Investing in Customer Success Since 1940

Your products build the infrastructure around us, protect our troops, provide energy and move the world. Our job is to support you without fail.

Continuous Innovation

In 1940, John J. Ripich founded AT&F as a small steel solutions provider specializing in metal and welding fabrication. Four generations of family leadership has evolved into a modern global supplier to the world’s premier industrial companies. We meet the needs of our customers looking for anything from prototyping to completed parts, precision tolerances to massive equipment.

Our many decades of experience has led us to become a preferred supplier of:

  • Metal supply, fabrications and services that push the limits of thickness, scale and precision
  • Materials processing
  • Components for industrial, energy and defense industries, among others
  • Stainless steel and exotic alloy fabrication for corrosive environments
  • Metallic and composite armor technology

Our passion to drive innovation inspires our team to deliver best-in-class solutions and exceptional service to a wide range of heavy industrial manufacturers. Our focus on efficiency in manufacturing while maintaining specific, tight tolerances is key to our success and yours.
