OMS Challenges the FAB40
On some level, competition drives us all.
My professional goals are driven by a desire to provide, accomplish and advance. Beating my twin brother in our annual 5k Showdown in June will be achievement, and for once, to hold the trophy.
Today, O’Neal Manufacturing Services is honored to be recognized as a leading metal fabricating company in “The FABRICATOR” magazine’s 2013 FAB40 results, an annual list of U.S. metal fabricating companies ranked by sales volume.
Our #2 FAB40 position is about accomplishment and acknowledgment.
Our parent company, O’Neal Industries, and sister company, O’Neal Steel, created the OMS division in 2010 to continue meeting customers' needs. A growing OEM customer base with 2nd and 3rd step processing requirements and a more transactional distribution environment offered a strong case for a new direction.
The process required dedication and commitment, especially for a few customers who endured bumps in the road with us. We realigned our services across 9 North American locations, acquired Iowa Laser Technology (who adds support in the midwest), moved key pieces of equipment to support geographical partnerships, and committed over $10MM in new equipment upgrades.
For OMS, our #2 FAB40 position is about acknowledging our partners, advocates, employees and shareholders - those who walked the walk with us. Without them, we couldn’t continue competing for more business. THANK YOU!
