Lincoln Electric® Torchmate® Tables Drastically Improve Productivity for Urban Garage AZ
Building the Dream
Located in Prescott Valley, Arizona, Urban Garage AZ specializes in automotive customization for a wide range of vehicles. The locally owned and operated shop is known for providing a wide range of exceptional performance and high-precision automotive parts. Steven Ellis originally started his shop as an off-road club back in 2012. With over a decade of welding, fabrication, and CNC plasma cutting experience, he quickly became the preferred fabricator for repairs and part installations for UTVs, cars, and trucks. Steve wears numerous hats when it comes to his business. He can be seen manning the front desk or selling, fabricating, and installing the parts to ensure everyone that walks through his shop door, has a completely personalized experience.
Giving Back to the Community
Steve's remarkable service extends beyond the doors of Urban Garage. One of his biggest projects he is currently working on is a Search and Rescue SEMA build. The service he provides is a complete volunteer effort and he's building this truck to give back and help his community in times of need. The state of Arizona often faces extreme danger from fire or floods and increased help to find lost citizens is always needed. As of June 3, 2019, Arizona has experienced over 500 wildfires that burned nearly 11,000 acres across the state. After almost losing his home twice, Steven took it upon himself to design and build a Ford F-350 into a Search and Rescue vehicle to help individuals that are unable to take care of themselves. His dedication and support for others, extends way beyond the doors of his shop.
Steve recently upgraded and the Torchmate table is drastically increasing his productivity for the SEMA build. "Before I had the table, it was hours of work to make custom motor mounts that match, hours spent cutting and grinding, less creativity to make the parts faster," Steve Ellis states. "We can bend tubes for bumpers and racks, I have a metal brake to bend thick and thin metal and we can do bead rolling and several sizes of dimple dies." On Urban Garage's social media pages, Steve often posts pictures of completed project builds and current projects he is working on. Customers can browse their website and learn more about the impressive service Steve can offer for their vehicles.
