Sheet metal workers are unique in the construction industry as the only trade that designs, manufactures and installs our own products. The term “sheet metal” refers to any metal that can be formed into flat pieces of varying thicknesses. Using specialized tools, these skilled craftspersons take ordinary types of flat metal and make them into specialized products for various duct and ventilation systems, as well as architectural and specialized metal fabrication. Members of the trade are proud of its special distinction: They not only build; they create.
