Located in Attleboro Falls, Massachusetts, Metfab Engineering is a large full-service job shop that provides metal fabrication and machining services to businesses around the world.

Metfab Engineering can trace its roots back to a simple three-car garage and owner Edward Urquhart’s vision to build a business from the ground up. Thirty-five years after its humble beginning, the company occupies a 50,000 square foot manufacturing facility and employs 60 people.
The company’s success is highly attributed to Urquhart’s willingness to invest in his business. If he can buy a piece of equipment that makes the job easier and faster, then he buys it.
Seven years ago, Metfab did just that when they invested in a precision abrasive waterjet cutting system manufactured by Jet Edge of St. Michael, Minnesota. The company selected Jet Edge’s 6′ x 10′ High Rail Gantry System, which it powered with a 50-horsepower Jet Edge 55-50B intensifier pump rated for 60,000 psi. The system is controlled by Jet Edge’s AquaVision motion controller, which produces finished surfaces and cuts with consistent quality.
