Fabrication Services

Artful fabrication is a key part of presenting a mechanical design. At Callaway, we’re versed in all the traditional fabrication arts and recognized for the handsome execution of our designs both above and under the hood. While we’re employing advanced fabrication techniques at our California and Connecticut facilities, we are building world-class, champion GT race cars at Callaway Competition. Constructing these machines requires forming, cutting, machining, welding with a wide variety of metals. Callaway Competition’s expertise in carbon fiber and other composite materials also allows them to produce lightweight, strong structural components and body panels. Traditional German craftsmanship combined with innovative, state-of-the-art technologies results in clever, efficient fabrication solutions.

The Callaway Corvette Z06R GT3, one of the most powerful, successful and reliable GT Racers is built by Callaway Competition GmbH in Leingarten Germany. There is no factory support in building European racing Corvettes, so each detail is developed by the Callaway Competition team, directed by General Manager, Ernst Woehr. It all starts with a completely-stock Corvette Z06 road car. After removing all of the interior and stripping the car down to the bare aluminum chassis, the car gets its steel roll cage. Since the FIA steel roll cage cannot be welded to the Corvette’s aluminum frame, the roll cage is bolted and bonded to the chassis on steel supports. Hundreds of manhours are spent converting the world-class road car into a world-class GT racer. Most of the carbon fiber parts on the car are hand-made at Callaway Competition to provide the best possible quality standards.
