Comercial Duct Fab Shops...

I have a instrumentation project working where I will need to purchase several sections of large dust collector ducting... 30" diameter 16 ga. in 10-12 foot sections are the specification I have. There may also be some smaller diameter pieces required, as well as 90's and LB's (perhaps).
I've talked to some 'custom' fab shops and their prices seem high... so I wondered if there were any shops out there that mass-produce this kind of thing and will ship to central Indiana reasonably?
Any of you folks have a shop or vendor you like?
Thanks,
Jake

You do understand what the word "specialty" means dont you? :-) You talked to "some" fab shops and they seem high. Does that tell you something? :-) You want someone to make it for you cheap and then ship it? :-) You do know what thats goina cost to ship, dont you? :-) The customer pays for everything.
All that aside, you can try Corken Steel Products 859-291-4664

Bubba,
What the HELL is so 'special' about a rolled and welded 16 ga. 30" diameter piece?
Thanks for the lead... I'll have someone call them.

I dunno. Im guessing you're talking about "Spiral duct"? That place just purchased the machines from another company that was making it in Lousiville or something like that. I dont really remember. I guess its special because its round and pretty. :-) Not like the rectangular crap we all deal with. I have no idea. Its expensive because not everyone makes it? Bubba

Jake,
If it's only 16ga. you want to call a commercial sheet metal shop.
You can have it galvanized, or not. Sub to the insulators to finish it up.
For any custom positive pressure non-spec stack, that's the way to go.
Way cheaper than any pre fabbed/insulated stack system.

Disregard please . News server issues kept me from the original post.

p.s. Yes, that amount of metal rolled and fitted, nice and square with flanges for bolting up the sections will cost you a good coin.

What corners are they cutting to quote you ducts so cheap? That price is nearly 1/4 of the cost that any reputable shop would charge.
Cheap, Quality, and Hoosier: Pick any two.
Don't make us say "we can't help it that you didn't pay enough".

Hah... That's one of MY favorite lines that you modified to take a ding at me...
The real lines is "Do you want it cheap, good or fast... pick any two?"
That's in the service end of the business, anyhow....

Jake, these people are closer than California and they have reps in your state, probably right in Indianapolis. Air Control Products reps them in Cleveland and we have used their product, its good stuff. They will fabricate right in the factory anything you need and ship it to your supplier or job site. The reps usually will go to the site and get exact measurments as well, at least ACP does. They have 60 suppliers nationwide.
Also, there is one right in Indianapolis http://www.jtdspiral.com/index.htm

Jake I don't know how central you are, there's an outfit just a hair north of Bloomington (about 50 miles more or less) south of Indy on SR 37. We have used them on several occassions for exceptionally large projects that would have otherwise overloaded our own fabrication capabilities. Their quality is second to none, and when they give you a timeline you can take it to the bank - considering those factors I have found them to be reasonably competitive with regards to pricing. They are Poynter Sheet Metal with two phone numbers (812) 935-6471 and (812)935-6472. They have several foremans and managers, but I am personally familiar with the ethics and work quality of Brad, you might ask for him - tell him you were refered by a friend of Kirby's, should put you on a fast track with quotes at least.
