About Us

Hobson Fabricating is Idaho’s choice for commercial and residential HVAC, commercial roofing, and structural, architectural, and specialty metal fabrication. We build and design heating, cooling, and ventilating systems with unparalleled quality and attention to detail. In addition, our 30,000 square foot shop allows us to engineer and fabricate a wide variety of high quality metals, ranging from essential structural pieces to unique decorative elements. 

We specialize in commercial and industrial HVAC, HVAC service, roofing and architectural metals, and specialty fabrication-- but we go far beyond those service offerings. 

Hobson Fabricating is much more than a mechanical contracting company. We are designers, engineers, artists, builders, and installers. We hire members of the Sheet Metal Workers International Union, which allows us to provide skilled, qualified workers for each job. Hobson currently has 40 employees in our fabrication shop, as well as 120 employees in the field. 

Our 30,000 square foot shop is a high-tech, environmentally controlled production facility with 5 acres of lay-down area and 12 fully-functioning welding bays. We also employ state-of-the-art, fully automated fabrication equipment. 

We utilize Iowa Precision duct coil lines, Spiral USA machines and ovalizers, Lockformer plasma tables, and Windows-based workstations. This equipment connects to a central file server that runs several different 3D CAD packages, which ensures precision design and streamlined production.
