Our FRP products are only as good as the service behind them—what good is having a world-class product with no support to back it up? At DEFI we make implementing our FRP products easy for you with support in design, engineering, fabrication, and installation.
We leave nothing to chance when you entrust us with your structural fiberglass needs—we build relationships with our customers and our success is rooted in the quality of services we provide.
Drafting – Often times the hardest part of a project is just getting started. We completely understand that struggle and that’s why we have seasoned design specialists on hand to help you. Whether you need schematics, shop drawings, or full assembly guides for self-installation—DEFI is ready and willing. Not sure what you need in your facility but have a certain vision? Not a problem. At DEFI, if you can envision it—we can get it done.
3D Mockup – It is hard to look at a two-dimensional representation of a product and get a solid feel for it in all of its intended design. That is why we provide you with an exact scaled down, three-dimensional mockup to give you a complete 360° view of the assembly. Using the most advanced, state-of-the-art 3D printers our scaled mockups are accurate representations of what your product will look like once installed. Along with seeing the finished product in the mockup, you can even break out each of the components allowing an exploded view of how everything comes together to create the final assembly.
Timely Performance – Our teams that handle estimating, production management, and materials procurement work within a carefully choreographed system that allows us to ensure that your project and design needs are met in a punctual manner within your budget. We expect nothing but the best from our internal departments because our customers expect the same from DEFI and we deliver.
When it comes to creating FRP products that need to meet all varying degrees of industrial standards—you need a manufacturer that understands all aspects of engineering. DEFI is qualified to review and certify designs based on the standards set by your respective state. Compared to other FRP manufacturers, DEFI recruits the best technical staff with deep institutional knowledge in all applicable engineering disciplines. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Structural Engineering
- Electrical & Systems Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
This makes DEFI a full-service solution for any FRP needs your company may have. When you can eliminate confusion from several different companies cross-communicating on a project, you save time money and end up with a smoother workflow. At DEFI, we are committed to a streamlined process from start to finish and that shows in the processes we employ in each and every department.
When it comes to FRP fabrication, you need a manufacturer that focuses heavily on accuracy and quality control while maintaining production deadlines.
Computer-Controlled Production – DEFI outperforms every other FRP manufacturer at fabricating the best FRP products on the market—and continuing to develop new solutions to common challenges in the industry. From simple material prep (cutting, routing, coating, and more) to full assembly projects or even pre-assembled—DEFI uses the latest in computer-controlled machinery and CNC drills.
This technology ensures the utmost accuracy while working efficiently to meet production deadlines and produce a large volume of product in a timely fashion. The other added benefit of using computer-controlled machinery is the ability to have a tight control over manufacturing parameters. This strict adherence to accuracy in production not only ensures the quality DEFI customers have come to know us for—but helps make final assembly easier and much quicker.
Organization is the foundation of any installation, large or small. DEFI makes installation as easy as possible whether we are installing or you are handling it yourself. We have your needs in check for a timely and cost-effective installation.
Assembly – Even though all of DEFI products are designed to easily be assembled onsite, there are special circumstances where pre-assembly in modules helps speed installation. For example, individual sections of a catwalk platform for a brewery might be pre-assembled in modules that will all be connected together onsite. We can even completely assemble products for you and ship it ready to install. Often, products like pedestrian bridges where it may be hard to get to the area of installation may be shipped whole and ready to be installed.
Kitted Shipments – There’s nothing more time-consuming than getting parts for an assembly that are packaged out of order and not clearly labeled. At DEFI our shipments are packaged like a kit with documentation to support as well. No more searching or guess which part goes where or how to assemble. Everything is shipped together in a kit, ready for you to follow the instructions of installation.
Priority Packing – For projects that require specific, staged assembly, DEFI will ship your kits in the order of installation on a timeline that works for you. This helps reduce clutter at your worksite and eliminate any confusion during assembly. This is just another way DEFI makes the process as smooth and easy as possible for our clients.
