Dixie-Southern is happy to introduce a brand new blog to help our clients stay up to date with the latest industry news and analysis. In this first installment, we’d like to share our company story, our diverse range of steel fabrication services, and the many industries we serve.

Our Story

Dixie-Southern was founded in 1976 as a privately-held small fabricator with a small shop in rural west-central Florida. Today, we have a highly-trained staff of 70 individuals, a 12-acre manufacturing and storage facility, and clients across nine different industries. From non-code tanks to steel silos and wind turbine towers, Dixie-Southern has expanded its services and is now a nationwide leader in steel and stainless steel fabrication with products being used all over the globe.

Our Services

When it comes to custom-designed steel fabrication, we offer detailed welding and fitting, plate rolling, shearing, shape burning, breaking and bending, heat treatment, surface prep, paint, punching, drilling, sawing, and plasma cutting services. We design and engineer tanks, steel structures, and piping in accordance with customer requirements and expectations. We also provide painting, coating, and lining to improve appearance and weather resistance on our products as required.
