• Unmatched Expertise in Complex Metal Fabrication

    For nearly 70 years, Roark has been an industry leader, supplying complex metal fabrications to aerospace, energy and science clients.  

    A passion for working with metal has long lived within the Roark family. Charles (Fred) Roark founded C.F. Roark in 1949. His father, John Landis Roark, was a blacksmith by trade, and helped instill in Fred a love for working with metals. 

    Today, Charles (Ted) Roark, Fred Roark’s son, is at the helm of Roark, headquartered in Central Indiana. The robust Roark team includes a highly-skilled engineering and development staff, as well as a full quality assurance department serving major OEMs across the globe and many mid-sized companies who require specialized metal fabrication.

    From its inception, Roark has been fabricating sophisticated shapes utilizing many various metals, including exotic metals. Our clients have come to trust Roark for unmatched expertise and technical skill within the arena of complex metal fabricating and look to us for an in-depth understanding of their unique applications. 

    We recognize our clients’ specifications are precise. Our ability to electron beam weld has made us a leader within the industry. It allows our team to go extremely narrow and deep with less distortion. For many clients this is a distinct advantage and something they have come to depend on Roark to deliver time and time again.

    At Roark, not only will you find craftsmanship work, but quality production delivered on time and within specification. It’s just who we are.
