The company, located in Florissant, Mo., began in 1997, according to president Kelly Luckett, and has doubled its sales each year, reaching $1.2 million this past year.
Saint Louis Metalworks forms all its sheet metal on hand-operated Tennsmith apron brakes, according to Luckett. "Until recently, we cut all of our metal on a Wilder 16 gage slitter. We are just getting used to our 'new' 1965 model Wysong 10 foot shear." The company has been busy working on several high profile projects in the area, including the one pictured here at the college, two Lowes Home Improvement stores, Home Depot, Target, Wal Mart, Southwest Bank, Drury Inn, and 25 to 30 local area schools.
