Cadrex Manufacturing Solutions is on a mission to become the world’s largest mechanical solutions provider, and in just the past year it has taken North America by storm. The FABRICATOR, North America’s leading magazine for the metal forming and fabricating industry, highlighted Cadrex’s vigorous rise on the cover of its November 2022 publication. The featured article delves into the company’s recent acquisitions and explores how, by combining operations, Cadrex is setting itself apart from other mechanical solutions providers.
Cadrex purchased 10 manufacturing companies within 15 months, beginning with CGI Automated Manufacturing in August 2021. Now, Cadrex has more than 2,000 employees at 20 facilities strategically located across the United States and Mexico. Through this process of rapid acquisition, it created a workhorse of a company that unites the best brands in the manufacturing industry.
“The dominant three players in North America have yet to be established,” Cadrex CEO Brian Steel says in the article. “Cadrex saw this as an opportunity not just to be among the dominant three, but No. 1 in precision fabrication and mechanical solutions market in North America.”
