New Hampton Metal Fabrication, located in New Hampton, Iowa, is a third generation, family-owned company that specializes in the metal fabrication of wet cast concrete forming systems, including molds for manholes, boxes, pipes and a variety of other specialty forms and equipment. Founded in 1945 by John Wegner, the small family business was primarily a blacksmith shop, known as Wegner Welding that started in a small 20' x 40' wooden shed. The focus of work was on local repair, agriculture repair, and remote welding services. The business continued to grow and in 1970 John sold the business to his son Gary and wife, Norma. Before the purchase of his father’s business, Gary worked for Hydrotile Machinery Company, Nashua, IA. Gary was an installation technician for a number of years traveling around the world installing Hydrotile machinery and equipment. It wasn’t until 1985 that Gary started to make wet cast concrete form equipment for his previous employer. In the spring of 1989 a new 60’ x 120’ building was constructed to fill the needs of the ever-growing customer base. With several building expansions over the years, New Hampton Metal Fabrication is a leader in the precast concrete industry. Gary’s sons Jamie and Nick helped grow the wet cast form business and purchased New Hampton Metal Fabrication from their father in 2007. In 2017, New Hampton Metal Fabrication merged with Afinitas company, HawkeyePedershaab. Today, Jamie and Nick lead the Afinitas Forming Systems Division, which also includes the Spillman Company. Their combined commitment to sound design, top workmanship, the use of quality materials, on-time delivery and fair pricing of products shows in every form produced.
