Introduction

Recognising the challenges our customers face when validating, purchasing, coordinating, and managing off site fabrication and spare parts sourcing, Furnace Solutions have developed a service to streamline and eliminate these issues.

We have competent and site experienced personnel who intimately understand the frustrations incorrectly fabricated items can have on site when they are being installed. Significant delays can result from minor errors in fabricated items.

We understand that site based personnel have a full workload to deal with and do not always have the time available to deal with off-site fabricator technical queries, workshop quality checks, or simply following up on where the quote or part is.

What is Fabrication Broking?

Simply, Furnace Solutions will act on the behalf of our customers to source and manage the fabrication and spare part components required to be delivered to site.
