Custom Metals

Custom Metals was founded in 1974, and has made a name for itself pioneering innovations in sheet metal and plate fabrication, installation, and maintenance. Custom Metals serves a broad range of industries, including steel, power, cement, pulp and paper, food processing, and petrochemical.

From our origins as an HVAC fabricator, Custom Metals has grown into one of the largest heavy plate fabricators in America. We still operate a large HVAC shop today, and we specialize in complex projects, such as elevated ductwork, hoppers, and pressure vessels.

At Custom Metals, we shop-assemble all pieces to ensure that, once delivered, the pieces will fit. We bring value-engineering ideas to the table during fabrication, transportation, and erecting. Custom Metals offers field assembly of our shop-fabricated platework and we can utilize our sister company Schueck Steel in order to offer complete installation of our fabricated platework.
