With the increasing influence of the service industry sector on the U.S economy, along with the baby boomer generation approaching retirement age, manufacturing companies are in need for young skilled fabricators. Companies are willing to pay premium salaries and benefits to enthusiastic young workers willing to take the reigns from the previous generation of fabricators. This is exactly what motivated Troy Johnson to start The Fab School 11 years ago.
Troy is a leader in the fabrication industry and has more than 25 years experience. Troy has handpicked some of the top industry professionals to join The Fab School as instructors. Each instructor has over 10 years of experience in the fabrication industry and possesses unique, insider knowledge of the complexity and scope of work involved in the fabrication industry today. Troy and the other instructors at The Fab School take pride in passing their skills, expertise, and industry knowledge to the students.
As we celebrated our 10 year anniversary last year, we moved to a larger facility in Rancho Cucamonga. The Fab School, has become a training and proving ground for the nation’s next generation of skilled fabricators.
Early in his life, Troy also realized that he was a natural-born racer. He started racing dirt bikes and later Baja with a friend. Johnson combined his interests in racing and fabrication to jump-start his career. He has helped bring many top teams to victory including but not limited to Curt LeDuc, Walker Evans, Mike Leslie, Team Kia with Darren Skilton which led him to start Johnson Fab. Years later we are here, getting ready to celebrate 12 years of The Fab School.
