50 Years in Business

Founded in 1971

Happy Anniversary, Metko!

Metko opened its doors in 1971 with six employees. What started off as a job shop for custom metal fabrication soon added its own line of conveying and feeding equipment for the Dairy Industry, has grown into a diverse range of metal fabrication and welding capabilities.

Today, we have grown and our services and capabilities include complete custom sheet metal fabrication, high quality chemical, hydraulic and fuel tank products along with assembly and packaging for your products.

From the beginning, we have been firm believers in technology and superior quality. Three generations have forged Metko’s quality-driven culture, which has led to many industry firsts. Thanks to all who have helped us reach and celebrate 50 years in business!
