Established in 1979 by its founders, Dan and David Phillips, PAX has grown to be one of the largest privately owned structural steel fabricators in the southeast United States.

Following the hands-on approach and leadership of its founders, PAX has developed a work process that is not typical of our industry. Simply put, “we move the men not the material”. Our approach of minimal material handling in our fabrication process not only increases production but the overall quality of the fabricated goods and helps create a safer work environment.

In 1995, PAX opened its second facility in DeRidder, LA and essentially, doubled our output capacity. All administrative, programming, purchasing and project management is performed at our Gonzales location.

Maintaining the work ethic instilled by our founders, PAX continues its desire to improve productivity, customer relations and financial growth as we move to build a better future….together.
