@runner101 - I am not sure about the large corporate setting, but the mention of jet parts and industrial equipment in the article made me think that large corporate businesses would be a work setting that a fabricator could be in.
But small companies such as the one I am a part of also have fabricators for the small line of equipment we make. I found when my company was looking for a fabricator that we could have hired a fabricator who was a part of small company to handle our business but I ended up going with a fabricator which was part of a larger company because 1)I saw their advertisement (it was on a billboard) and 2)this company could also store my product after being fabricated.
The storage was a big issue for us because it we have limited space as a small business but a rather large product.
I am not sure about their company's policy for health benefits.
