DK FAB was started in 1999 by Dan Kirsch as a mobile welding and steel fabrication shop in Woodburn, Oregon. In 2006 the company took over for Paul Serres of Back Acre Hop Farms as a supplier of hop picking machine & component parts.
Dan always had an interest in hop farming and spent many summers working for his Uncle Paul among the hops. He was fascinated with the harvesting process, this led him to discovering his real interest was in the processing equipment. To this day it still fuels his passion for developing equipment that can perform better and more efficiently for farmers everywhere.
True to its roots the company is still located where it all began in Woodburn and in 2015 a second location was opened in Zillah, Washington.
