Medford Fabrication: Operations and Products

Medford Fabrication offers a full range of manufacturing and support services, from initial design and engineering to assembly and shipping. Certified welders, modern shotblast and paint booths, testing facilities, CNC production equipment and more allow Medford Fabrication to meet your needs.
    As an established and experienced supplier to multinational original equipment manufacturers, Medford Fabrication is used to working closely with demanding customers to ensure top quality products dependably delivered at the lowest possible cost. As a long-time manufacturer of its own proprietary products, Medford Fabrication truly understands what it takes to compete in today’s global market. Backed by years of experience in custom fabrication and field erection, Medford Fabrication appreciates the importance of building in quality so that a product fits the first time.


Now doing business as Medford Fabrication, CSC, Inc. (DUNS 00-904-8463), was created from two operations, Medford Steel and Medford Blow Pipe. Both began in the mid-1940’s as separate companies. In 1961, these companies, along with four construction companies, merged into Concrete Steel Corporation. In 1972, the construction divisions were sold and the corporation changed its name to CSC, Inc. The independent steel fabrication subsidiary formed in 1969, Med-Fab, Inc., merged first with Medford Blow Pipe and later, in 1982, with CSC, Inc. Today, Medford Fabrication/CSC, Inc. is owned by the Thorndike family of southern Oregon. Annual sales range between 4 million and 10 million dollars.


Medford Fabrication offers a diverse range of metals fabrication, assembly, installation, and finishing services. From customized one-offs to repetitive production runs, we can plan, engineer, manufacture, test, and document your finished products. Whether you are in the conceptual stage or have complete manufacturing drawings, we have the resources and experience to turn your potential sales into quality, deliverable products.
