MBS has added an addition that abuts our last addition for the laser room.  This addition was completed in March of 2016 and is 3,000 square feet.  It has allowed MBS to move some machines around to free up more room on the shop floor for assembly projects, and also allowed MBS to purchase a few more machines to help increase production.  This new addition is used as a cell to run parts for big projects and houses:

  • 3 CNC Haas VF 3YT Vertical Mills
  • 2 CNC Haas ST30 Lathes
  • 1 CNC Haas VF 1YT Vertical Mill
  • 1 CNC Haas SL20 Lathe
  • 1 CNC Haas VF1 Vertical Mill
  • 1 EDM Max SD510
  • 1 Yougar EDM Drill
  • 1 CNC Bridgeport M2 Mill
  • 4 Welding booths
  • Black Hawk Industrial Vending Machine

We’ve opened a second location!

In September 2015, MBS fabrication purchased a second building located in Inman, South Carolina.  The building is 11,000 sq ft, and started production in May 2016.  The second location has helped to get more products out on time, and will be a valuable asset for MBS as it becomes more independent.
