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.
Custom Metals has three fabrication facilities in Little Rock, Arkansas, and
Jonesboro, Arkansas. Our state-of-the-art heavy-plate shop in Little Rock was
built in 2007, and spans 120,000 square feet. This shop contains 10 overhead
cranes with lifting capacities of up to 80 tons and hook heights up to 40 feet.
Our Little Rock facility uses CNC-controlled burn tables, and it has plate-rolls
capable of rolling plates up to 2.5 inches thick. We also have the ability to
fabricate miscellaneous structural steel that is associated with our plate
Custom Metals has an additional 25,000-square-foot HVAC shop in Little Rock
with the ability to fabricate large commercial and industrial HVAC projects. Our
14,000-square-foot shop in Jonesboro can fabricate HVAC ductwork, lighter
weight steel ductwork, and miscellaneous structural steel.
Custom Metals has a proven track record with USDA and FDA projects in the
meat, poultry, dairy, bakery, and cereal processing markets. Our facilities in
both Little Rock and Jonesboro specialize in stainless food processing fabrication,
installation, and plant maintenance. Our Jonesboro facility serves as a hub for a
significant plant maintenance operation.
All of our shops have the ability to work with a wide range of steel, including
A36, A752 Grade 50, 516 Grade 70, aluminum, and chromalloy.
Our Little Rock facilities have the ability to ship by truck, rail, and barge.
Depending on the project destination and offload capabilities, we also have the
ability to provide shop-assembly of large pieces shipped by barge.
