About Salem Fabrication Technology Group

We are more than a fabrication machinery and tooling distributor or supplier. Salem Fabrication Technologies Group has built our reputation on 86 years of experience and wealth of product and process knowledge—expertise unique to a single company. The Salem team takes a guided approach to preparing glass fabricators and glazing professionals for peak performance with quality tooling, material handling, supplies and machinery solutions. The solutions we offer are not exclusive to the flat glass industry. Any industry where precision surfacing and edging are important in the fabrication process, including but not limited to the stone and ophthalmic industries, can benefit from our expertise. Learn more about the industries we serve.

Recently, our company restructured into two divisions to better serve the changing needs of our customers—Salem Fabrication Supplies and HHH Equipment Resources. Salem Fabrication Supplies handles the tooling and supply side of the industries we serve. Whether your operation is a glass, stone, ophthalmic or other specialized fabricator, Salem Fabrication Supplies is the strategic partner you need for your production process goods and materials. HHH Equipment Resources provides innovative technology through a full line of glass processing equipment as well as unmatched technical support and service.
