At Metko, our diverse fabrication and welding capabilities enables our team to be the one source for all your needs. Founded in 1971, we are proud to be family owned and operated. Three generations have forged Metko’s quality driven culture and will continue to provide innovation and direction to remain at the forefront of the industry for years to come.
In 1971, original owner of Metko, David McCarthy, opened its doors as a small family business with six people. Metko started off producing a product line of feeders and conveyors to meet the growing needs in the dairy industry. Metko continued the farm support products but also began to grow into custom fabrication. This new direction ushered in our first CNC machines. As the company grew we began to touch many industries expanding our abilities and becoming noticed as a dependable quality fabricator.
In 1998, Michael McCarthy took over as CEO and focused the company on defined and reliable business process which included achieving our ISO certification. This focus also included acquiring a series of industry firsts in technology to handle the wide variety of requirements customers were looking for.
As the business grew there was also a growing demand for a manufacturer to produce custom quality tanks. Beginning in 2005, Metko answered the demand and began our Specialty Tank and Reservoir division producing very high quality and leak free tanks.
In 2014, Patrick McCarthy and Eric Burger, Michael’s son and son-in-law joined the team. Their goal is to continue to grow the company yet maintain the family values loved by the employees.
Between 2017 and 2018 a lot changed at Metko. We acquired more industry firsts in technology, expanded our production facility, re-certified our ISO, and introduced our Boot Camp training program for new employees.
Today we serve many industries including automotive, POP, health and fitness, agriculture, power, construction, and governmental.
From the beginning, we have been firm believers in technology and superior quality. Our innovation extends to our internal methods, equipment, and training to create efficiencies and cost savings that can be passed to our customers. Our approach has led to many industry firsts:
“Metko’s custom metal fabrication capabilities and experienced knowledge drives results that matter. From concept to delivery, our relentless commitment to superior quality ensures your success.”
