Our History

In November of 1953, Ambox, originally named “American Box and Cabinet,” was started as one of Houston’s first metal fabricating companies. During the time of Walt Disney’s “Peter Pan” premiere and the F.C.C. ruling that color TV can go on the air, the President of Ambox, James E. Keith, was a businessman utilizing his talents in a profession that has made Ambox a metalworking success.
Our manufacturing facility is located in the original NASA headquarters building on Telephone Road where over 88,000 square feet is utilized for manufacturing automotive, oil field, medical, government, and various other metal products. In 1953, when the cost of a stamp was $.03 and gasoline only $.21 per gallon you could count on Ambox for quality service. We look forward to creating quality parts for our customers for the next 60 years, and take pride in manufacturing in the USA.
