About KAD Industries

KAD Industries is co-owned by Doug Abbey and Gary Grincavitch. KAD’s roots date back to 1979, when it was primarily a machine shop. In 2003, sheet metal fabrication capabilities were added to the mix with the purchase of a local fabrication shop.

Because of the blend of in-house capabilities, KAD Industries serves a wide variety of clients, from the average Joe, looking for a simple knick-knack, to multi-million dollar companies looking to outsource their maintenance fabrication needs. Food service, industrial manufacturing, and local municipalities are just a few of the markets served by KAD.

KAD excels at all things metal. Our seasoned team of industry professionals is always ready for a new challenge. In house capabilities include shearing, bending, machining, welding, laser cutting, plasma cutting, rolling and more.

Areas of Expertise


Our people and equipment are here to do all things metal. Whether it be bending, rolling, shearing, forming, punching, nibbling, or custom duct work - KAD will get it done for you. Bending and shearing of sheets up to 10’ wide in 1/4” thickness. Rolling plate up to 5’ wide. We can also roll structural shapes in-house. We use highly advanced software for our layouts, and we can fabricate incredibly complex sheet metal parts with ease.


Laser cutting is our newest addition to our in-house capabilities. While the machinery is relatively new at KAD, the expertise and knowledge surrounding laser cutting is vast. We use industry leading software to layout and process even the most complex parts. With cutting edge scheduling software, we can nest your components with others on one sheet, both saving time and reducing cost whether it be 1 or 100,000 parts. We can even add laser marking during the cutting process.


Our welders have countless years of experience welding a wide variety of metals for numerous industries. Whether it’s going in a clean food processing plant, a greasy industrial machine, or in your home, we have the people, machines and know-how to accomplish the task. We weld in-house and on-site as the project dictates. Broke a unique cast-iron part? We can help. Need an aluminum chassis welded? No problem. Bring your welding problem to us to solve.


Often times KAD is called on-site to look at an existing piece of equipment that needs to be duplicated, repaired, or replaced. Sometimes that equipment has been customized or even fabricated without documentation. Our highly experienced staff can assist with the reverse engineering of your equipment and provide CAD services to create a model and drawing package that can be used to produce parts, or the whole assembly. Of course, we are always happy to offer a competitive fabrication quote for all designed parts.


Our machine shop has an assortment of equipment to suit most machining operations. Our machinists are industry veterans and have a passion for what they do. Our milling, turning and grinding equipment has been selected to support our shop and customer’s needs. For applications that can’t be performed in-house, we have a select group of partner shops we work closely with to make sure all aspects of your machined parts are exactly as you expect them.


Sometimes your project will require a service that KAD does not perform in-house. Powder coating, sand-blasting, chrome plating, and heat-treating to name a few. Our partner vendors have been selected based on their excellent reputation and proven track record for reliability and professionalism. If we can’t do it, we know who can.
