A Real Life Trash-to-Treasure Story
Al Melideo began manufacturing galvanized residential trash cans and other steel products in 1959. In the early 1970s, he started making steel component parts for commercial container manufacturers. This led to his own front load and roll-off container manufacturing, and in 1974, Consolidated Fabricators Corporation (ConFab) was formed. Today, ConFab is the largest container manufacturer of its kind on the West Coast.
Al's experience at processing steel and component parts taught him a valuable lesson: to be self-sufficient in all aspects of manufacturing. By doing so, he could control his costs, maintain production schedules and, most importantly, keep on-time delivery commitments to his customers. This reputation for on-time delivery is still a focus of his son, Michael, who now runs the company. And to this day, the steel purchasing and processing aspects of the company remain its strengths.
The product line that began with refuse containers has expanded to include recycling, hazardous waste, material handling and storage containers. Many of the products are available in sub-assembled or knockdown form to facilitate out-of-state and overseas shipments. In addition, complete lines of nestable front load and roll-off containers are now available.
