Branch overview

Kloeckner Nashville is the home of American Fabricators. American Fabricators is located in Nashville, Tennessee, the state’s capital. Nashville is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation and the home of country music, the Grand Ole Opry, and the historic Ryman Auditorium. Downtown Nashville is filled with honky-tonks, live music, and the Johnny Cash Museum. Nashville’s culture is unique and world famous.

American Fabricators is solely focused on value-added fabrication, not raw material distribution distribution, though the facility works with a variety of metals including HRP&O, cold rolled, galvanized, galvannealed, aluminized, prepaint, electro-galvanized, aluminum, and stainless.
