FabriTec Structures congratulates the record-breaking U.S. Swim team and U.S. Girls Gymnastics team on their monumental medal haul at the 2016 Rio Olympics. At FabriTec, we know what it means to go for gold.

In 2012, FabriTec celebrated its own Olympic achievements as a key member of the award-winning team who brought home the 2012 IFAI International Achievement Award for the Dow Olympic Stadium Wrap. Read more about FabriTec’s role in the design and engineering of the Stadium.
