Ducts in a row

The Vermont manufacturer of duct work, which is specially treated for the semiconductor, pharmaceutical and nanotechnology industries, has no inventory sitting on its shelves.

Although Fab-Tech operates two fabrication facilities in Vermont -- one in Colchester and one in Winooski -- employing approximately 140 people, the company's market is really a global one. Most of its customers are in Europe, China, Taiwan and Korea.

Fab-Tech creates stainless steel duct work lined with a plastic known as fluoropolymer -- with PermaShield Pipe being its product name. The ducts are known as air scrubbers that safely push corrosive acid fumes to a pollution abatement device before air is released to the outside.
