About Us


Heritage was founded in 1936 as Woods Welding and was located on the East Side of Princeton, Indiana.  In 1981 Russ Butts purchased the business and renamed it Heritage Custom Fabricators.  He moved the business in 1985 to its current location on "Sandhill", 3 miles west of Princeton.  Heritage has always been a family owned and operated manufacturer specializing in gearbox repair, gear cutting, machining, and fabrication.

In June 2019 Heritage Custom Fabricators was acquired by Nix Companies, a fifth generation family owned business of Poseyville, IN. Nix Companies is a group small synergistic companies focused around industrial product sales, manufacturing, and maintenance contracting.
