Ryan Weber- Owner

Graduated from University of Montana Tech and interned with Jarod Prindle at AFW.

I Bought Rocky Mountain Radiator in 2008 and at the same time started Montana Auto and Fabrication. I Love the outdoors and playing with the toys that I build. If I’m not out playing I’m in the shop working. Building one of a kind projects not only is fun but keeps me sharp!

Chris K.

I was born and raised in Helena, MT. I attended Helena High School and continued my education at Helena College for the Welding, Machining and Metals Technologies Degrees.

I am passionate about Fabrication, Machining and anything with a motor. My latest personal project was a 1989 Toyota 4runner rock crawler build. When I'm not in the shop working I'm enjoying the outdoors wheeling, boating and riding dirt-bikes.

Trevor Bowman

I moved to Helena three years ago looking to learn a trade and begin a career. I left behind my family ranch and six siblings in the Bitterroot Valley. Growing up on the ranch I learned a lot about hard work and dedication along with my fascination of building and fixing things. This led to my interest in welding and fabrication.

I chose to enroll in the industrial welding program at Helena College. I completed the full two years and received my degree. Shortly after, I enrolled in the machine technology program to further my education.

It was in the Machining program that I met Ryan Weber. After a short couple months of class I started working here at Montana Auto and Fabrication. I love what I do and I enjoy working with all the guys. There truly is never a dull moment here at the shop.

When I’m not in the shop fixing the unfixable and building the unbreakable, you can find me in the woods or somewhere on the water hunting, fishing, wheeling or just exploring.


My name is TY, I was born and raised in Kansas and moved around until I found Helena Montana. I enjoy working and fabricating on projects and customizing vehicles.

The custom life is a better life.


Born and raised in Helena, MT. Welding and fabricating sparked an interest in me early so I decided to follow it and make it a career.

I graduated Helena College from the welding program with an associate of applied science degree. My other hobbies include hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and wheeling.

I have worked at Montana Auto and Fabrication for six years. We will treat you with excellent service and products. Feel free to stop in and see what we are all about.

As a long time friend of Ryan's, I look forward to spending the winter months with the guys in the shop.

I have had a life long passion for off road vehicles and old muscle cars. My family and I love Montana and all it has to offer.

I have watched Ryan grow this business with passion and enthusiasm from a double car garage to one of the most reputable and trusted fab shops in the state. Come check out the shop, support a local business, and see what we can create for you!
