Robinson, Inc.:
Metal fabrication excellence

The roots of metal fabrication run deep in Robinson. It all began with Al Robinson’s vision in 1923 and carried on throughout the 20th century under the leadership of Al’s sons, Maurie and Tom. Playing an active role in northeast Wisconsin’s economy for a century, Robinson has earned a reputation as a trusted contract metal manufacturing partner for a wide range of customers.


Yesterday’s foundation
built today’s success.

Today, 100 years later, Robinson’s nearly 600 employees are highly experienced in single-source metal solutions, from engineering  to complete custom fabrication . We specialize in custom enclosures and fabrication,  and hold ISO and ASME certifications that ensure we will deliver the highest quality products. Our end-to-end solutions benefit customers in a wide range of industries .

Our team designs and fabricates American-made products from state-of-the art facilities in De Pere and Manitowoc, Wisconsin, that comprise 525,000 square feet of flexible manufacturing space.
