CFMI is Now Phoenix Companies

Started in a garage in 1975 in Sterling, Virginia with one CNC machine, Carl Foster grew to serve many of the Fortune 500 and DC area companies. Such was the attention to detail, the owner had to move out of his garage and into two leased bays in Lorton, Virginia. The shop enjoyed tremendous growth through the best fabrication of hundreds of parts for all types of industries in the Mid-Atlantic. 

In 2014, after several years of close cooperation with Phoenix Companies, Phoenix purchased Carl Foster and merged this top rated shop into the current 12,000 square feet facility in Lorton, Virginia

At Phoenix Companies, we take special pride in our continued long-standing relationships with our DoD, Military, Civilian Government and Fortune 500 clients. We serve individuals, small and medium-sized businesses and associations and non-profit organizations.
