Don Wilkins started Alexandria Pro-Fab in 1976 with a specialization in welding. He started the company with one used welding machine which was in the back of a rented shop in Alexandria. Since those early days, Alexandria Pro-Fab has enjoyed a consistent growth curve. As a result of this growth, Don moved the business to its current location in April of 1979. The move welcomed added services – milling and turning centers.
In the 1980s Don’s sons, Tom and Ed joined the business. Throughout the years new services have been offered and new equipment has been added; such as sawing, milling, open set- ups and lathing. Alexandria Pro-Fab has grown consistently from a small welding shop with a single used welder to a large facility specializing in CNC turning, milling and assembly operations; with 72 CNC milling and turning centers, 2 CNC grinders, 2 Wire EDM's, and a full complement of manual milling, turning and sawing equipment.
Since its inception in 1976, Alexandria Pro-Fab Co., Inc. has established a reputation for delivering machined products of the highest quality, in a timely manner. The continued focus of the company has been to invest in the most efficient manufacturing tools to produce close-tolerance, critical parts. Through constant dedication to improving the quality process, Alexandria Pro-Fab has become an industry leader. The belief that the job is never too good has led to a challenging work environment. Sales have been generated strictly by the reputation of quality and service.
Alexandria Pro-Fab has grown consistently over the years to a thriving work force of around 180 and 100,000 square feet of building space. Each person is highly skilled in their respective fields and trained to operate their machine at optimum levels of performance. Even though we are certified to the latest ISO 9001:2008 standard we are still pursuing an ambitious internal process improvement program. In parallel with this activity, management is dedicated to continuing the business growth experienced over the last 40 years.
