Challenge the expected, Dream the unexpected: A mantra Chrima Metal Fabrication has adopted to describe their approach to offering manufacturing as a service.
Since 1960, Chrima has been providing custom steel components for various industrial applications in Southern, Ontario. In the early days, founder, Bill Christian, and his son, Dan Christian, brought craftmanship and high-quality components to manufacturers in the local area. Over the years, however, the business expanded rapidly by leveraging new technology throughout the business to offer better quality, faster turnaround, and exceptional customer service.
Today, Chrima utilizes a one-stop-shop approach to custom manufacturing and has found success in offering a large suite of capabilities to serve a diverse customer base. In their 65,000 square-foot facility, they offer sheet and tube processing, manual and robotic welding, precision machining, painting, and more. Their ability to serve many industries while still offering competitive lead times at competitive prices has been a critical element of their recipe for success.
Chrima defines their business not as a component manufacturer, but rather a manufacturing service provider. Over the past year, they have found ways to further support their customers with robust quality documentation and engineering design and support. By seeking to improve their services they are constantly searching for ways to challenge what’s expected of a contract manufacturer and seek to deliver value in unexpected ways.
