For four generations, our family has owned and operated Vendome Copper & Brass Works, Inc.  Operating continuously since the early 1900’s, we are a full service custom metal fabricator for industrial and commercial processing equipment. We have built our company on the principles of uncompromising quality and superior service. Today our master craftsmen and committed management ensure those principles remain constant.

Our customers span from Fortune 500 global companies to small businesses just starting out. Our services range from fabricating new processing equipment to modifying or maintaining existing equipment both in our shop and at your site.  We know your business doesn’t operate on a normal business schedule, so neither do we—our crews are always ready to respond to customer’s emergencies - anytime, any day, all year round.

We are a custom fabricator specializing in processing equipment for many different industries including distilling, brewing, pharmaceutical, dairy, chemical, food and confectionery, and more.  We work with a wide variety of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, including high nickel alloys, stainless steel, copper alloys and other exotic metals. Our equipment meets all recognized standards, including ANSI, API, ASME, NBIC, TEMA and National Board.


Throughout our history, dramatic events have shaped our company: Prohibition and its subsequent repeal, World Wars, natural disasters, rising technology, the emergence and growth of new industries.  We have always adapted to change and welcome the challenge and opportunities it offers.  We will continue to use new materials, improved technology and the most practical production processes. We will continue to expand our horizons, but our dedication to uncompromising quality and superior service will never change.
