Discover Egan: Delivering Fabrication

Monday, March 21st, 2022

Fabrication: the name of the game when it comes to meeting deadlines and budgets and improving control over the supply chain. Egan Company’s state-of-the-art shops staffed by skilled tradespeople fabricate piping, plumbing, electrical components, panels, curtainwall, and metal panels.

Prefabrication projects are completed within our local shops with access to the necessary resources on demand. Our investment in continually improving the process is evident through preconstruction planning and feeding virtual construction plans directly into the fabrication equipment – both of which improve quality and save our customers time and money.

Fabrication capabilities include:

Plumbing and piping – A variety of deliverable products depart from our mechanical shop. When it comes to plumbing and piping systems, this includes everything from tube and pipe to hangers/supports. Modular custom-built systems are also at play in this fabrication shop to meet customers needs.

UL 508A panels – Our panel team creates custom control panels, designed and built in house. With precision assembly we configure panels of all shapes and sizes in our 12,000 square-foot panel shop. Shop features include: Steinhauer ModCenter (automated hole/cutout machine for enclosures), custom label manufacturing, OEM manufacturing, 6S methodology.

Electrical – Our design and virtual electrical teams map out projects virtually before they move on to be built in our shop and installed on site. 

Curtainwall and metal panels – The InterClad team is able to fast track their curtainwall and panel projects with in-house drafting and engineering, matched with fast fabrication and assembly in their shop. The new addition of a CNC machine furthers the efficiency of this shop.

Working with Egan allows fabrication with no bounds – our capabilities will streamline your project to completion. The benefits of prefabricating your project are endless:

  • Work is simplified and standardized
  • Easier trade coordination with reduced task durations
  • Increased quality of product
  • Reduced crew on the jobsite
  • Reduced deliveries and storage required on-site
  • Reduced wasted materials
  • Lower overall cost
  • Increased safety in controlled environment

Mechanical Shops Expansion

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

Over 70 years ago, Egan Company began as a plumbing and heating contractor. The sheet metal trade was added in 1958. Since this era, Egan has invested in its fabrication shops to provide fast delivery of custom-built mechanical systems to its customers.
With the advent of Virtual Construction practices, investment in fabrication shops has become even more important to the industry. When properly implemented by the entire project team, Virtual Construction allows Egan to “manufacture” piping, plumbing, and sheet metal components in its shops-under ideal conditions and with great efficiency. These components can be stored away from the jobsite and delivered just-in-time for field erection. The result: a lower cost building built over a shorter schedule.MechShop_0047

With the recent relocation of the warehouse and service garage functions to its new Champlin facility, Egan acted on the opportunity to expand and renovate its mechanical fabrication shops for increased productivity while also creating a safer environment for employees.

“Any task we can perform in our facility, under controlled conditions rather than on the jobsite, is a win for our customers,” said Mark Habermann, Egan Company Manufacturing Manager. “We’ve expanded our shops with the purpose of integrating all shops into one . . . we opened walls to promote the sharing of resources and foster collaboration across all trades.”

Trades served by the expanded shop space include sheet metal, piping, plumbing, and millwrights.
