ARCS Foundation Phoenix American Fence Company Field Trip

Posted on Sunday, February 2, 2020

ARCS Phoenix Chapter members visited the American Fence Company January 26, 2020. Betty Van Denburgh, the original owner, and her son, Dan, and Grandson, Dan, gave us a grand tour. We learned about how fences are made and saw the manufacturing process. The company also makes tubing, such as the type you see that frame a fence. Tubing was being made while we watched, and the product was beautiful and functional. A lot of science, especially chemistry, goes into the manufacturing of metal fences. We were happy to know fences are made right here in Phoenix. If you would like to learn more about what we saw, you can check out this youtube video:
