Company History

Founded in 2014 as a family business by Carl and Nathan Uncapher, Patriot Steel
Fabrication has grown from a two man operation in a 3,200 SF shop to an 18 employee
operation in a company owned 60,000 SF fabrication facility. This exponential growth
was enable by a commitment to quality and customer service.

In the beginning, Carl owned a project estimating and management company called
Veteran Iron Works (VIW). For several years, Carl bid and managed projects and
subcontracted any required fabrication and installation to third parties. In early 2014, Carl
and Nathan realized they could join forces to achieve the mutual vision of striving to be
the most reliable steel fabricator in the industry. This dream led to the creation of Patriot
Steel Fabrication in March 2014.

After joining forces, Carl continued to bid and manage the projects from his home due to
the lack of office space for the new, young company. Nathan focused on searching for a
shop to operate, and fabrication began in July 2014. At the time, Nathan was the only
person in the 3,200 SF shop, with assistance from his uncle, Glenn Uncapher, on the
weekends. Within a few months and with what seemed like Providential guidance, they
were reunited with a former colleague, Rick Boothe. Rick came from a background of
more than 17 years of steel fabrication and installation experience, as well as, extensive
on-site construction experience. Rick was a Patriot from the beginning and has been an
integral part of this organization.

Since its inception, Patriot Steel Fabrication has grown to employ 18 loyal, quality
employees (aka Patriots). These “Patriots” are the key to the company’s success and to
that of its’ customers. In addition, in January 2017, PSFI also purchased a 60,000 SF
fabrication facility with over 50 offices, more than ample shop space, and stands at the
ready to meet its’ customer’s needs.

Patriot Steel Fabrication was built on the idea of supporting the customer at every stage
of the project, from bidding and identifying the proper scope, assisting in the design and
approval stage, ensuring approvals are expedited to meet schedules, to fabricating and
installing the steel within the allotted schedule. Our goal is to build lasting relationships
with our customers as a subcontractor they can rely on.
