June 10, 2023

Cadrex has ranked second-top metal fabricator in The FABRICATOR's 2024 FAB 40 list, marking its second year as a significant player in the North American manufacturing industry.

Cadrex's rapid growth in the North American market began in 2022, following the strategic acquisition of 11 companies within a two-year span. In 2024, Cadrex expanded even further with a second facility in Monterrey, Mexico, bringing the Mexico manufacturing facility to an astounding 405,000 square feet of production space.

The FABRICATOR is North America’s leading magazine for the metal forming and fabricating sector. Each year, it ranks the top companies in the metal manufacturing industry based on financial performance, sustained growth, and commitment to innovation. This prestigious list has been published for over a decade, and this is the second edition featuring Cadrex.

“Cadrex's purpose is to build trusted partnerships with innovative companies, rapidly bringing their ideas from concept to scale. We are excited to be recognized again as the leader-at-scale across the markets we serve in North America" said Cadrex CEO Brian Steel. "2023 was a year focused on building the Cadrex foundation and platform. 2024's focus is on aligning and scaling the business, and we are seeing strong acceleration as we enter the second half of 2024 across several of our target markets.”
