Like many of Humboldt’s industries that started small, Bailey Fabricating continues to grow and thrive with a recent expansion into a new 7,900 square foot facility in Humboldt’s Northwest Industrial Park.
Bailey Fabricating constructs food grade pallet racking, kayak trailers, after market parts and a lot of specialty welding for local manufacturers. Owner-operator Randy Bailey added a brake press, laser cutter and CNC router with the expansion to help expand his customer base and his capabilities.
Bailey worked for six years at The Chantland Company, and then went to work at Humboldt Controls and Fabricating, working there until Voyager Industries bought them out. The last five years he was the General Manager. When Voyager closed their Humboldt plant, Randy started Bailey Fabricating.
“They left behind some customers on the steel side. I talked to those customers and they said they’d stick with me so I was very fortunate,” Bailey said.
Needing more space, he decided to have his own building constructed in the Industrial Park. He worked with Alissa O’Connor at the Humboldt County Development Association (HCDA), who he said was very helpful in the entire process.
“The goal is to continue to work with more and more companies around the area. When they get busy I can help them out,” Bailey said. “As we continue to grow we anticipate adding employees.”
