reac­tors and stor­age tanks. This can also include elec­trop­o­l­ish­ing ser­vices used for med­ical, semi­con­duc­tor and food pro­cess­ing equip­ment and is designed to brighten the metal; remove scratches and obstruc­tions, oxides and impu­ri­ties; reduce sur­face rough­ness and direc­tional lines; and increase cor­ro­sion and bac­te­ria resis­tance. This is obtained by cus­tomers who require extremely san­i­tary non-​​contamination con­di­tions for their man­u­fac­tur­ing applications.

The field fab­ri­ca­tion oper­a­tions pro­vide a unique approach to build­ing cus­tom stain­less steel tanks onsite and can fab­ri­cate tanks from 60,000 gal­lons to 600,000 gal­lons in vol­ume. Cranes are nor­mally unnec­es­sary since the tanks are erected in their final rest­ing place using jack­ing devices. Field crews work exclu­sively on field fab­ri­ca­tion projects and are trained exten­sively in this method of fabrication.

Both of these ser­vices con­tribute to approx­i­mately half of the oper­a­tional rev­enues of SFI.
