At FAB 3R, everything is oversized: our facilities, our equipment, the parts we make, repair and refurbish, and our entire range of services! We manage your projects from A to Z—from manufacture to delivery—with the same level of expertise and attention to quality we give all our products.
FAB 3R’s machining capacity will meet the needs of all your projects on large-sized equipment. Our machining shop alone is 65,000 square feet (6,048 m2) and houses not only traditional and digitally controlled machining equipment, but also stationary and portable drill presses and the equipment needed for high-precision machining like precision tables, inspection marble, and more. With these instruments, FAB 3R can provide tolerances not typically possible for large parts.
And even more importantly, the FAB 3R team has unmatched experience in machining very large parts. They can analyze your plans and work with your engineers and project managers to adapt them to provide the best machining solutions for your projects. Their goal is to prevent unpleasant surprises and help you identify potential cost increases or delays.

FAB 3R is proud to bring your projects from start to finish, and that’s why we also handle surface finishing and the logistics for delivering manufactured, repaired, and refurbished equipment.
We don’t do things halfway at FAB 3R. We also provide our clients with finishing services, including blasting, sanding, and surface finishing.
The FAB 3R team can meet even the most demanding requirements, particularly for paint. From applying a single coat of primer to a complex multi-coat finish process, our specialists follow all the rules to the letter.
By providing all the equipment fabrication and repair services under the same roof, FAB 3R helps you cut costs and production times by avoiding the need to move your parts from one service provider to another.
Located between the Autoroute 40 and the Saint Lawrence River, FAB 3R has easy access to various means of transportation (maritime, road, and rail) to ship your equipment. We can suggest the best shipping method for your budget and deadline.
We’re used to handling large-sized parts and are prepared to meet the highest standards in packaging for overseas delivery, container transport, and oversized equipment transport. FAB 3R can guarantee that your equipment will arrive safe and sound, regardless of the route it takes to get there.
In addition to work in the facility, our team can provide support on site. A technical advisor could estimate the repairs on site and supervise the work. In case of repairs, we provide an experienced team according to the work required: mechanics, welder-fitters and/or machinists. As we are aware of the impact of a plant shutdown may have on production, planned or not, work will be organized according to your schedule.
Why choose FAB 3R?
With our 200,000 square feet of shops and machine tools, we can manufacture, repair, or refurbish large and extra-large equipment. The only limits are the ones you set!
Certifié ISO 9001 depuis 1995, FAB 3R accorde une très grande importance à la qualité de l’ensemble de nos services. L’autocontrôle mis en place démontre bien la responsabilisation et la rigueur de nos employés, le tout encadré par des inspecteurs qualifiés, certifiés ASME.
When there’s a problem with a large piece of equipment, replacing it isn’t always the best option. FAB 3R can, in its facility or at the client’s, assess every part of a piece of equipment before providing a full diagnosis.
At FAB 3R, we believe that all projects deserve a dedicated manager. Every project we take on is run by a project manager who works with the client throughout the entire process.
