Craig Stewart grew up in San Diego's East County, the hub of the off-road racing world. As son of legendary racer Ivan "Ironman" Stewart, he was always working in the garage on cars. When he turned 15, he figured he might as well get paid for it, and got a job building championship winning race trucks for one of the top teams.
Next, Craig rounded out his metal fabrication skills under the direction of some of the best in the business at Unique Metal Products. There he became a frequently requested fabricator by customers, due to his easy-going personality and impeccable attention to detail.
In 1995 Craig and his wife, Sherrie, started Stewart's RaceWorks, which quickly became, and remains, one of the top fabrication shops in off-road racing. We are famous for our high-end luxury prerunners, built from the ground up.
Over the years, with Craig's reputation for quality craftsmanship, came inquiries to build things beyond the off-road industry. Knowing diversification is key to longevity, along with the desire to do new and interesting things, Stewart Fabrication was born..
Craig is skilled in SolidWorks CAD software, and has the knowledge to build just about anything. Sherrie runs the business side of things, and is also a graphic designer, proficient in Adobe Illustrator. Several talented fabricators and an engineer round out our creative, meticulous, and ingenuous team.
The majority of our metal fabrication work is custom, one-off pieces. We fabricate heavy duty industrial parts, delicate artwork, and almost everything in between. We are not a precision sheet metal shop, a machine shop, nor do we do structural steel projects (commercial buildings, bridges, etc.). We are always happy to refer you to another reputable business if there is something out of our wheelhouse.
We have become the go-to shop for implementing large public works of art and other unique or difficult projects, but appreciate the simple things too. We do short to medium runs on our large capacity water jet machine, making us the perfect fit for the local hobbyist, entrepreneur, or small business. While we strive to be competitively priced, our first priority is producing high quality products.
