Custom Fabrication

The primary lifeblood of any printing company is, naturally just that – printing. But we recognize that not all the myriad parts and pieces that our customers require on a daily basis – or in specific projects, for specialized use, require printing, or at least not only.  But they do need to be made, and more often than not, made to order. The processes and equipment put in place and practice for the heart of our business, along with SP/Dow’s wealth of experience, knowledge and creative expertise, can also be applied to many different manufacturing disciplines – tailoring technology and a history of innovation to meet your custom fabrication needs. We are often asked if we can do something.  We prefer the amazement when they ask how we did it.

Here are some of the ways SPDow makes manufacturing and material conversion easy.
