Matt Vincent, the third partner in Durango’s largest and most award-winning craft beer brewery, invented and built dozens of devices over the years to help Ska Brewing achieve efficiencies in the brewing, packaging and distribution of their beer. But the strong demand for one of those machines inspired Vincent to start a new company.
Ska Fabricating began in June of 2012 in a 500-square foot space west of Durango, but relocated in November of 2013 to a 5,000-square foot warehouse just across the Animas River. At that time, machinist Dan Morris joined the company as Vice President and partner, bringing years of CNC machining expertise as well as the equipment—CNC machines and a waterjet table, which expands the company’s ability to create custom equipment tailored to the client’s needs. In February of 2016, Ska Fabricating bought the building at our current location, 545 Turner Drive. The company now employs 30+ people, manufacturing and selling depalletizers, conveyors and packaging line equipment to businesses around the world.
