Welcome to Five Star Fabricating

Five Star is the industry leading manufacturer of advanced composites, polycarbonate windows, and thermoformed plastics. Our technologies are born from the tight-tolerance, high performance world of auto racing, making us the leader in developing lighter and stronger automotive exterior components. Our company was founded in 1979 on the principle that quality must be the highest priority – both for our company's success and for the benefit and integrity of an entire industry. The fact that you have come to us here shows that your commitment to developing high-quality fabricated components is every bit as strong as our own.

Over the past 37 years, the quality demands that we face in the racing industry have forced us to expand our in-house manufacturing capabilities to achieve the standards our customers require.  As a result, today we have the experience and knowledge to walk with you through every stage of product development to create components of unparalleled quality – delivering best-in-class fabricated components that are lightweight, strong, and defect-free.

We remained focused on expanding our market share outside of motorsports and we are pleased with the acceptance we are receiving.  We have a number of promising fabricating solutions in our research and development pipeline and we continue to invest in our employees and manufacturing footprint. To that end, our market share continues to grow and we are poised for new and challenging fabricating projects.

Dedicated to Quality and Service

Five Star is a privately-held, family-owned company supporting 115 hard-working men and women, and their families. After 37+ years in the fabricating industry, we are a stable and growing company positioned to supply virtually any OEM or Tier supplier in the marketplace, providing reliable fabricated components that add significant value for our customers. Our employees are cross-trained and we have the capability to handle seasonal production surges, all while adhering to our commitment to quality.
