Make it and take it! Efficiency is the name of the game, and that’s why P1 Group invests in a 220,000 sq ft fabrication shop in Lawrence, KS. Fabrication gives P1 Group yet another edge in our diversified capabilities.
“The fabrication shop plays an integral role in the efficiency of certain jobs,” Vice President Paul Smith said. “Fabricating in our own controlled environment reduces labor cost, decreases installation time and ensures the highest level of quality assurance/quality control.”
Bottom line? Because of the fabrication shop, P1 Group can build it faster and customers get quality-ensured products at a lower price.
Housed within the Lawrence warehouse space are four fabrication shops and a separate tool shop that services all of P1 Group’s fabrication shops as well as all work in the field.
