About Us

oklahoma city fabricationBoardman first opened its doors in 1910 in Oklahoma City as a tank and equipment manufacturer. We fabricated water well casing and buckets, hog feeders, stock watering tanks and other light galvanized sheet metal products. Later expanding into fans, cotton seed ginning and oil mill equipment, as well as gasoline storage tanks and grease racks, smoke stacks and breechings, culverts, oil field equipment and truck and trailer tanks. 

By 1926, Boardman diversified into bridge building, becoming the largest Oklahoma-based bridge builder. Boardman continued to diversify and in 1929 built our first Boardman fire truck for the City of Duncan, OK. Fire trucks were a standard Boardman product 20 years later. By 1940, Boardman began manufacturing pressure vessels and have held our ASME code stamp since 1948. By 1996, the final Boardman firetruck left our facility.
