A Tradition of Exceptional Service and Quality

historyStephen Fisher, Sr. senior began making fire escapes and ornamental iron railings in 1962 in his Rawlinsville two car garage.

He then began to make porches and steel beams.  Three years later, SS Fisher Welding Company was established and moved into a 3,000 square foot facility.

The business began growing rapidly in the early 1980s, then the company became a corporation known as SS Fisher Steel Corporation and expanded into a 22,000 square foot facility. This 22,000 square foot facility would become Steel Fab Enterprises home and would continue to house our everyday operations.

In the 80s, SS Fisher Steel Corporation became one of the largest steel fabricators and erectors in the tri-state area with over 160 employees. In 1987, a new 70,000 square foot automated fabrication facility was built for the SS Fisher Steel plant.

SS Fisher Steel remained in business until 1993 at which point Steve Fisher, Sr. sold it.

In 1987, Steve Fisher, Sr.’s four children Steve Fisher Jr., Kurt Fisher, Patti Reiter, and Tammy Alexander bought the old building to establish Steel Fab Enterprises, LLC.  They also  purchased the existing 22,000 square foot building and Steel Fab Enterprises, LLC was established as a miscellaneous metals contractor.  Steel Fab Enterprises has steadily grown to become one of the largest miscellaneous metals contractors in the central PA area. Steven Fisher, Sr. has retired, but the Fisher Family continues in the steel fabrication, erection and miscellaneous metals business – now for more than 50 years.

Along with quality service and products, variety has been the framework of our business history. This tradition is reflected in diverse projects throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware.
