1983 - 1987 LJ Fabricators, Inc. opened in Rockford, Illinois during June of 1983 by Larry A. Johnson. He purchased a 6000 square foot building at the corner of Grable and Kishwakee Street. LJ Fabricators offered all the services from the traditional metal fabricating job shop which included shearing, punching, forming, sawing, rolling, spot welding and MIG / TIG welding.
1987 - 1995 The building was expanded to 11,200 sq ft in 1987 and in November of 1989 Larry recognized the need to expand the services provided at LJ Fabricators by purchasing a CO2 2-dimensional laser. This machine would cut up to .375" thick mild steel along with several other different types of exotic materials.
1995 - 2005 The variety of services was expanded again in June of 1992 by adding 3-dimensional laser cutting. Since 1992 LJ Fabricators has continued increasing capacities, which resulted in moving to a new facility in 1995 with over 39,000 sq ft.
2005 – present Not only do we focus on continually improving our quality system but our infrastructure improved in 2005 when we added over 19,000 sq ft of manufacturing space, 10 ton crane, and a new high speed laser with a material handling tower.
