FAST FACTS
  • Vance Metal’s fabrications play an integral part in the $27 billion pump/compressor industry.
  • If you uncoiled the welding wire Vance Metal used in 2014, it would reach from the Geneva, N.Y., to New Orleans and back.
  • Our Beverage Tanks were used to produce 2 million gallons of wine, cider and spirits in 2014.
  • In 2014, 3000 tons of metal passed through our shop—that’s 6 million pounds.
  • Ever taken a cruise? There’s a good chance Vance Metal’s weldments went into the heating and cooling system for your cruise ship.
  • An African Elephant when born weighs 200 lbs.—and our total crane capacity could lift 425 Baby Elephants 15 feet into the air at the same time.
