Why Local Businesses Make for a Better Choice

Local businesses across Metro Vancouver are bustling, and for good reason. More and more people are flocking to local businesses for all manner of things; from craft beer to artisanal cheese, handcrafted furniture to homemade treats, auto maintenance to steel fabrication – mom and pop shops are back with a vengeance and treating their customers the way they deserve!

Which is just one of the reasons ‘Why Local Businesses Make for a Better Choice’. Need more reasons? See below!


As a local business owner, we are accountable to the customers we serve. From product quality to service and presentation, how we do business matters to us, as do our customers.

We are a family run and owned company, so we pride ourselves on running our steel fabrication shop in Langley with the same respect one would have for the people they care about, and hold ourselves accountable in the same manner.


Local businesses also bring about a sense of community, helping to train and hire local individuals who help to create, manufacture, install or provide services to local neighbours and friends, reaching far-flung neighbouring communities who also hear about such must-use local businesses.

With social media ironically creating a less social environment, local businesses find ways to keep their communities thriving, bringing people into their stores for a face-to-face transaction, and an end product that meets their needs and exceeds their expectations.


Which brings us to quality. Local business owners know that quality matters to their customers, so they don’t take shortcuts or offer sub-par products or workmanship on their goods or services. In fact, they will usually go a step above and beyond the expected, simply because they are passionate about what they do, how they do it, and the end result people receive.

As a locally owned and operated business, Absolute Fabrication offers both drafting and design services in-house to help your steel fabrication project come to life.
