THE COMPANY

Established in 1984, Vickers Metal Works, Inc. is located in Orlando, Florida and operates from a 12,000 square foot facility. Our Sheet Metal Shop is equipped with a wide range of machinery from old-time forming equipment to the latest CNC fabricating machines. We pride ourselves on maintaining a clean and well organized shop. This allows Vickers Metal Works to operate with the utmost efficiency, thereby providing our customers with a quick turnaround time and superior quality on each project. Small jobs can usually be done “same-day” and every effort is made to complete large projects according to the customer’s schedule.

Custom Sheet Metal FabricationVickers Metal Works CAD department can view and interpret most digital drawing formats. We use Auto-Cad and Auto-Sketch to edit and create simple 2D drawings. For realistic renderings, parts and assembly modeling we use SolidWorks 2014 to ensure our shop drawings will produce the desired result in metal. Combining over 30 years of experience with modern 3-dimensional computer modeling, allows us to design parts accurately and to anticipate possible problems that can be overcome before fabrication. Computer design also improves communication with our CNC machines for extremely accurate layout, cutting, punching, forming and assembly of parts.

CAD capability:
1. 2D Drawings in .DWG OR .DXF format
2. 3D part modeling in SolidWorks 2015

THE HISTORY

Vickers Metal Works

 

My father Tom and I started our business in 1984, after working together since 1975. Sue, who majored in Accounting, came on board to run our office. Building on the reputation that my father had established as being the top sheet metal mechanic in the area since 1946, our vision was to offer the finest quality sheet metal products and service in the Central Florida area. Our employees have taken on the same goals and continue to set the high standards that our customers expect and deserve.
