Fillauer, FabCo form new fabrication company
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (July 29, 2020) – Fillauer, a family-owned, global leader in Prosthetic and Orthotic manufacturing, joined with Nashville’s FabCo Prosthetic Designs to create FabCo Powered by Fillauer, an affiliate of Fillauer Companies, Inc.
Fillauer is moving its upper and lower prosthetic central fabrication (CFab) to the Nashville location, while the company’s Orthotic fabrication team in Chattanooga, Tenn., will continue to fabricate Reciprocating Gait Orthoses, Custom Dynamic Walks AFOs and SPL2 Stance Control KAFOs.
“We are thrilled to grow our already strong relationship with the partners at FabCo Prosthetic Designs,” Traci Dralle, Fillauer Companies President, said. “This new business expands our expertise and reflects a shared commitment to work with others in the profession to deliver the best possible results for customers.”
Building on FabCo’s strong reputation for top-quality, innovative central fabrication, this segment of Fillauer will also provide customers convenient ordering, transparent pricing, and the experience they expect in their day-to-day activities. The partnership importantly maintains the patient-first commitment it takes to offer the right solutions and customize every device to each patient’s unique needs.
“We have a longstanding relationship with Fillauer, fostered by our clear focus on clinical care,” Nick Gambill, Director of Fabrication, said. “We’ve also led the country in fabricating Fillauer’s posterior mount feet, and regularly work with their clinical education team,” he explained, “so this is a natural fit, and one we’re excited about.”
Customers who need fabrication support through Fillauer can send orders directly to the Nashville location effective immediately.
