KSM Steel Fabricators

Bringing over 40 years of Steel Expertise

Originally established in 1977, KSM Stainless Steel Fabricators Ltd. started with only two employees specializing in custom stainless steel fabrication. Over the years more employees joined KSM and the company became well known for its consistent, quality craftsmanship.

In 1997 KSM acquired a neighbouring building and created its new laser division with the purchase of a Trumpf Laser. As the company continued to expand it outgrew its original Langley, BC location and in 2000 KSM moved down the street to a bigger location. In this new location KSM kept expanding and in April 2002 upgraded to the Trumpf Trumatic 3030. In August 2005 KSM added a secondary laser to its Laser division, a Trumpf Trumatic 2510.

In addition to our laser cut parts we also offer precision press brake forming. We have a 14 foot general purpose press brake, a 13-1/2 foot precision brake with 253 ton capacity and a 4 foot electric press brake with very high accuracy.

KSM fabricates custom designs on a JIT schedule and holds no stock of parts. We serve a wide variety of industries and are not limited to any type of work in particular.
