About Us

Nix Metals is the trade name or “DBA” for Carl A. Nix Welding Service, Inc. We are a fifth generation family business specializing in custom metal fabrication services, short run manufacturing, product design, engineering, finishing, and assembly. In addition to our custom service & solutions, we also offer a wide range of finished products that we market directly to end users or sell through distributors.


We competitively handle large scale parts (as much as 60,000 lbs. per part) and high volume manufacturing runs (thousands of smaller parts per run). We also regularly offer our services for smaller projects, giving each client and each project the same attention and quality they deserve.


We are located at 129 W. Fletchall Ave., Poseyville, IN 47633. We are conveniently situated along Interstate 64 less than 20 miles outside of Evansville, IN with great centralized access to Louisville (east), St. Louis (west), Indianapolis (north), and Nashville (south).


In January of 2018 Nix Metals acquired Superior Fabrication Inc. of Rockport, IN. Superior Fabrication was founded in 1997 by Curtis Drake. The business specializes in structural and miscellaneous metal fabrication.

Superior’s customer base is focused around general contractors in the commercial construction space, as well as heavy industrial clients. This acquisition creates a strong synergy for Nix Metals allowing it to leverage its existing industrial client relationships as well as branching into the commercial construction space.

Superior Fabrication has nearly 40,000 sq. ft. of production space with two CNC beam lines; making it one of the most efficient and competitive shops in the region.

Superior Fabrication is also an AISC certified fabricator, which accredits it’s quality management practices.
