Pipe Fabricating & Supply Company was started by two men near the end of World War II, a Mr. Samson and Mr. Green, and was located in Los Angeles on the East side of town on Pico St. not far from city hall. At the end of WWII and just out of the Seabees, John Eagle joined the company as a Journeyman Pipefitter. Soon after, the small shop moved to Compton, CA on Alameda St. to a larger facility. Mr. Eagle rose very quickly to the top and with permission from the owners studied in the evenings to get his contractor license. Then, in April of 1946, Mr. Eagle filed the paperwork to successfully incorporate Pipe Fabricating & Supply Co. Mr. Eagle eventually bought the company.
In 1955 the company moved to Santa Fe Springs in a remarkable feat. The move maintained minimal down time, and customers’ schedules were unaffected. This was accomplished by setting up each workman’s station one at a time then stopping that workman just long enough to drive him to the new shop ready with equipment, material, and drawings. They were back to work in minutes.
John Eagle, the founder of the company as it is today, found friendship with longtime acquaintance, and WWII veteran, Al Simmons. Mr. Simmons was asked to join the company in 1961. Mr. Simmons provided the company years of engineering experience in the field of pipe fabrication, having had years of employment with a large well known fabricator as well as a world class engineering firm. A few years later Mr. Simmons became a partner in the business with Mr. Eagle. It was a fortunate match that not only strengthened the company’s philosophy but gained the respect of customers throughout the industry. Mr. Simmons was invited to join the ASME Boiler Code Committee, and became an active member who represented the practical side of the pipe fabrication industry on the committee for many years.
The success of the company allowed expansion with an addition of a second shop in 1972, located in Woods Cross, Utah. As years went by the Utah facility expanded four fold and in year 2000 acquired additional acreage. This allowed the company to move all fabrication from Santa Fe springs to the expanded Woods Cross, Utah 100,000 square foot Fabrication Facility.
In 2003, the company moved corporate offices from Santa Fe Springs to the current location in Anaheim, CA. The corporate offices include sales, estimating, purchasing, accounting, and executive personnel. The Utah offices include project managers, QA & QC personnel, drafting department, and all associated shop personnel.
John Eagle worked until his passing in year 2000 at the age of 83. Al Simmons worked until his passing in 2012 at the age of 86. Currently, Jerry Eagle, son of John Eagle, and Ernie Simmons, Al Simmons son, are continuing to operate the company with the same philosophy of honest straight forward service.
