elevating your experience
Meet the new Solid Form: a visual expression of our company’s continued evolution. Our updated brand reflects our commitment to our team, customers, and community to take projects and partnerships further.
our mission is ingenuity
Solid Form is a custom metal fabrication shop in McMinnville, Oregon. A team of problem-solvers and creators, we take on projects that benefit from ingenuity and collaboration — working closely with our clients to find innovative solutions to complex challenges.
redefining metal fabrication
Some of our projects are all about function — like the catwalks we’ve produced for local wineries. On others, we contribute our unique design perspective to help architects and other clients realize an aesthetic vision — like distinctive spiral staircases for a restaurant. Still others are industry-specific or equipment-based specialty projects — all designed to be both beautiful and functional. No matter where on this spectrum your project falls, Solid Form will be your partner and resource every step of the way.
When you receive our product or check out an install we completed, you can count on it to be exactly right for your project. It’s the sum of effective processes and a passion for ingenuity.
As your partner on a project, we start by understanding your vision. From there, we measure every decision against your priorities — whether they are functional, aesthetic, schedule-driven, or all the above.
We support your project, literally — with custom fabricated parts like beams, frames, stairs, railings, supports, and other structural metal elements. It all came together beautifully in this beach house designed by Dennis Greenbaum.
From signs and awnings to countertops, sinks, hoods, and backsplashes, we bridge the ornamental and the functional to give your project a one-of-a-kind cohesive appearance – like the tasting room at Soter Vineyards.
Starting with winery equipment, we’ve produced many of the nuts and bolts that make a business run, including catwalks — like the one you see here for A to Z Wineworks — and sorting lines, hoppers, and food processing tools.
grow with us
It’s an exciting time for Solid Form: We just expanded into our second building, invested in new equipment, and kicked off projects that call for our full range of capabilities. This means we have the space to grow our team of innovators. We are also committed to multiplying career opportunities in the skilled trades. Solid Form has a breadth of professional opportunities available, so you can chart your own path forward based on your unique strengths and interests. If diverse challenges and complex projects get you up in the morning, we look forward to hearing from you! (See what we’ve been up to lately on Instagram.)
The Estimator is the key communication link between everyone involved in the project. You are the first step in each project and play a key role in the team’s ability to deliver successful results.
As an entry level / apprentice Fabricator, you’ll learn the ropes of how to operate in a custom fabrication shop and jobsite environment, and grow your skills among experienced team members.
The Level 2 Fabricator position is a stepping stone to expert fabricator. You’ll get comfortable on the shop floor and at client jobsites, honing your expertise and perfecting your craft.
Our Level 3 Fabricator acts as both colleague and mentor. In addition to your fabrication chops (which are impressive), you’ll assist in the growth and development of apprentice and journey-level team members.
