Get To Know Southern Fabrication Specialties


How We Began

Southern Fabrication Specialties was created out of Southern Frac Tank Manufacturing, which was originally founded in 2011. At the time of Southern Frac’s inception, our products were designed to serve the oil and gas industry exclusively. We started off manufacturing only frac tanks, producing around 1200 to 1300 frac tanks per year. Southern Fabrication Specialties was established in 2015 in response to a fluctuating energy market. Since then, we have substantially diversified our offerings to include various high-quality steel products, including construction hoppers, storm shelters, chassis, specialty trailers, shipping container modifications, prefabricated parts, and more.

Southern Frac and Southern Fabrication Specialties are part of General Finance Corporation (NASDAQ: GFN), a multi-national, publicly-traded company based in Pasadena, California. We are proud to create custom products that can serve customers from a wide variety of industries. We have experience assisting customers from construction, DoD and defense contractors, agriculture, aviation, oil and gas, municipal, environmental/ disaster relief, power and energy, pipeline, manufacturing, and more.
