Our History

Dawson Performance has been an established woman owned business since 2000.  The business was started as a sign shop located in the spare bedroom of our home.  Since our humble beginnings, Dawson Performance has now grown into a 10,000 sq-ft Machining & Fabricating business with capatilities to address all your manufacturing and signage requirements.

The company growth can only be attributed to my husband’s and my faith in the lord, and our continual commitment to our customers.  The skilled staff at DP is continually striving to provide our customers with Professional Service, Quality, Increased Productivity and Prompt Delivery.

I would invite you to consider partnering with Dawson Performance on your next project.  The personal services we provide give our customers a positive experience.  We look forward to working with you.

Sincerely:   Margaret L. Dawson – Owner / President
