Custom Metals began over 30 years ago with Don Schmidt. With projects under our belt such as restoration of the Wisconsin State Capitol, we’ve continued to grow in both manpower and expertise since day one. Tony Cole, current owner, has been in the metalwork industry for many years, solely with Custom Metals, Inc. since 1999. He purchased the company from his father-in-law, Don, in 2008. Custom Metals, Inc. specializes in architectural and ornamental metalwork of all types. Our versatile staff will advise, design, draft, fabricate, finish, and install your unique projects. We’re experienced craftsmen working with Steel, Stainless Steel, Brass, Bronze, Copper, Pewter, Aluminum and Zinc. Finishes include high polish, satin grain, paint, patina, wax, lacquer, powder-coat and more. We enjoy working with talented staff many of whom have been here for over a decade, and are experts in their positions. To us, metalwork is art, and art is our livelihood and passion.
